Moss People Lockspun Handspun Textured Art Yarn. AR0121TAU. CVM and Longwool Locks spun and Angora Plyed Boho Art Yarn.
Moss People are the Guardians of the trees. Forest paths, moss covered stones and gentle breezes dancing through the woods. Moss covered velvety pathways winding through the woods. Quiet stillness, a bird chirps, a rustle of leaves as a slight breeze moves through… the moss people are always about, here and there. It is rare to catch a glimpse of any forest folk…. a wood woman or moss people melting into the trees….rare and very special indeed.

Handspun Dyed CVM locks and Longwool locks in various shades of green, olive green, browns with a little yellow and white. Spiral plyed with little locks and curls popping out here and there for even more texture. Beautiful curls and butter softness combine to make this one of my favorite yarns to spin and ply. The single is plyed with a 2 ply fine lace weight hand dyed Angora Yarn.
The dominant color through out the yarn is green in various shades. If you want even more texture and color in your projects, you will want to get this to add to your collection.
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.
Recommended size 17 knitting needle and size Q crochet hook for a more open flowing stitch and drape. Recommended wider sett to allow the yarn to shine, 4 or 5 dpi would be very interesting for this yarn. 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.
