NewYorkCityHandspun's Shop Announcement

Welcome! I make handspun yarn with combinations of unusual fibers. I'm trained as a herbalist so I can't help but lean toward plant fibers - flax, hemp, nettles, soy, and bamboo - and I also try to use lots of reclaimed and recycled things such as fabric and thread leftover from clothing production, and even fiber made from recycled plastic bottles! And of course I love all kinds of fleece :-) I use the best quality fibers available and try to get as much local fleece as I can.

My yarns vary widely in style but all have one thing in common: they are spun in a "thick and thin" style which gives them a definite handspun look when knitted up or woven. They are noticeably and purposefully handmade.

All fibres are ethically sourced, any dyes are non toxic, and the yarns are spun in a pet and smoke free environment. For more information about the fibres used and other handydandy stuff, please visit my website and blog:

Yarn weights (gauge) are determined by Ravelry's Standard Yarn Weights: http://www.ravelry.com/help/yarn/weights

Thanks very much for stopping by!

PS: Some of you may know me as LondonHandspun but I changed my shop name when I relocated to Brooklyn :-)
