Here's where you'll find handspun yarns for any project. Skeins are listed individually, but if you want a certain amount or colorway for a particular project (including sweater lots), please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss a custom order.

 

Singles

Singles yarns are all spun with a soft twist, to keep the yarn as close to balanced as possible. After spinning, the skeins are fulled - immersed in hot and cold water repeatedly to get the fibers to start to felt to each other to give the yarn more stability and structure. These yarns are great for soft cozy cowls and hats, but won't do so well in items that need to holdup to more wear, like socks or mittens. 

 

2-ply yarns

These yarns are great for loads of projects, including lace and colorwork. Depending on the fiber base, these yarns can make fantastic socks and mittens, as well as hats, cowls, shawls, and anything else.

 

Please see individual item descriptions below for more information about particular skeins. I've given grist and a recommended needle size as a starting point only - please swatch with your chosen needles to make sure you get a fabric you like!
