About Hand Painted Abstract Yarn
Each yarn skein is an abstract painting unto itself. Although potentially painted in batches every skein will differ. I do repeat my colourways, but they are never exactly the same as the ones that came before. I am guided by new inspirations each time I dye.
If you are interested in larger quantities (say enough to knit a sweater) of any of my yarn pleas contact me I am happy to do custom orders and offer sweater quantity discounts. I can even dye yarn to an inspiration photo (see the custom order section under FAQ).
This Canadian Merino Yarn is made up of one strand of Mule Spun singles, this is a premier superfine yarn. It can be used in knitting machines, for hand knitting, or in weaving as weft, single ply yarns are not recommended for warp. This wool handles like a light fingering weight yarn.
- 183m/ 200 yards
- 50 gm/ 1.75 oz skein.
One skein will make a small to medium sized kerchief scarf and works beautiful with other commercial yarns of the same weight or with hand spun yarns.
This yarn is mill spun from 100% pure new wool sourced directly from farmers in Western Canada and through the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers. Canadian wool is noticeably different than other wool - our sheep live in extreme temperatures and so their wool is loftier (more fluffy and bulky) and often of higher quality then some other wools
This is 100% wool and will felt. Hand wash gently with Eucalan of Unicorn Fibre Wash and Rinse. See the Woolly Washing section of my shop for these products.
