Item details

This skein of purple and pink hand dyed, handspun yarn started as a Shetland fleece, which was processed into roving at a small mill in MIchigan. I dyed the roving by hand and then spun the roving into yarn and plied it on my spinning wheel. It is a two-ply yarn, thick & thin, ranging from bulky to worsted weight, but--I think--could be knit at close to a bulky gauge.
This yarn would be perfect for cozy winter accessories--hat, cowl, mitts or mittens, scarf. For weaving, it would be beautiful weft
Type of fiber 100% Shetland wool
Weight--thick & thin, ranging from bulky to worsted weight
Weight of skein 5.3 oz.
Length approx. 140 yards

Photographed in natural light, but the color shown on your computer may differ from the actual color.
This yarn comes from a smoke-free, cat-friendly home. It will be shipped in a zip-top plastic bag, with a sachet of lavender. If you want me to omit the lavender, just let me know.
To care for this yarn, hand wash it gently in cool water, using a mild detergent or wool wash. Squeeze out the excess water in a towel, then lay flat to dry.. This yarn has been thoroughly washed and rinsed after dyeing, however, some additional color may still wash out of it, so I recommend washing it separately from other items.
