I have been having lots of fun on my spinning wheel!
Hand spun on my spinning wheel by me, this one of a kind skein is soft and lovely to the touch. Resembles a delicate strand of pearls! Now available in my Etsy Shop
This art yarn is hand crafted and spun from super wash merino wool (known for its exquisite, next to skin softness) in a thick and thin single ply. It is then plied with a commercial silk yarn that is a fine lace weight, shimmery and quite strong. Together, they make a squishy, billowy texture that is sure to make a one of a kind statement
Recommended needle sizes are US 15 to US 19.
Hand wash and dry flat due to the delicate nature of the texture. Yarn will not felt. The twist is set with gentle steam.
Your project choices are unlimited!
To make the Pearls, No Purls Cowl in the last 2 photos, I simply cast on 83 stitches and knit in the round for approximately 19 rounds on US 19, 24” circular needles for an airy knit. It is made with 5.2 ounces of yarn. It is blocked to measure 8.5” wide and generous circumference of 52” for reference. Light and airy yet soft and warm. Great for a last minute gift!
