This is a really stunning art yarn with randomly spaced coils, gotland locks and cotswold locks throughout. it also contains wool nepps for even more texture and some sparkly Angelina fibre.

I created this yarn from some mini batts I had blended on my drum carder using 5 different blue and green shades of merino wool, some bamboo rayon, some hand dyed Gotland locks, some wool nepps and some sparkly Angelina fibre. I spun them into a textured thick and thin yarn, incorporating some short to medium length Cotswold locks as I went along, then coiled this round a hand dyed merino and silk laceweight yarn.

This yarn is approx. 100g in weight, 25m in length and 4-5 WPI so approx. super bulky overall. (The ruler in the photos is an imperial measurement (inches)

This yarn would be great incorporated freeform knitting, tapestry or weaving projects. Alternatively use your imagination – make a wall hanging or 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.
