Handspun Superfine Merino Yarn - Fairy Woods - 345 yds. -2 ply
'Fairy Woods' is 4.1 oz. of hand-dyed Superfine Meino top spun to a single, then plied with an iridescent rayon thread for 345 yds. of loveliness. It's a slightly thick/thin handspun that averages out to about a light worsted weight. It's soft and has a great hand - definitely next to skin soft.
Use it for just about anything - cowls, hats, scarves.....
***Note that the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th photos may look a bit darker than it actually is.
All spun and plied on my trusty Ashford wheel. (My Norwegian Grandma's century old wheel that came from Norway with her in the early 1900's has been retired for a few years now - she became a little too fragile and deserved to be able to watch over my work with dignity.)
Because the yarn is handspun, there will be slight differences throughout - that’s the beauty of handmade.
Hand wash and lay flat to dry - it will felt!
My kitties aren't allowed to smoke or play in my fibers. Once in a while, though, a stray hair will try to find it's way into whatever I'm working on. So, if you're sensitive to the little furry creatures, please be aware of this beforehand.
