Handspun yarn is a true delight to work with; watch the colors undulate and make your work sing! If you've only ever worked with commercially spun yarn, you'll find that using handspun will bring out a new joy in your craft.

2-ply yarn is an all-purpose yarn, best suited for stockinette and lace items. The structure of 2-ply really makes lace shine. The yardage here would be perfect for a small shawl, sport-weight socks, or mittens.
Shetland wool is a mid-grade wool that is relatively soft, but might not be soft enough for those that are especially sensitive to wool. It is a long-lasting fiber, and is suitable for outerwear items, or items that see a relatively higher wear rate, such as socks. It is one of my favorites to work with.

Yarn is spun in a cat friendly home. The cats are not allowed in the fiber, but those with extreme sensitivities should be aware.
