New Yarns

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.
Example of a fleece I purchase.
