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.
It has been two plied from two bobbins and took me 3-4 hours to spin.
The yarn is soft but has texture and spots of the different coloured fibres throughout its length although the predominant colour is a lovely russet orange.
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.
