Handspun Hand-dyed Vegan Rayon 2-ply Yarn by Vermont Homespun
Soft and silky with a beautiful sheen, this handspun yarn is made from natural plant fibers. It is an animal-friendly, cruelty-free vegan rayon.
This is a 64 gram skein (2.25 ounces). There are about 84 yards (77 meters) of double-ply yarn. The yarn size is Medium, it is a worsted weight, with 12 WPI. The knitting gauge is 4 to 5 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch on needle sizes #7 to #9 (ymmv). This yarn is lightweight with a soft, flowing drape.
The colors used to hand-dye this yarn were magenta, silver, and slate blue. When painted onto the fiber, the colors combine to create new shades, so you will see pinks, violets, teal, etc.
Rayon has a reputation of being difficult to wash. I have not had any trouble with machine washing my handspun rayon after it has been knitted. I have machine washed in warm water and cold rinse, then machine dried without problem, only slight shrinkage.
If you prefer, I would be happy to wind this skein into a center-pull ball (no extra charge!), just leave a note at check-out.
