See the picture, the lady from Tennessee, USA, bought this yarn at the Fiber in the Boro festival in Murfreezboro on the 2nd of November 2013 & created a scraf just in the morning & mailed me the picture. Read more info about this at the bottom .
This time I spun even single and ply with silk/metallic seed yarn. This yarn is one of my best seller at the fiber festivals in Tennessee.
Not too long ago I visited a Cherokee museum in my town in TN. So many interesting items there. I was inspired looking at all that arts & crafts made by Native Americans.
So I came back home & decided to create something different this time. I love to experiment a lot. So this time I took some small, very beautiful peacock feathers & spun them into the yarn. The fiber for the yarn is natural cream white, organic shetland, carded on my drum carder. I spun 105 yards and put a lot of the feathers , every yard or so, into this awesome creation. Then I ply this yarn with a simply magic by color seed silk/metallic yarn in peacock color.
This seed silk/metallic yarn is so rich in colors, exactly like a peacock fancy tail. This seed silk/metallic yarn blends so nicely with the cream white color handspun shetland yarn & peacock feathers.
Now you have crazy, awesome art yarn, which I call "Cherokee dream” & in 2012, in September this yarn got the 3rd place at the TN FAIR . I am so happy.
The weight is 1,8 oz , 50 g , 2 ply, 102 yards. This yarn is for sale now.
It is nice & clean & ready to be your new creation. I would love to have a picture of your new item spun with this awesome yarn. If you want more of this yarn just convo me and I will spin more special for you .
Made in my smoke free studio. And remember I never tension or stretch my yarn and I steam my art crazy yarn, I washed the fleece very good before I start spinning my yarn.
Thanks for looking in my shop. Lusy.
And now the letter from my fiber festival's customer in Tennessee, USA. The lady bought the yarn & sent me the picture of the scarf she created out of my "Cherokee dream " yarn. And I asked Karen if I can put the picture of her in the scarf she created out of my handspun yarn, the answer is here:
"Yes, you may use it. And if they are interested in the pattern I used, they can find that in my ravelry projects. My ravelry name is krwabby and I called that project "Crazy Scarf". I wore it to lunch today and my friends all LOVED it. I do love that yarn!!!
