Sassy Singles Merino Weaving Yarn
Handspun yarn is a unique and luxurious treat for any fibre lover (and often for those that don't know a thing about yarn, too).
I created these single ply 100% merino yarns in every colour of the rainbow. They are deliciously thick and thin and perfect for all your weaving projects. So perfect, in fact, I'm calling them 'weaving yarn'. You'll see why as soon as you pick up a skein and start your next wall hanging. They create the perfect blend of texture and ease. These yarns will take your weaving to the next level!
These skeins are 75 yards of single ply 100% merino yarn from happy sheep in New Zealand, handspun in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
My yarns are one of a kind and made in small quantities. If you require more of a yarn you like, please ask! Or if there is a colour you'd like but don't see here, let me know. I do custom orders.
About my yarn-making process:
I create all my own handspun yarns on a Majacraft Aura spinning wheel in my home and studio in Ottawa, which is pet-friendly and smoke-free (of course ... do we even have to say that anymore?).
My yarns go through a number of processes before they appear here for sale:
I choose the fibres or fleece or fabrics that I want to create a yarn out of;
I prepare the fibres/fleece/fabric for spinning by combing or carding them;
I sit down at my spinning wheel to create my first ply yarn, which is sometimes as far as I go ... but more often ... I twist it back in the other direction with another yarn or thread (which is called 'plying');
I remove it from the bobbin;
I wash it;
I hang it to dry;
I measure it;
I photograph it;
I create a listing for it and then ...
You fall in love with it and buy it for your next amazing project!
