This beautiful handspun yarn is handpainted in shades of pink, purple, blue and green. This soft and cuddly skein would make a lovely cowl or beautiful woven fabric. This is a special blend containing 30% Tussah silk for wonderful shine and drape. Makes a great gift for a knitter or weaver.

Falkland is a strong, soft fiber from the Falkland Islands in the Southern Atlantic. It is not a specific breed, but rather grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the island. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool. Falkland is 24 to 28 micron, thus creating a soft and squishy yarn suitable for next-to-skin projects.

This listing is for one skein of worsted weight yarn, as shown.

Blend contains:
70% Falkland wool
30% Tussah silk

275 yds
4.2 oz

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel, in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to handwash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like this yarn in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
