our handspun yarns
Hand-spun yarn is a tactile delight to work with. Interacting with materials made by a craftsperson rather than a mill takes your knitting, weaving, crochet, or other fiber art to a new level.
Infinite Twist currently offers four flavors of hand-spun yarn, plus multi-yarn kits composed of hand-spun and luxury yarns. All our dyeing is done in small batches using safe and color-fast dyes sourced in the U.S.
Our Halo family of yarns takes its name from the gorgeous bloom of fibers it develops after blocking.
It’s made from a buttery, drapey, super-soft wool. It’s next to the skin soft, and perfect for baby items, scarves, hats, and other accessories.
The Halo family of yarns are spun in Shanghai by Zuo in Shanghai.
Halo comes in three versions – Halo Heather, and Halo Semi-Solid, and Halo Shine.
Halo Heather is hand-spun from hand-painted roving, resulting in subtly shifting colors that don’t pool.
Halo Semi-Solid is kettle-dyed in small batches, and can be custom ordered in a range of 28 colors.
Halo Shine pairs one strand spun with hand-painted roving with a Navajo-piled strand of shiny rayon.
Our Qinghai Handspun is made from a springy, squishy wool that gives great stitch definition and an attractive corded appearance. It's handpainted in small lots to provide vivid, saturated colors.
Qinghai Handspun is made by the women of the Qinghai Spinner’s Cooperative. The Cooperative was founded by social-venture Shokay in 2010, and provides much-need income and jobs for rural Tibetan women in China’s Qinghai Province.
about our spinners
Spinner Profile: Zuo
Zuo grew up in Anhui province, one of the poorest in China.
With a 7th grade education, she moved to Shanghai with her husband and young sons in search of a better life for their family, good schools, and jobs. She worked as a restaurant dishwasher, and her husband worked as a driver.
In her home village, her mom and the other village women were all makers – they could all spin knit, sew, and do embroidery. Zuo continues this tradition with her spinning and knitting.
Zuo has worked for Infinite Twist for just over a year. She (along with her mom) spins the Halo family of yarns.
Zuo says she loves her job because she can work from home. She saves gas money for her motorcycle, doesn’t have to commute, and gets to spend more time with her family.
