Handspun Silk / BFL wool yarn, DK weight, 310 yards - Foxy Tweed

$31.00 USD

This handspun, hand painted yarn is shades of red, brown and orange.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 3.8 oz., spun at an average of 1305 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. These 310 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.

BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s which produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautiful soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces. This yarn is a combination of that wonderful fleece with 30% tussah silk for added luxury and softness.

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.
