This handspun yarn is sourced from a rescue farm in Milo, IA. It's from a mix between Cormo/CVM sheep. It's not as soft as common commercial wools, but it is still soft enough for a hat, mittens, small or for creating needle felted things (ex. felted mice or slippers). Wonkier "art" yarns are good for tapestry or textured rugs. These are hand dyed as well with either food coloring or natural color from... food! *Haha. No pun intended.
The mini kits come in varying lengths, similar thickness, and similar weights so each kit will be priced a different way. Each kit should be enough to finish a small project.
Some things to note: since I do not use mordants or acid dyes at this time, the colors will fade at some point (we're looking at in less than 5 years). Also, there may or may not be vegetable matter. Not every fleece goes to the mill and some mills don't process as well, so there may be some vegetable matter or vm. I do my best to pick them before/during/after spinning and finishing the yarn and before shipping them out. And when there's a considerable amount, it takes way more time for me to spin and clean.
I spin with an Electric Eel Wheel Nano 1.1. The limitation in capacity makes for slow replenishing of stock. But this may change in the future. I measure my yarns with a yard counter instead of a niddy noddy or McMorran Scale. Each skein will have an approximate wraps per inch (wpi).
No single handspun yarn will look exactly the same as the next. So I label each skein with an approximate length, thickness, and weight. There is a set range that allows me to create an average price point. In case there are huge skews/deviations from that range, there will be an added discount (in dollar form) for that specific skein or set.
