Golden Lemon Lockspun Handspun Textured Art Yarn. AR0118TAU. Lockspun Angora Plyed Boho Art Yarn.
The inspiration of this yarn was a giveaway in honor of Honey bees and beekeepers. It reminded me of the Golden Lemon and Honey Colors that you see with various natural honey.
I handspun Dyed Longwool locks and lockspun them into a Single. The single is plyed with a 2 ply fine pale pink Angora Yarn. The dominant color through out the yarn is honey and gold with small bits of greens in various shades. This represents the bees and their honey. It will go well with the Wild Flower Art Yarn if you want even more texture and color in your projects.

This yarn has so much texture and color. It is a textured art yarn that is very workable on a set of needles for knitting and hooks for crochet. It would also be wonderful for use in textured weaving. I can picture this woven into a shawl, scarf or a wall hanging. Use it as the main yarn in your piece or as an edging or accent for effect.
Hat shows how combining various colors makes such an interesting piece. Hat body is made with Golden Lemon and trim/fringe is Mixed Berries and Wild Flower.
Recommended size 17 knitting needle and size Q crochet hook for a more open flowing stitch and drape. The yarn has been set in a hot wash and hung unweighted to dry. Hand wash cold with (LIKE) similar colors. Hang or lay flat to dry.
