Handspun indie yarns that make me swoon

I love handspun yarn.


Love love love.

I could write books on knitting with handspun (and am actually planning one!).  I love knitting something truly unique with some gorgeous handspun, using hand dyed roving.  Sigh.

Here are a few picks to share with you, in perfect Autumn colors!  These are all incredible spinners, all of whom I highly, highly recommend.

cranberries with attitude, knotty naomi
southwest autumn rustic, kitty grrlz
autumn leaves, terrabella spun
From top to bottom:

  1. Knotty Naomi, cranberries with attitude twisters (gorgeous colors!)
  2. Kitty Grrlz, southwest autumn rustic function art yarn (Bobbi's art yarns are incredible)
  3. Terrabella Spun, autumn leaves (SO soft and squooshy!)
What is your experience with handspun yarn?  Any favorites to share?
