Wensleydale Lockspun/Thread Plyed 2oz Skein
This is a delightful small skein I spun up from the wee and tiny curls of a Wensleydale lamb. the tips are sun kissed on a chocolate base.
Just 2 oz, enough to add a brim for a knitted winter hat or add texture and dimension to a woven shawl or scarf or art piece.
Yes, you can spin wire! I used a thin floral wire as the core for these unique and fun “poseable” yarns.
They make great tendrils for flowers, pumpkins, roots and rootlets for trees. Use as a ribbon for presents or slip around your wrist and wear as a bracelet. You could even coil into a mini-basket. This yarn can be bent, coiled and wrapped in any shape BUT remember that if you sharply bend the wire in one place over and over, it will work harden and break.
Please be aware that the wool is wrapped about the wire and NOT glued in place so if you are going to cut the yarn (do not use your nice scissors) carefully bed the new tips tightly over or put a drop of super glue at the tip to keep the wool from unwinding.
I have grouped several colors and textures into each grouping. You will get at least 22 feet between the three coils. Pictures will change as Items sell and I add more. Enjoy!
Shenandoah Valley Art Yarn, 4.5 oz.
The Shenandoah Valley holds a special place in our hearts and this yarn was designed with the warm and comforting feeling one gets while driving though The Valley.
I used soft fibers: Suri alpaca, 16 micron merino, Shetland and kid mohair, for this art yarn. It is lock spun and then thread plyed with coils here and there. It weighs 4.5 oz and is 42 yards of feather pillow comfort.
It would be lovely incorporated in a weaving of loosely knit into a shawl. You could even just wear it around your neck!
Teeswater Lockspun Yarn
Beautiful, white Texas Teeswater locks have been lockspun into a lovely single and the plyed with a creamy white cotton crochet thread.
There are 60 yards and 9 oz of curly deliciousness.
This art yarn can be used for weaving, dying, knitting or crocheting. It is soft but not next to skin soft and has a lovely drape.
