This is a really stunning bulky, coiled art yarn, handspun from a blend of Bluefaced Leicester wool and tussah silk.

To create this yarn I corespun some hand dyed Bluefaced Leicester wool and tussah silk blend roving in varying thickness around a laceweight linen yarn. I then coil plied this around more linen yarn to create with a hand dyed alpaca to create a bulky yweight coiled art yarn.

The colours and texture are reminiscent of spring mimosa and cherry blossoms.

This yarn is approx. 55g in weight and 6m in length – 2-4WPI so approx. heavy bulky weight overall.

(The ruler in the photos is an imperial measurement (inches) ruler.)

This yarn is lovely and soft and light and would be great incorporated into freeform knitting, or in tapestry, weaving or other textile or fibre art projects. Use your imagination – make a wall hanging, combine with some strings of beads to create a textile necklace – the possibilities are endless!

Cool handwash only unless aiming to felt.

Wharfedale Woolworks began in 2010, when I took redundancy from ma dull office job and opened an online shop, originally offering hand-dyed yarns and fibres. After completing a Masters degree and taking on a new job I no longer had time to dye on a regular basis, so took a break for a couple of years. This year, after reducing working hours for a better work-life balance I am now re-opening and offering hand dyed yarns, handspun art yarns, prepared fibres in different formats for spinning and also some luxury hand knits and woven textile wall hangings.

I am autistic and suffer from fibromyalgia and depression.  I’m also awaiting assessment for ADHD, so all of my fibre related activities are highly therapeutic and restorative. I take great pride in my work and I value my time, so items are priced to account fairly for this. I hope you gain as much enjoyment from my products as I did from their creation.
