Item details

This textured art yarn is handspun by me from Canadian Wensleydale wool.

Colour: natural creamy off white
Weight: 32
Grist: super bulky wpi
Yardage: 6.5 yds

I purchased the fleece right from the shepherdess and spun it straight from the lock using a 'coreless corespun' method. As each lock is spun I divide it into two sections; one is held in my right hand, and is drafted backward as I would normally spin, forming the core. The rest is held in my left hand and allowed to wrap around the core, creating the texture. It is incredibly lightweight and soft, with a fuzzy halo. It looks like a fluffy cloud, but don't let its appearance fool you: it is incredibly strong!

Because it is spun from farm wool, there may be a tiny amount of vegetable matter in the wool, but you can be sure that the wool is clean (ie nothing more sinister than a bit of grass).

This yarn behaves as a singles yarn. It has a bit of extra clockwise twist in it; even if you knit continental you can be sure that there's enough twist to keep the yarn sound.

This yarn would make a fantastic accent or trim on a hat, shawl, or scarf, or within a woven piece.

NB: Due to the fibre type this yarn has negligible stretch.
