A balanced 3 ply, made with 50% Scrap Yarn and 50% silk cocoon stripping. Plied and spun on my beloved Ashford Spinning Wheel.

Yarn Specifications:

18yards, 3 ply worsted weight (9wpi), 130 g


This skein is 130g in weight. It's made from waste yarn ends, from other parts of my practice, which was carded with silk cocoon strippings.

The ultimate way to repurpose yarn ends! These scrap ends and broken down into fibre then hand carded with silk. Silk strippings are soft and slightly gummy which helps to blend even the smallest scrap fibres. It blends well with the ends to create a soft but textured yarn. Perfect for any textile art. From crochet, to knit, to weave.

All yarns are finished, washed and the twist is set before sent out. They are packaged in plantable paper yarn band, remove all tape and information stickers before planting.
