Natural, organic hand spun art yarn
This stunning art yarn was made from 6 different breeds, vintage threads and natural plant fibers.
Made from Manx Loaghtan, merino, grey and fawn alpaca, mohair, jacobs and wensleydale fleeces - with most collected by myself from local farms. The Manx fleeces were gathered from an RSPB Suffolk nature reserve, the Wensleydale, Alpaca fibre from little farms across Suffolk. I got to meet the gorgeous animals and give them a little pet on the head before taking away their pretty fleeces!
I blended these wool fibers with natural plant fibres such as tencel (made from tree plup) and soya silk (made from soya beans!)
As I spun the yarn, I wrapped vintage threads of lurex and silk around the yarn to form lovely swirls of detail. I also added extra locks for little pops of texture.
