It has been a while since I have posted some of my hand spun yarns. Most of my yarn is made with wool straight from the farmer. I scald (wash) the wool, dye the wool if I choose to, card or comb the wool, and spin the wool. It takes a lot of labor to make hand-spun yarn. Most of my yarn is lumpy bumpy and has added silk, or sparkle. This is called art yarn. I have hooks at home that I hang the yarn on. They are displayed like pieces of art.
