This is a really special yarn. I created it in several steps, firstly spinning a long rainbow BFL single while flinging the gold thread around it in lots and lots of tangley loops. Then I navajo (chain) plied it, a technique of plying it around itself and forming a three ply yarn, this keeps the colours nicely together and traps the gold thread loops into the yarn. This is how I make my Entangled yarn, but then I added another step! I coiled the yarn around a core, creating this gorgeous thick 'rope' of a yarn, bursting with gold treasure and vibrantly showing off its rainbow hues. It has an amazing weight and drape to it! Because of the intense build up of yarn around this core, what starts out as 100 yard of yarn ends up finished at less than 10 yard, there is a lot of fiber packed into this yardage!

I would love to just make this just as it is into a necklace or infinity scarf, you do also fingerknit it to do the same. Or it could be stitched onto an piece of clothing to make an incredible and unique trim, you could even hang it on your wall as an artwork! There are plenty more possibilities and I am sure you will find your own creation to sparkle with this yarn :)

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.
