She sighed with contentment. It was 2 am. She rocked quietly in her pale pink bathrobe, holding a tiny, wide eyed, brand new person. As she looked into those dark, wise, eyes, she felt small, cozy, and complete. Her fairy tale had just started its happily ever after.
Soft and sweet, Fairy Tale will be an adorable medium for your next project!
Mo spun this yarn from some super soft merino combed top she hand painted using the kettle method. She carefully placed color in just a few spots, leaving lots of white. She used food safe dye and lots of heat to set it. After it was dry and fluffy, she spun it thin on her Ashford Traditional wheel. This yarn is yummy and next to skin soft with a 21 micron count. It has pink, blue, and yellow with little hits of green, lavender, and orange on a creamy white base.
