 This skein of handspun has a little bit of everything in it. Greens, greys, golds, mauves, blues, all dancing together throughout this beauty!

This 100% Untreated Merino fibre was spun up into a fingering weight, 2 ply yarn, using my Ashford E-Spinner. This skein took about 12 hours to spin, which is why the price point is elevated in comparison to commercially spun yarn. 

I used 22 Micron Untreated Merino Fibre to spin this yarn. You’ll need to be mindful of sharp temperature increases and decreases when washing this yarn, as it could felt if burned with hot water or put in the dryer. Some dye bleeding during the soaking process is normal with untreated wool. 

This skein is 82 grams and approximately 362 yards. A perfect amount of yardage for a contrast colour in a sweater, or shawl. The yarn itself is soft, and has great bounce to it, the colours are muted and soft.

Hand spun yarn is special to work with, as it really does have a personality of it’s own, compared to commercially spun yarn. It is, by nature, imperfect, making your hand knits even more wonderful and unique! 

Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry to preserve the dyes and quality of the fabric.
