Olive Plum - 100% British Hand Spun Yarn



This yarn started life as natural British Blue Faced Leicester fibres which were dyed by hand by me in soft purples and muted greens. These fibres were then lovingly and painstakingly hand spun on a spinning wheel. It consists of 2 singles which have been plied for a balanced 2ply yarn.

There is approx. 133 meters of yarn. Price works out to be just under 12p a meter!

With 8/9 WPI, this is a Worsted/Medium weight yarn. I would recommend 4.5mm - 5.5mm needles or a 5.5mm - 6.5mm hook for this yarn. Be sure to only hand wash in lukewarm water and dry flat. Do not scrub the yarn on wash in hot water - this will felt it! (Unless, you want that to happen of course :) )

The yarn is currently in a skein and will be sent to you in a ball at no additional cost. If you would rather have it sent to you as a skein just let me know in the 'Message to Seller' box at the order page :)

This yarn is ready to ship now! Although i could dye British Blue Faced Leicester fibres in similar colours again, due to the nature of this yarn being hand dyed and hand spun means that it will be impossible to replicate the exact same colour and colour changes again. Apart from the 13 meter sampler skein that was left over from one of the singles (and also available in this shop), this yarn is unique and one of a kind.
