I had a wonderful time creating this highly textured, unique, artful yarn. First I collected a variety of soft wools that I dyed myself (charcoal gray, beige, mauve), along with silk noils and threads and, of course, sparkle. I ran this mess through my drum carder, creating a chunky, textural batt. I corespun the batt, adding insertions of fluffed lincoln lamb and fine mohair locks in in chunks, so there would be curls and squiggles sticking out. Once the initial single ply yarn was spun, I plied it with a sparkly lace weight commercial yarn, allowing the locks and fibers to twist and bloom a bit as I went.
This yarn has been wet finished, and hung to dry without weight. It is balanced, and will not cause bias in your knitting, and the various components are securely spun in. You can knit or crochet with this, weave with it (amazing!), or even sew it onto another piece of fabric, be it felted, woven, knit, etc.
Check out my handmade shawl sticks and pins, they are great for quickly turning a scarf into a cowl. I will combine shipping and refund excess charged if you order from two or more of my shops.
