Mini skeins of DK/Worsted weight handspun yarn, 70% super fine merino wool (19 micron) & 30% tussah silk, 14 wpi

Handspun from the fold using my vintage Ashford wheel and chain plied to give a lustrous, 3 ply yarn. This luxury yarn has a soft handle and good drape. Suitable for knitting, crochet, weaving and more. I've included an image of a woven scarf I made from similar yarn.

Combine it with other colours of my handspun merino/silk or other yarns of similar weight. This a double knitting or worsted weight yarn with a suggested tension/gauge of 22 stitches and 30 rows to 10cm/4" on 4mm needles. Combine it with other colours of my handspun merino/silk or other yarns of similar weight.

This yarn is supplied in a skein (hank) with contrasting yarn ties. I wind a hank for each bobbin of yarn I spin and then weigh it. This means you might see some odd weights but you won't find any joins in your yarn. The length (yardage) of each skein is calculated (from skein length and number of turns) individually to give you the most accurate figure. I suggest you wind the yarn into a ball before starting your project, if you'd like me to do that for you just leave me a note at checkout

Cool handwash only. This yarn may felt.
All my yarn is washed after spinning, this sets the twist and helps eliminate any loose dye. However, it's always a good idea to wash dark colours separately, just in case!
