This hand spun yarn was spun by me from a dyed roving of Falkland wool. The colors change within the skein like the color changes from the inside to the outside of a pumpkin. This is not a glaring orange, but a soft warm rich pumpkin color.
The yarn is spun from Falkland wool which is soft and durable. This yarn was spun woolen for loft and bounce. It is not scratchy.
It is a 2 ply DK weight yarn. It is suitable for color accents for sweaters, hats mittens or other knitwear. I can easily see it being used in color work knitting.
