$32.00 USD

This yarn is shades of brown, blue, pink, gray and beige.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, with a total weight of 4.1 oz., spun at an average of 1250 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. The total yardage for the skein is about 320 yards, and it wraps at 12-15. This yarn was hand painted in the wool here at Edgewood Garden Studio.

Polwarth is an under-used fleece, it’s soft and spongy, dyes beautifully, spins fluffy and feels cuddly. The tussah silk adds additional shine and luxury. This fiber is sourced from Ashland Bay, and is hand dyed here at Edgewood Garden Studio.

See my Store Policy FAQs section for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yard weights, a bit about sheep breeds and yarn softness and care instructions for different fibers.

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.
