I have had a passion for handspinning for the last 30 years or more, hence the name on my labels. I find it grounding, soothing and very creative. I love using my handspun in my own knitting and weaving projects and I also love sharing my skeins with you.

This yarn has been handspun by me and is similar in diameter to a 10ply (Aran) weight yarn.
I blended the colours of wool and silk and a tiny bit of stellina sparkle on my drumcarder and spun this yarn. (It has been two plied from two bobbins and took me 3-4 hours to spin.
The yarn is gradient spun and cycles from purple through to blue, green and yellow. It is plied with a single colour merino yarn.
It has lots of bounce and is woollen spun to keep the yarn light and airy.
The yarn would work well knit, crocheted or woven.
140g - 204m
Needle size - 4.50-5mm

Handwash gently with a few drops of mild detergent in cool water.
