SockPixie Handpun Yarns on Etsy and Hand-Dyed Yarns too!

A couple weeks ago, I talked about selling some of my handspun. I decided to open an Etsy store. I previously had had my own website, but found that the maintenance was a lot of work for a single person. Etsy offers a great platform, that is easy and fast to use, and therefore will allow me more time to spin and dye yarns.

I have just uploaded some beautiful skeins of handspun single ply worsted weight yarns. Each skein is 220 yards of either merino, wensleydale or BFL. They would be so beautiful as yokes for Cerise Baby Sweaters. Their generous yardage make them ideal for hat, cowls, or mittens or just to add that special touch of color and texture to your knit projects.

I also created some new colorways in sock and lace weight yarns. I am having fun!

I look forward to creating unique hand-dyed and handspun yarns for my new Etsy Store.I hope you will visit SockPixie on Etsy!

They're beautiful! What kind of spinning wheel do you use? I'm taking a beginner spinning class right now, and I'm getting to try several kinds!

Hi Dani,

I am using a Louet Victoria. I really like it, it is compact, I can take it with me to the park and spin while my children play.

Good luck in your class!

I love that you're now selling on Etsy! What a wonderful move, especially if it cuts down on maintenance.

Congratulations & I'm going to mark you as a favorite seller ASAP.
