SAILING IN THE CARIBBEAN Super-Bulky Thick-and-Thin Handspun Art Yarn

Regular price $29.00

Quantity Available: 1
    Imagine the breeze blowing through your hair on a sunny day as you sail in the blue blue Caribbean Sea. That was the inspiration for this yarn.
    Sailing in the Caribbean is a really fun super-bulky yarn I spun with extreme thick and thin sections. This would make a fabulous hat or open-work cowl!
    I made this from my art batts of the same name. It contains merino wool, bamboo, mulberry silk, and some sparkly angelina, and the colors are blue with teal, lavender, and white.

        PROCESS AND PACKAGING
        Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!
         
        HANK OR CAKE
        Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
         
        MY GIFT TO YOU
        As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
