From shawls to sweaters to throws, this yarn can't be beat for softness and sheer touch-ability. With solids, heathers, and beautiful self-striping 'painterly' colors, Homespun® comes in gorgeous shades you'll love. Please note that some colors have long, slow color variations that cause them to subtly stripe. This is deliberate and adds to the beauty of the finished garment; such yarns are designated as our 'painterly' colors.
I have used this yarn to make a shoulder wrap. I have made many of these with this yarn and with the similar Homespun New which has been discontinued. Depending on hook size and experience level it may not be easy to use yarn. Does not frog easily. That is the only reasons I gave it 4 stars.
I ordered three skeins of Homespun Tudor to make a baby blanket. All went well with the first two, but as I started to continue with the third, it turned out to have an entirely different pink and none of the blue in the other two.
I work in a cool building and needed a sweater, so I made a caplet from Homespun Hepplewhite white yarn. My friends liked the look and warmth so much I'm making 2 more for them, and I've blended it with other yarns to give them a boho look. Very versatile, warm and cozy yarn. Sorry, the photo very dark.
I have avoided using this yarn because it has been hard to work with in the past. I used a bigger hook size, and voilà, it’s super easy to stitch! I love how soft it feels and how it worked up my project quickly and beautifully. The result: a soft, warm, and cozy afghan
Love, love, love it! Easy to work with using the suggested hook or near that size. The finished product can go in both the washer and dryer!! I make shawls and lap blankets.Usually they are distributed to the sick and elderly. And, the finished product is soooo cuddly warm! I enjoy the "long, slow color variations that cause them to subtly stripe" it gives the garment. I always look for Homespun in my Santa Bag or Surprise Box. Thank you.
