MURDER MYSTERY Handspun Super-Bulky Yarn

Regular price $28.00

Who doesn't love a good murder mystery? Murder Mystery is a dramatic colorway made of black, dark red, and white. The colors may be dramatic, but the fibers are soft luxury fibers. There's merino, organic polwarth, and bamboo in about equal quantities along with some very soft mulberry silk and a smidge of sparkly firestar.

This is just barely in the super bulky range at 6 wraps per inch. It would make a wonderful small project by itself or part of a larger project if you prefer. It would be great as part of a saori weaving creation.

I think it would be fun to combine the handspun and the commercially spun versions of Murder Mystery.

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!
