Pompom Yarn - Pastels
This pompom yarn has been spun on a drop spindle by skilled artisans from central Chile. The pompoms are directly spun and knotted into the yarn, which is then hand-dyed in small batches to create a kaleidoscope of colour. The women work at home, producing woollen goods to supplement their family income.

Each pompom is approximately 2cm in diameter and the pompoms are spaced roughly 20cm apart along the yarn. The yarn itself is approximately DK/Light Worsted weight.
This is a truly rustic yarn, so please expect some variations in thickness and colour. I believe this enhances the unique beauty and texture of this hand produced item.
You can knit, crochet or weave with this yarn. Just add a few rows to a hat, scarf or cowl, or crochet them onto the edge of a shawl, cushion or blanket to add a touch of fun to whatever you are making.
Easy to knit with, you knit as normal, and when you come to a pompom simply push it to the front of your knitting.
The quantity supplied is generally sufficient to edge a shawl or small (baby) blanket. More than enough to adorn a hat or scarf, or to edge a cushion.
The pompoms also make a great garland to decorate your home. Hang up straight, or crochet into a chain. When crocheted, each skein will make a garland approximately 4-5 metres long.
I try very hard to represent colour accurately, but please bear in mind that your monitor may show colours differently to mine.
