Greynbow - 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: 100% baby alpaca (apx 8 oz)
Approximate weight: worsted

Other notes: I was less than halfway through the braid of baby alpaca from Jakira Farm when I decided I wanted to ply it with something dark, probably a black baby alpaca. I happened to be going to a fiber festival that weekend, and I just so happened to see the PERFECT complementary alpaca roving. It was black instead of grey blended with the same colors as the Jakira top. I LOVE this skeins so much!
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.
