Care Bear Countdown Handspun Yarn – Adventures In Plying Part 5


Handmade (Handspun)


Length: 144 Yards; Yarn weight: Worsted


Primary fiber: targhee wool, alpaca

Out of stock


This yarn can be described as colorful & soft in feel, with glints of sparkle. To begin creating this yarn I plied grey alpaca together as a two ply (alpaca was processed by myself from raw: picked, washed, dyed grey, combed and blended with sparkly angelina fibers before spinning). Then this 2-ply was re-spun in the opposite direction to a vibrant multi-colored targhee (sheep wool) top that I also hand-dyed several colors. The resulting yarn is a variation of a crepe yarn, since 2 plies are wrapping around one. It’s one of my fave ways to ply yarn, giving it lots of interest and fun to the design.

3ply; 3.3oz/96gr; approx. 144 yards; approx. 9 wpi

Handspun on my Lendrum & plied on my SpinOlution wheel.
