Handspun art yarn thread-plied with beads and sequins 80g – black, purples, sparkle

£21.00   / 80g skein


This beautiful skein was hand spun by Suzie and is non-repeatable.

The yarn was created by plying together a strand of single spun from one of Spin City‘s amazing art batts in mixed fibres, with a strong black cotton thread strung with glass beads, faux pearls and sequins.

The thread-plied construction gives the yarn a tactile, wavy texture and bouncy feel. It could be knitted at a range of tensions for different effects.

The colours range from deep purples to soft pastel pinks and blues, with some sparking effect fibres. The beads and other add-ins make this a very special skein. It would look incredible combined with a dark-coloured commercial yarn.

Hand spun yarn has some variation in thickness throughout the skein and we recommended you swatch to find the right tension for your project.
