This beautiful yarn was made by hand dying wool locks, heat setting them for colorfastness, picking them apart to fluff them up and hand spinning them on a purple mohair core. The purple doesn't show up as much as it does in the photo. This would add a lot of texture and interest to your project. The yarn would be great in weaving, knitting or crochet. The skein is about 36 yards. It can be hand washed and laid flat to dry. Smoke free/pet free home.
