Handspun Natural colored BFL locks with Black and White BFL combed top in various shades black, gray and white. Spiral plyed with a 2 ply Silk Fine Laceweight Thread Yarn. The 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. If you want even more texture and luxury in your projects, you will want to get this to add to your collection.
It would 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. For Wearable Weaving, I recommend a wider sett to allow the yarn to shine. 4 or 5 dpi would be very interesting for this yarn.
I included a photo of a recent wall hanging using this yarn throughout and for fringe. Wall hanging is approx 16 x 18 inches for size reference. With generous use in fringe and weaving, I used approx +/- 50 yds of White Sands.
It is a textured art yarn that is very workable on a set of needles for knitting and on hooks for crochet. 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.
