Jeweled Earth Handspun Yarn
Jeweled Earth was spun by Sand from a lovely 85% Polwarth Wool and 15% Tussah Silk blend fiber dyed by the wonderful folks at Redfish Dyeworks. Sand spindle spun the singles for loft and softness, and then created 3 ply structure on a spinning wheel. The hand is so soft and the silk shines in the fiber blend! This heavy worsted weight yarn would make an incredible hat or cowl, full of softness, durability, and luster! The rich tones are so delightful!
