SEVILLA

Mix of bright yellow and red colours reminiscent of the drizzling hot Spanish city of Sevilla.

£24.99 the lot of 3 skeins.

To benefit from the 10% discount (excl. postage), email me directly (contact.lestitch@gmail.com).

Three small skeins of luxury and soft fine yarn. I first dyed the tops which I then carded and spun smoothly using a wheel. The spun is slightly uneven making it a novelty yarn that surely will be the star of the your yarn basket. The resulting yarn is a fine 2-ply yarn.

Each skein is unique and made from different blends of wool:
- the smallest skein is made from a blend of mohair (red colour) and wool (yellow): 9 metres (9 yards) = 5 grammes
- the mostly yellow skein is made mixing wool and two-threaded cotton: 56 m (61 y) = 16 grammes
- the mostly red skein is made from corriedale wool: 33 m (36 y) = 19 grammes

These would be perfect to use as an accent yarn as they are quite small. The wool is a fine 2-ply type, requiring needles sized 2 or 3mm

Handwash only at room temperature with a mild detergent, otherwise the fibre will felt.

TUTTI FRUTTI

These are all the colours of the rainbow in one skein! Multicoloured handdyed yarn handspun by myself using a drop spindle.

£11.99 the skein.

A unique small skein of luxury and soft merino yarn. The tops were first dyed, which I then spun smoothly into yarn using my spindle. This is the traditional way of spinning yarn, which dates back from Antiquity. The spun of the fibre is uneven making it a novelty yarn that surely will be the star of the your yarn basket.



The skein is made from 100% merino tops carded together to create this multi-coloured effect. It is a 2-ply yarn which tends to be on the chunky side.

27 grammes = about 32 metres (equivalent to about 35 yards).

These would be perfect to use as an accent yarn as the skein is quite mini.
