Up for sale here is one of my all time favourite art yarns!! I can't quite believe I am listing it, but it wants to be used... Basically, it's a single ply handspun Wensleydale yarn with cocoons of a mixed fibre batt from a friend. The mixed fibres are reeeeally bright colours and have some mohair curls in there as well.
What you need to know about Wensleydale wool is that it is a longwool with immense luster, but it is slightly less soft than a Merino or Corriedale. At the same time it is a lot shinier and in its original state very curly, which sometimes gives the spun yarn a bit of movement as well. It is better compared to mohair fibre than most of the more commonly known sheep wools. As a wool, it is very dense and heavy, hence this hank weighs in at a stunning 8.5oz!! Keep this weight in mind when you are planning a project for this yarn, you will get 188 yards, plenty to keep you going! The cocoons are far thicker than the main yarn, resulting in a beautiful texture when used.
