Handspun Art Yarn, Summer Storm
This listing is for one 3.5-ounce skein of a beautiful hand-dyed bluefaced leicester wool yarn in soft shades of green, blue, purple, and white -- reminds me of the color of the sky during a summer storm! I use only chemical-free food grade dyes so that your fiber is not only safe, but is undamaged by harsh chemicals -- no phosphates, copper, or harsh mordants. Once dyed, the fiber is washed several times in hot water with all natural soap and air dried. The resulting yarn is non-toxic, soft shades of bright sky, thunderclouds, rain, and that angry purple color the sky sometimes turns.
This BFL wool is unbelievably soft -- comparable to merino! This beautiful yarn is handspun in the "thick and thin" style in a 2-ply yarn. Each skein is 3.5 ounces and measures approximately 25 yards and is a MEGA super bulky weight at 1-4 WPI. Use extra large knitting needles (size US 13+) or crochet hook (US size Q+) to make a unique and beautiful project! Also makes wonderful locks for doll hair, dreadlocks, or wigs. The 4th photo shows the variation in thickness of the yarn and compares it to the thickness of a standard pencil.
This yarn has been stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment.
Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
