Handspun Yarn from Handmade By Stefanie!

My friend Stefanie is, among many other kick-ass things, an amazing spinner. Today I got to look through her bin of handspun yarn while drinking home-brewed beer... not a bad Thursday, let me tell you!

Stefanie has generously offered up some of her beautiful handspun yarn as incentives for our Kickstarter! Check them out below. Can you believe it?? They're so gorgeous.

  • One skein of Chunky weight Blue/Gold: 75% BFL + Organic Polwarth + 25% Mulberry Silk, 128 yards, opposing ply (kinky texture!)
  • One skein of Aran weight Pinks/Mauves: Mystery fiber, super soft and lovely, 95 yards.
  • Both are so gorgeous it hurts
  • $75
