This hand-spun wool yarn is full of colour and character - predominantly soft pinks merging into apricot and tawny russet shades with soft mid-blue pastel blue, and just a little contrasting dark brown/black. Like the changing sky of a spring dawn.

The yarn is a mix of various fleeces, including merino and shetland - and there is a very small amount of cotton. Its quite soft, possibly best not for use next to particularly sensitive or allergic skin, but fine for most.

This is a slubby, thick and thin yarn, 2 strands plyed - on average, around chunky weight, it wraps at between 5 and 9 per inch - but please take these descriptions as general/average, its not possible to accurately describe the weight of a yarn which such great variation and texture.

The weight of this hank of yarn is 215 grammes / 750 oz, the meterage is approx. 203 yards / 185 metres.

We offer a free yarn winding service - if you would prefer to receive this yarn in a ball rather than a hank, and you don't have winding equipment, please let us know, we can do this for you for no extra cost.
