I spun this yarn from two of my Kristin Lavransdatter art batts. It's a really interesting construction called a Hawser yarn. I spun 4 different plies and then plied two plies together but in the same direction I spun them, which is very unusual. I did the same thing with the other two plies, and then I spun the two 2-ply yarns together in the opposite direction.
The result is a very strong and very stretchy yarn that's great for hat brims, sweater cuffs, and anything that needs some extra stretch.
The yarn is made of merino wool, mulberry silk, baby alpaca, and a bit of sparkly angelina.
The last photo shows the art batts I used. The art batts are also available in my shop.

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.
