This is a limited offering of this soft, single-ply lightly-spun worsted weight yarn. It is very airy & reminds me of beginner hand-spun yarn. I consider this a thicker worsted weight yarn. I got the following gauges: #5US 5.5sts/in.; #6US 4.75sts/in.; #7US 4.5sts/in.; #8US 4.25sts/in. It is also considered a superwash yarn, but as I’ve worked with it during the dyeing & knitting process, I suspect it will felt pretty easily if washed in the washer.

Seeing as it’s only a single ply, it is a delicate fiber & not well suited for garments such as a sweater, simply for the durability & pilling factor. I would suggest using this for things such as: hat, scarf, cowl, mittens, cup cozy…

I was able to make a hat & 6” cowl from one skein of this yarn.

When photographing my yarns & fibers, I strive to capture their true essence, but please know that there may be subtle differences between the pictures you see and the yarn or fiber you receive.
