Handspun yarn - Silk / Falkland wool, DK weight, 350 yards - Night's Enchantment

$40.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This handspun yarn is shades of blue, purple and maroon.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 4.2 oz., spun at an average of 1335 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. These 350 yards wrap at approximately 12-15. The fiber is sourced from World of Wool and hand dyed in the wool here at Edgewood Garden Studio.

This skein has a knot partway through, to fix a break that occurred during plying.

This is our own custom blend of 70% Falkland wool and 30% tussah silk, run through the blenders five times for the best possible integration. This Falkland is soft and strong, with a 28 micron diameter and 3-4 inch staple length.

Falkland is not a specific breed, but rather is grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the islands. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool.

My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
