Sunset Hand-Spun Bulky Targhee Yarn


Only 1 piece in stock!

Hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn, made right here in the studio! Each of my bulky yarns is made from extra squishy roving which I hand-dye one at a time using eco-friendly dyes (which means that each yarn turns out differently.) I then hand-spin the fiber on my spinning wheel.

  • FIBER: Targhee Wool -- super squishy and soft
  • WEIGHT: Extra Bulky
  • YARDS: Appx. 70
  • COLORWAY: Purple, orange, pink
  • CARE: Handwash cold
  • Dyed and spun by hand (with a traditional spinning wheel!)

What can you make with a skein of this bulky, squishy yarn? This yarn is perfect as an accent in super chunky sweaters, perfect for a hat (you might be able to get a full hat out of it depending on the pattern or your knitting, otherwise I recommend using it in combination with a solid commercial yarn and doing stripes!), a chunky cowl mixed with commercial yarn, mittens or an ear warmer. 

Why does my hand-spun yarn come in different/random yardage? Because spinning is not exact and I aim for a "chunky" and bulky spin so I end up which means I end up with different yardage as a result. It can also just depend on how the fiber itself was processed. Each hand-spun yarn starts with approximately 4 ounces of fiber, but can end up anywhere from 40-70 yards of yarn. 40 yards will mean it's a little thicker/chunkier, 70 will mean it's a little longer but less chunky but the fiber involved is the same.
