Autumnal Rainbow - Angela's Handspun
Handspun yarns are the most precious of skeins; so I believed from the very first time I ever knit with one.
I tried on and off to get into spinning myself, but it wasn't until I got my Electric Eel Wheel 6.0 from Dreaming Robots that it really clicked for me, and I've been addicted ever since!
It's a great way to spend my crafting time when my hands hurt too much to knit or crochet (which is, unfortunately, most of the time) and I've come to learn so much about fiber and yarn since.
I've included all of my photos from the spinning process, so you can see the very origins of your newest stash member.
I'm so tickled to finally be able to sell my own handspun; I can't wait to see what you make with it!!
Fiber content: 50% polwarth, 50% corriedale
Approximate weight: fingering
Approximate yardage: 996
Fiber from: Kingdom Fleece & Fiberworks

Other notes: This set of skeins is apx 8 oz of fiber altogether. It began as 2 glorious bags of pin-drafted roving. It was such a delight to spin! There are markers in the skeins to indicate exactly where they were split so you can join them there if you wish.
Please note that handspun skeins are just that - they are spun by hand, not machine. Variations in yarn thickness is expected. These skeins are completely unique and cannot be replicated. Yardage is approximate - I wind my skeins using a 2yd autowinder and count the yardage before removing the skeins. They then are washed & finished, and some shrinkage may occur. Skeins are sold as shown - if they are bundled together, we won't split them up. If you have any additional questions, please email us at hello at mollygirlyarn dot com.
