Hummingbird Dance 2 Handspun Yarn
This lovely Merino/Silk Blend hand dyed by the fabulous Wonderland Dyeworks was woolen spun by Sand into a beautiful, soft, lofty, lace weight yarn, perfect for a cozy cowl, shawl, scarf, or delightful gloves of any type. The colours are luscious with spots of silky shine. The woolen spun nature of this yarn makes it incredibly soft and delicate; it will want a bigger needle or hook to work in a more open manner as the woolen singles open out creating that lovely squishiness! The 2 ply structure will make glorious lace patterning!
