Summer Forest Bulky Handspun Textured Yarn. AR0104TAU. Lockspun Angora Plyed Textured Art Yarn.
I really enjoyed spinning this yarn. I enjoyed watching it dry. A photo of this yarn is now my phone wallpaper. I smile with pleasure every time I open my phone these days. I really love how it came out. The colors blend and pop and just harmonize so perfectly.
I handspun Dyed Long Wool Locks into a Single and plyed with a 2 ply fine baby blue Angora Yarn. I love how the colors and texture play so much together. The dominant color through out the yarn is green in various shades. There are pops of pink, purple, blue and small bits of yellow and orange.

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.
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.
