Midnight Desire - Handspun Yarn

Here's the latest handspun yarn to come off the spinning wheel. It is Midnight Desire, a 100% Corriedale wool roving that I purchased from CJ Kopec Creations as part of her Ravelry April Spin-A-Long.

155 yards and 3.5 ounces. This is a DK weight yarn at 14 wpi. Use 5-6 needle or F hook.

This yarn has been properly treated to set the twist.

Suitable for knitting, crocheting, felting or whatever your creativity dreams up!

It was easy to spin but a little coarser than I like in fibers. It would make a great felting yarn - knit or crochet it up into a hat or bowl, etc. and felt it. Would make a great hat or mittens. Love the color on this one though. Very rich, deep dark exotic looking color. Available for sale in my Etsy store.
