Our laceweight Spindle is a gorgeous mix of 80% merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% mulberry silk. Made in County Donegal, it embodies that region's long fiber-making history, reminiscent of the fine strands spun by hand for centuries in local cottages. With its small bits (or “burrs”) of fiber, Spindle is an exquisite twist on Irish tweed yarn, with a rustic look, but a softer hand than strictly traditional versions. Spindle conjures nature with its down-to-earth heartiness but also evokes elegance with its light touch and single-ply simplicity. It’s available in seventeen beautiful colors, each recalling the yarn's origin, from the green hills of Ireland to the bright flowers in the meadow, from the woodpile outside the cottage to the embers of the hearth within. A cousin of our worsted-weight Hedgerow, Spindle’s laceweight beauty is a quiet roar, and we love if for lace shawls, lovely cowls, and stunning scarves!

Spindle's merino wool meets the International Wool Textile Organization's standards on Wool Sheep Welfare and is certified, to ensure the quality and traceability of the fiber. It is 80% sourced from Australia and the rest comes from New Zealand, South Africa, and Europe. The mill in Ireland avidly modernizes their equipment for more energy efficiency and also has its own waste water treatment plant that is monitored to comply with the local Environmental Protection Agency. lt adheres to European regulations that protect human health and the environment from harmful chemicals, and they also send their wool waste to be recycled. We love this mill!

PLEASE NOTE Saturated colors may cross-stain during blocking, so if you're knitting them with lighter colors, we recommend testing a swatch first. If there's bleeding, consider fixing the dye before you begin. Click here for our tutorial on re-fixing dye!

PLEASE ALSO NOTE Because this is a fine single-ply yarn, we recommend pulling gently and avoiding a tight tension as you knit. If you plan to wind your skein into a ball with a ball winder, go slowly to avoid breaks.
