What's the difference between fleecespun and handspun wools? Fleecespun wools are spun from wool locks- the yarn has some lumpy, bumpy texture to it. It also might have ends of locks sticking out, curls and crimps, etc. Handspun wools are spun from carded wools and have a more uniform, flat texture. When you knit a handspun yarn the stitch definition is very defined and crisp. Fleecespun yarns knitted highlight color and texture of the yarn and stitches are less defined. See my About page for a pic of a fleecespun shawl I knitted.
