Hand Dyed Yarn handspun Mink "Carpe that Diem"


$26.00

  • Details
    This hand-spun 100% natural mink 2-ply yarn is hand painted deep warm tones that really glow- because of the intensity of the colors combined with the darker base. These are hand dyed over the natural taupey-brown of the undyed mink.

    This luxurious yarn is extremely soft, and has a very distinct "halo" similar to angora. it gets softer with handling as well. It has a lighter feel and a different hand from cashmere, is equally as soft as cashmere, is extremely warm and insulating, and is completely ethical--this does not hurt the animal when it is harvested.

    The mink is combed (same as an angora bunny) and the undercoat is what makes up this light worsted weight hand-spun yarn.
    The super light softness is nice used in a scarf or shawl as it insulates without weight, and openwork really shows off the beauty of this yarn as it has lovely hand-made irregularities.

    If you've never worked with mink, i'll try to describe it here. It is very soft like baby camel, or kid mohair, but fluffs out very much like mohair..but without the scratchiness of adult mohair.

    I use professional environmentally-friendly color-fast dyes.
