This stunning handspun yarn is a full bright rainbow of color! Its like a big summer garden bursting with yellows and greens and blues and every shade between. I spun this with a lovely soft BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) which I had hand dyed in rainbow hues. As I spun I created the lovely beehive texture with small coils at even intervals along the length of the yarn. This texture looks fantastic both knitted and crocheted, like little caterpillars or seashells.

This very special yarn would make a lovely baby item, or a gorgeous addition to a larger project as a highlight or trim. You could make some amazing wrist cuffs, or finger crochet a necklace of rainbow coils! I've even known some customers to hang their rainbow skein on the wall just as it is, its so pretty :)

Length: 34.5 meters / 38 yards
Weight: 122 grams / 4.3oz
WPI: this yarn is thick and thin, the areas between coils is approx WPI 18 while the coils are up to WPI 4.

This yarn is handspun with love, it has its own unique character that adds something very special to your handmade woolen items. I have photographed this yarn as accurately as possible but please bear in mind that everyones screen can display colors differently, so there may be a small variation in the hues.

To keep shipping costs down, whenever possible I ship my skeins flat: folded and carefully tied, rather than in a twist, this allows me to keep shipping costs down and post as letter post, not as a parcel (Dutch post is much more costly for a parcel!). The yarn is tied and wrapped so that it will arrive to you great condition and easy to wrap into a ball!
