Colorway: Fool's Gold
3.4 oz Merino Top

This merino is skin soft and has a great handle. Perfect for spinning or felting. I tend to stay toward the blues and reds when dying, so I am so happy to present this lovely fiber full of yellows and lighter oranges.

I know the expression "fool's gold" has a negative connotation to mean a treasure that turns out to be worthless, but there is a story here.

When I was very little, maybe 3 or 4 years old, I went to the creek with my grandmother. I picked up a pretty rock and took it to my grandmother who told me, "Yes, look. It's a pearl!" And in my preschooler wisdom, I told her, "No grandmother, it's a rock. Can you say 'rock'?"

This colorway is a nod to all the little "treasures" we find as children that can't be assigned a monetary value.

Though I try to represent color as best as I can, there may be variations due to monitor variations.
