CANYON - Handspun Yarn with Luxury Fibers - 2 ply - ....

but wait - down from $74 to $34! Bargain or what!

An expression and exploration in colour and mood of my visit to the Grand Canyon in 2005. I hope you enjoy this yarn. It has been spun long backwards draw with my own loosely carded rolags which were used freely to create a natural motif.

The skein was wound from the bobbin and then soaked to set the twist in Sola by Soak a divine and limited edition fragrant fiber bath.

The skein was then placed on my swift and wound a second time to separate the fibers for ease of use. I felt that the single needed a partner and so drove to the next valley to my friend Anne's house (anneholv.etsy.com) where I found a perfect lovely lavender single Anne had spun in merino and silk. It was a match! I then plied these two handspuns together to get the yarn you see pictured.

I resoaked and dried the yarn. It has a lovely balance and smells even lovlier!

The result is a balanced 2 ply skein of 230 yards. There is no skew.

The LAST photo show the original skein's colours before I plied it with my friend's lavender single. This is to help you judge the colourway better.

Ready for your dreams and enjoyment**:)
