Product Description:

Handspun art yarn, soft,various yarns, blue, purple, beige by SpinningStreak Are you ready for an art yarn? But one you can actually USE? Not something over twisted, lumpy, liable to come apart....or too wildly coloured? A new range of handspun yarn. For this one I prepared an art yarn batt on my drum carder (see last picture - predominantly purple sections selected) The batt included various wools, threads, Wensleydale locks and a touch of Angelina sparkle. I then spun it into an energised single and plied it with a merino mix yarn that I had hand dyed in a greyish purple. The wool is spun with slubs - please see last picture against the tape measure for an accurate idea of the gauge. The skein is chunky, in various shades of blue and purple with touches of grey and beige - funky and unique enough to be called an 'art yarn', but totally usable.
