FANGORN FOREST Thick and Thin Worsted-Weight Handspun Yarn

Regular price $34.00

For the last few months, one of my most popular art batts has been in this Fangorn Forest colorway. I finally decided I needed to spin it up myself, and I can see why so many people love it! It feels rich and woodsy with so much texture--just like Fangorn Forest in The Lord of the Rings.

The predominant color is forest green, but there's also a lot of rich chocolate brown as well as gold, bronze, cream, and spring green. The majority of fibers are quite soft, including merino, alpaca, honey tussah silk, yak down, and bamboo. There are also kid mohair locks and teeswater locks. I would estimate the teeswater locks to be close to 30 micron as opposed to 21 for the merino, but that's just an educated guess.

Like I've mentioned before, it always makes me happy when I manage to come up with a colorway that would be good for men since I don't all that often, but this one definitely qualifies.

The last photo shows the art batts, which I have for sale in the art batt section of my shop.

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.

Happy fiber artistry!
