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. Hand-dyed in rich shades of forest green after spinning - the rayon/bamboo wrap resists the wool dyes, creating a high-contrast effect.
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 is between 4.7-5.1oz and 100-122 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.
