Handspun art yarn, wool, curls, kid mohair, silk, Angelina sparkle, blue by SpinningStreak

Product Description:

A new range of handspun yarn. For this one I prepared an art yarn batt on my drum carder (see last picture) The batt included various wools, silk threads, Wensleydale locks and a touch of Angelina sparkle. I then spun it up and plied it with a fine kid mohair mix yarn in variegated shades of light and dark blue, with a definite twinkle from a subtle metallic thread. The wool is spun slightly thick and thin with some slubs - please see last picture against the tape measure for an accurate idea of the gauge. The skein is soft and chunky in various shades of green and blue with flashes of purple and lilac - funky and unique enough to be called an 'art yarn', but totally usable. It would make an amazing original hat, maybe with a plain ribbed edge or a great pair of unique hand warmers, with a toning welt - or, of course, it could be used as an embellishment in a larger project or in weaving
