My Favorite Jeans - is this an art yarn? A luxury yarn? Both? I'll let you decide.

Handspun from 2.5 ounces of off-white Alpaca with scraps of denim carded in, it's soft, shiny, silky and drapes wonderfully. I'd classify it as a worsted weight - it's a bit thick and thin, 2-ply and has a great hand. It really does look like my favorite jeans!

The soft, silky hand of the yarn will make for a very interesting texture in a knitted or crocheted piece - nice and warm as a scarf or cowl. It would look great paired with anything!

Although I do use hand spindles, most of my yarns are spun and plied on my trusty, hard-working Ashford wheel and finished with a warm bath in Eucalan or lavendar wash.

Because it is handspun, there will be slight differences throughout - that’s the beauty of handmade.

Hand wash, please, and lay flat to dry - it will felt.

The skein can be wound into a center pull ball if you choose - I’ll be glad to do it for you, and there will be no extra charge for it. Unless I hear otherwise, though, it will be shipped in skein form.

I’ll bet you thought I was all about clay, didn’t you? Fibers (of just about any kind) are my second favorite working medium. While I can lose myself completely with clay on my trusty, old kickwheel, there’s a different calming that occurs while treadling and listening to the flyer turning when spinning my fibers.

I don’t allow my curious kitties to play in the fibers, but they do like to supervise and once in a while a stray hair or two will find its way into the yarns. If you’re sensitive to cats, please bear this in mind.


As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. And, thank you for taking the time to look!

All my items come from a non-smoking, kitty friendly home.

I can (and do) ship internationally - if your shipping destination isn’t listed, send me a message so I can add it for you.

All purchases are mailed or put into production the next business day after payment has been completed.
