Gorgeous and functional, chunky hand-dyed and hand-spun art-yarn skeins ready for your next project! Perfect for use in knitting, crochet, weaving, or other fiber arts. Undyed, ready for your own creative spin or beautiful on its own in a natural, creamy white.
Handspun out of soft and luxurious Polwarth wool with a double-wrap of silky rayon, producing a singles yarn with lots of fun texture. Powlarth is next-to-skin soft, and although it is a singles yarn, the rayon wrap provides stability so that it is much stronger and more resilient than a typical softly-spun bulky single.
Each skein averages 4.5-5+oz and 90-120 yards, 5-6 WPI (wraps-per-inch). This yarn can be knit at a variety of gauges depending on your project, and a single skein is plenty to make a beautiful hat, cowl, or other accessory.
Classy Squid Fiber Co. yarns are designed to provide a truly delightful crafting experience. My Polwarth & Falkland wools are sourced from the Falkland Islands, UK, where the sheep are raised free of pesticides & chemicals in a pristine environment. Fibers are hand-dyed by me, Amanda, in my smoke-free, pet-free studio using professional grade acid dyes. I do my utmost to run my dyeing studio in an environmentally-friendly manner.
To care for your creations and avoid felting, hand-wash your items in warm (not hot) water with a mild wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak, without agitation, and allow to air-dry.
