This is a bulky or chunky-to-worsted weight hand spun art yarn, spun from an art batt I created. It has rich blues, pinks, violets and purples, which I then plied with a yellow silk yarn that I also hand spun. There’s quite a bit of sparkle added in for that extra oomph.
The yarn was core spun. Since the silk yarn I plied it with is much thinner, you get this very lovely and fun bubble look to it, which would look marvellous on any project where texture is queen.
The colour sequence varies but the skein is self-striping, meaning each colour will repeat itself as you knit, crochet or weave, making the blues, purples, pinks and yellow really pop. Glorious!
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.
