This Color Reminds Me Of Kitties - 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: 60% polwarth wool + 40% silk
Approximate weight: sport
Approximate yardage: 448
Fiber from: Jakira Farm (Iowa)
Colorway Name: None given; I've been calling it "the kitty colorway"
Other notes: This fiber was just GOOOOOORGEOUS. I wonder if it was processed on the farm and not in a commercial space, because there were very chunky areas with small bits of clumpy crimpy wool & lumps of silk (which I removed during spinning). It was so beautiful to spin and I loved it 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.
