Handspun yarn - Silk / Merino wool, DK weight, 470 yards - Remembrance

$52.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This yarn is shades of red, purple, blue, brown and orange.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 6.0 oz., spun at an average of 1255 ypp (yards per pound), a DK weight. These 470 yards wrap at approximately 12-15. Like most handspun yarn, it is slightly thick-and-thin.

This blend of 80% Merino wool and 20% tussah silk makes for an especially soft and luxurious yarn with superior strength and hand. It is sourced from Ashland Bay and dyed in the wool here at Edgewood Garden Studio.

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.
