Handspun yarn - Wool/Silk blend

Handspun yarn - Wool/Silk blend

Regular price $28.00 Sale

This beige and brown yarn is an approximately heavy Worsted weight wool and silk blend and was handspun on a Kromski Minstrel spinning wheel, a castle-style wheel which looks much older than it actually is. 

As I said, this yarn is approximately worsted weight; I am not an even spinner so while not flat-out slubby, some parts are thicker than others (the beauty of handspun is that it's not always even like commercial yarn, making it more unique). This yarn was spun in a smoke-free, but not pet-free home; however, once spun it is kept in a bin which cats and dogs do not have access to.

Fiber Content: 80% Superwash Merino/20% Silk

HaldeCraft Handspun yarns started life with a desire to learn to spin wool inherited from a family member in 2002, continued to evolve in 2007 in a small yarn store in Gainesville, Florida (Hanks Yarn and Fiber) and has continued online since 2011. This yarn is hand-spun and lovingly re-skeined in a small home studio by someone who loves the fiber arts just as much as you do. While I tend to not add my handspun yarn into Ravelry as a particular base yarn, if you are looking for photos of HaldeCraft HandDyed colorways or finished objects and are on Ravelry, you can find my hand-dyed yarn in their database; just look for "HaldeCraft HandDyed".
