Purple Passion Lockspun Boho Handspun Textured Art Yarn AR0114TAU. Lockspun Angora Plyed Boho Art Yarn.
This is a Leicester Long Wool Lockspun Art yarn thread plyed with very fine lace weight pink Angora yarn.
I handspun Dyed Leicester Long Wool Locks into a Single and plyed with a 2 ply fine baby pink Angora Yarn. I love how the colors and texture play so much together. The main color is purple. There are sections where dark and light purple and pink peek through. The colors blend and harmonize so perfectly while still having a varied depth of shade.

This yarn has so much texture and color. It is soft and squishy and a yarn that I would wear next to skin. 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. In rigid heddle weaving, my preferred dent for this yarn is 5 dpi. Use 5 dpi for weaving for a looser sett with an open drape with movement.
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.
