A NOTE ON OUR HANDSPUN YARN: Handspun is, by its very nature, not as consistent in dimension as commercially spun products and that is part of its beauty. Each batch of yarn is spun from a single fleece; this means it is a one-off, unique to that sheep and that year; please make sure you order all you need for your project as we cannot replicate a batch. Each skein will be approximately 85g, the exact weight will vary slightly per skein due to the handspinning process. Although the yarn weight given is as close as we can make it, we recommend you start with a tension square to assess the weight and needle size you need for your chosen project.
