Orange/peach/pink, 20g mini skein of worsted/light aran weight handspun yarn, 70% merino wool & 30% bleached tussah silk, 42m (46 yds), 11 wpi

Viewed from a distance this yarn is peach. Get up close and personal with it and you'll find shades of orange, pink, yellow, even a little green spun together with bleached white tussah silk.

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. This is an aran or worsted weight yarn (9-12 wraps per inch )with a suggested tension/gauge of approximately 20 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm/4" on 4.5mm 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 check out.

Cool handwash only. This yarn may felt.
All my handspun 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!
