HANDSPUN Yarn - Floribunda Collection - Nastursium - Laceweight Single Skein - 235 yards

Colours - green, pale green, yellow green, orange, red, yellow, brown green

Lovely gift for the knitter who loves gardening too!

A medium laceweight single with a lot of loft and finesse in hues of clambering and happy nastursiums that are currently adorning my window box - see pic - and my troughs in my backyard.

Real heralds of hot summer days I wanted to put all that vibrant nastursium energy and joy into fiber form. I handcarded 8 or so rolags in all the colours and then spun them on my Wee Peggy wheel. I hope it says nastursium to you too.

Would make a pretty shrug or cuff detail etc and will knit/crochet/weave in a striped manner.

I used cormo, superfine merino, merino/cashmere blend, wild silk and angelina. The cormo gives a rustic and slightly bobbly texture here and there which I love.

Spun from my own handcarded fibers I prepared about 8 individual rolags using several layers of finely carded and blended fibers creating lofty and soft batches!

Fibers may include some or all of these -
cormo
merino
merino cashmere
tussah silk
and a pinch of angelina here and there for the magic*
