$34.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This handspun yarn was mill-dyed in shades of purple, black and white.

This listing is for one two-ply skein, weighing 5.4 ounces., spun at an average of 1035 ypp (yards per pound), a worsted weight. These 340 yards wrap at about 8-12. Like most handspun yarn, it is somewhat thick-and-thin.

Merino is the standard by which the fineness of wool is graded and is among the softest fleeces in the world. It’s an old breed, originally brought to the Iberian peninsula in the 12th or 13th century. Being small bodied, it is grown mostly for its exquisite wool. The staple is crimpy and shorter than some other popular breeds, but makes up for that in its legendary 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.
