Hand Spun Art Yarn - Natual Brown Lock Spun Merino with Gradient Silk

I spun this skein directly from soft natural colored merino locks and plied it with some gradient dyed silk that I made some time before. Merino locks come from a beautiful chocolate colored merino fleece that I purchased a few months ago. I gently washed it, and took only the softest, cleanest locks to spin without carding them first.


Love these soft sun bleached tips that pop here and there in this yarn! 

Silk that I used for plying change from golden beige color to turquoise, then to brown with nice and long sections of each. This yarn works great for plying, shiny, strong, and soft!

This will knit up to something colorful and textural - love!
