SALE - I'm clearing out my stash to make room for new yarns - was $30!

This Icelandic fleece from Last Resort Farm in Nova Scotia demands to express its personality - it resists carding and insists on bulky, textured spinning. Wonderful, says I, because it's fun to spin that way and allow the sheep to have the last word. But I get to pick the colours!

The Icelandic was kettle-dyed in rich reds that sometimes tend towards fuchsia with a bit of burnt orange, and spun into a lovely thick single, which I then plied with a superwash merino dyed a rusty orange, and wrapped with metallic gold and red threads. The result is this super bulky solid, textured yarn.

5.95 oz / 169 g

Fibres: Icelandic wool, Superwash Merino wool, metallic threads (polyester)

This wool was handpainted by me in my smoke-free, cat-friendly home using professional dyes, spun on my Ashford traditional wheel, and then treated to a relaxing Eucalan soak.

Care instructions: Wash and rinse gently in tepid or cool water, squeeze out excess water in a towel, dry flat.

SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping does not include insurance or tracking. If you would like these services, please let me know and I will adjust shipping costs.
