Lady Slipper - 2-ply Handspun Cormo Yarn - 340 yds.
'Lady Slipper' started life as 4 oz. of hand-dyed, Illinois raised, Cormo top spun to a loose 2-ply, slightly thick and thin, sometimes fingering weight and sometimes heavy worsted, for 340 yds. of soft, cushy loveliness. It was an absolute delight to spin - another one of my favorites (but, I can't keep them all, can I?).
Use it for just about anything - cowls, hats, scarves.....
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.
