Biotayarns Handspun yarn in "Blue Marble" colorway - wool/mohair/cotton blend - 470 yards - knit, weave, crochet
This is a large, continuous, 5 ounce, 470 yard skein of lofty, woolen spun yarn!
A magically blue colorway comes to life as a reminiscence of blue/gray skies in the spring.
1 ply is 60% Bluefaced leicester & Wensleydale wools blended with 40% mohair, carded and handspun
and the other ply is a commercial fine 2 ply cotton yarn.
Ultimately it is a fingering weight yarn - perfect for weaving or other handwork.
The high luster wool & mohair fibers are raised at Dakota Carding & Wool Farm.
These local fibers are washed, dyed, carded & hand spun by biotayarns, at my studio on the prairie of South Dakota where I watch the spring sky unfold its glory everyday. In the spring we also watch the sky for signs of rain showers and thunderstorms. It is a beautiful and wide open space.
I plied the singles hand spun yarn with a commercial cotton yarn (light blue gray)
This yarn is hand washable.
Please remember that colors may appear different on your monitor than in real life. Every effort has been made to convey the colors in my photos as the yarn appears to me in person. Photos are taken outdoors in daylight without any color effects.
I dye yarn/fiber using professional acid dyes. This wool/yarn was rinsed after dyeing. Hand dyed yarns might bleed color slightly during their first washing.
Thank you for looking.
