FREE SHIPPING in North America on all handspun yarn and wearables!

This gorgeous handspun yarn is dyed in a pallet of bright pink, orange and red, and has been chain plied to keep colors intact. Polwarth is a super soft and squishy yarn that's perfect for next-to-skin items, and the high silk content provides beautiful drape and luxurious softness. Great for weaving too!

Polwarth sheep are originally Australian and are named after Polwarth - a region near Colac in Victoria. Polwarth are a cross between the Merino and Lincoln breeds. At 23.5 microns, their fleece is super soft and the resulting yarn is full of bounce and very suitable for next to skin wear.

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

Blend contains:
60% Polwarth wool
40% Tussah silk

297 yds
4.0 oz
12-14 wpi

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

This yarn will felt. If that is not your intention, please be sure to handwash gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

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