This yarn was designed to fit a colorful and lively personality of a homesteader – someone who always has things to do outside and needs a warm hat, but simple and quick hand made hat. This yarn does just that – made 94 % from wool and 6 % from silk noil, it ticks not only the box of “warm”, but also looks amazing and fun – perfect to knit a quick hat, no fancy patterns required.
The recycled wool used for this yarn comes from various felting, spinning and knitting projects in a form of failed felting, scrap wool chunks, felted dye wool pieces, etc. Due to recycled and hand dyed nature of some of the yarn ingredients, it is impossible to reproduce same colors and textures that are found in this yarn, thus making it a truly unique, hand spun piece of art.
This yarn spun as a single, which means that it is less sturdy than plied yarn, therefore it is not recommended to use it for socks or other knits that are meant to be heavier duty.
This yarn is a part of Homesteader’s Hat Yarn collection therefore can be mixed and matched with other collection items.

Hand spun yarn has a tendency to felt a little when washed. This means, that whatever you make from it, might shrink a little and the texture will be slightly different after washing.
To avoid felting and/or damage to the item made using this yarn, please hand wash in a 30 degree water with a detergent suitable for wool. Do not wring. Dry flat.
