Looking for some super bulky to super bulky art yarn for a quick project? This might be just what you need. This is a somewhat subtle art yarn, because it looks a little like a regular 2-ply sparkly yarn at first, but then you notice there are some cheeky blue Wensleydale locks spun into it here and there.

The pinks and purples of this hand spun yarn complement each other very well and the blue locks give it a surprising colour pop, plus an extra element of texture. Paired with the sparkle here and there, this is one fun art yarn skein to use in a quick knit or crochet project, such as a hat. It would also look amazing on a wall hanging project.

I used merino wool, silk, bamboo, sparkle and long Wensleydale locks to make this handspun yarn.

There are 79 yards of fun waiting for you (equivalent to 72 meters). Get this one-of-a-kind skein in your stash.

The journey of handspun art yarns

Hand spun yarns are special and full of character. They have a personality that commercial yarn just can’t get close to. Each yard of fibre has passed through the spinner’s loving hand to become what it is now: a glorious, squishy skein waiting for your imagination to turn into a knitting or crochet project you can be proud of.

When crafting with handspun, you are picking up the spinner’s work, continuing the fibre’s journey, and making it your own.

Be a part of this amazing handmade artistry.

  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
