This is my first Spinsleydale skein — an incredibly soft and lustrous wool from a crossbred sheep that I'm totally falling in love with. I handpainted the locks and spun them without carding, giving this lovely soft yarn.

You can see the handpainted fleece (and purchase it!) here:

3.9 oz / 110 g
87 yards / 79.5 m
wpi 7 or chunky-aran
Fibre: Spinsleydale wool

This yarn began as raw fleece, cleaned and dyed by me in my smoke-free, cat-friendly home using professional acid dyes. It was handcarded and spun on my Ashford traditional wheel, and then treated to a relaxing unscented Eucalan soak.

Care instructions: Wash and rinse gently in tepid or cool water, squeeze out excess water in a towel, dry flat.

SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping does not include insurance or tracking. If you would like these services, please let me know and I will adjust shipping costs.
