This hand spun yarn is made using a core spinning method. I have wrapped the fibres around a strong core yarn and included the silk fibres to add colour. Then I used a hand dyed silk thread to ply it with for extra strength at the same time, a dark blue thread was wrapped around the yarn as it was being worked.
Just imagine knitting this up into something soft and squishy to wrap yourself up into like this lovely triangle scarf pattern.
This is a beautiful yarn and is spun with a lovely thick texture.
Hand dyed and spun from my Tasmanian superfine merino wool tops, this yarn looks and feels gorgeous.
Wear it as a beanie, scarf, neck wrap or add some other yarns to it and make it go further. Think outside the square with these yarns to get the best out of them

This yarn is chunky and will knit into an easy chunky neck wrap, cowl or beanie. Use some larger than usual needles for these yarns and combine the yarn with other yarns found here to make up the yardage required. I usually encourage my lovely knitters to think outside the square and let the yarn tell the story when working with these. Of course this yarn will felt and you can use it as detailing for wet felting.
Needle sizes will vary depending on what you are going to knit or weave with these yarns. I usually start with a larger size than you expect and work from there so you get the lovely softness in the drape and handle.
This is a hand dyed and hand spun yarn, I recommend a very gentle hand wash with an approved wool wash, roll in a towel and gently spin. Lay you finished item out flat to dry.
