Yet another new line of Coolclimates yarn! This unique yarn is made from 7 strands of different yarns spun together. Most of the yarns are upcycled from unraveled sweaters. I washed the sweaters and took them apart to get some really cool yarns. There is also a beige textured yarn from Habu Textiles, a white and gold textured thread from Sibu Yarns in Chicago (this is a vintage yarn) and a hand dyed orange merino lace wool from Uruguay. The yarns are different blends of wool, cotton, mohair, nylon, ramie, rayon and angora.

Because most of the yarns are from unraveled sweaters, they have some curl to them. However when I spun them all together, a lot of the curl gets eliminated. But the texture is quite unique. Please note that there are a couple of knots in the yarn due to the nature of the original sources.

This ecofriendly yarn is a palette of pumpkin, tiger lily, peach, mint, black, copper, violet, cream, gold and beige.
you get 110 yards and it weighs approximately 5.4 ounces/153 grams.
It's a bulky weight yarn, recommended needle size is US 11 and up for knitting and size L hook and up for crochet.
