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.
