Sorry, this product is out of stock. Please check back soon.

I spun this gorgeous ooak art yarn from a batt created by the amazing fiber artist Jazzturtle (who has a shop on Etsy of the same name).

She describes the 'Santa Monica Summer Sunset' batt fiber as a "beautiful sunrise colors of corals, pinks, fuchsias and yellows, with a hint of orange".

She used fluffy merino top, squooshy targhee fleece, soft corridale fleece, curly kid mohair locks and shiny bamboo. For the black shadows she swirled in some soft black merino, shiny black bamboo and a touch of black shimmery firestar. She added pink and orange sari silk for texture and LOTS of sparkle with firestar, and gold and shades of pink angelina.

Thats why I could spin it up into such a delicious art yarn!

It is a corespun yarn. Corespinning is a more intensive spinning technique that wraps the fiber around a core (in this case a black laceweight wool yarn), between a 60 and 90 degree angle. It creates a thick and thin single, that looks quite different than a traditional single. It produces a very warm, light and fluffy yarn.
