Let’s talk chain-plied yarns. It’s a type of hand spun that keeps the colour blocks together in the order you spun (no “barber polling”), and because it creates a 3-ply skein in appearance, the thread is rounder than a 2-ply and therefore much better suited for knitting projects with cables.
This was spun from a lovely hand dyed wool top comprised of 80% merino wool and 20% nylon. Soft, sturdy, and won’t felt!
I really like the ultramarine blue and the way it contrasts with the rich orange, with yellow and soft pink sections. This is a yarn that holds visual attention and would look great in a hat or cowl.
With 163 yards to knit or crochet with, you can create the most fun multicolour project to wear or show off. I started the adventure by hand spinning this fibre, now it’s your turn to continue the wool’s creative journey.
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.
