Summer wool

Remember this wool? Well, after a few nights of tredling, a movie of plying, a quick bath and drip dry- I've made yarn.  Once again, this natural magic amazes my hands and calms my heart.

 The yarn is made up of different sheeps' wool, from a study I did years ago.  Long enough that I don't know exactly who is in this blend... Some Shetland for sure, maybe Polypay and Icelandic... Either way, it's thick and thin, soft and warm.

 Warm is not something I'm trying to do right now, summer is upon us here in North Carolina. I'm thinking about adding this to the shop... I have so much yarn, more than I know what to do with.  If it's singing your name, let me know and we can work something out. I'd rather give you lovely people first dibs on everything I make.

These Hosta blooms is the reason I know summer is here. I didn't know they bloomed until I moved here, I love their tall, lavender petals.
