Product Description:

Handspun art yarn, soft, bouncy, various yarns, red 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) 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 that I had hand dyed in a toning red. 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 fairly soft and chunky in red with flashes of emerald green, blue and creamy yellow - funky and unique enough to be called an 'art yarn', but totally usable.
