Item details

Although I spin a lot I don't list much yarn because I knit and weave most of it for my own use. Now and again the pile of handspun does get out of hand and need to be pruned back a bit. This is a two ply yarn that I spun from tussah silk that I'd dyed in pinks and purples. It's only a little skein because I started with an oddment of silk. It's made a lightweight yarn that rustles.

It's a single skein with no knots, weighing 77g and measuring 560 yards (measured after washing, 298 turns of a skein measuring 34"). I'm not a reliable measurer of wpi but I'm confident that everyone would agree that this is laceweight. The small green item in the photos is the standard international Tic Tac for scale.

All items come from a smoke free home, I've a small dog but he doesn't play in the wool.

I am now posting all UK packages by second class mail. If you want the security of recorded delivery or the speed of first class post please ask me to create a custom listing for you with the correct postage cost. I don't set out to make money on the postage, if I can send it cheaper I will and I'll refund you the saving.

The cost of overseas combined postage is a bit of a guessing game because the weight bands are smaller and I don't have standard weight items. If I've overcharged you by more than 50p I will refund it.


I live in the UK so you if you do too you can pay me by sterling bank transfer or sterling cheques or PO. Other payment methods are Paypal or folding dollars or euros, basically if I can spend it then I'll take it. Depending on what time of year it is I may be accepting Amazon vouchers too - ask me about this one.

Additional policies

I'm happy to do custom dyeing and I can dye much bigger lots than 100g so if you were wanting something for a larger project feel free to ask me about it. I should declare that I have issues with red, both dyeing it and photographing it, so if the fibre of your dreams is red then you'd best ask elsewhere.

I'm happy to spin fibre into yarn for you, I'd rather not spin laceweight or three ply sock yarn because it's such a huge time commitment. That's not to say I won't do it but you'd better be sitting down when I tell you how much it will cost you.
