Jennie Howes' Hand-spun Singles Yarn

Jennie Howes' Hand-spun Singles Yarn

from 16.00

An enticing collection of hand-spun yarns by Jennie Howes of Skybluepink Designs. Each hank is hand-spun in Scotland by Jennie on an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel in front of a roaring fire or in the garden.

All the yarns featured here are spun from British wool. They are 'singles', i.e. 1-ply. Natural singles and dyed 2ply yarns are listed as separate products.  Some yarns also contain other fibres such as Tussah silk or bamboo.

Each hank has its own character but in some colour-ways I have more than one hank available. Where this is the case I have allocated each hank a number. When ordering, please note the differences in weight and length between the numbered hanks.
