She bent low over the rocks, turning them over, looking for the tell tale sparkle. The air was hot and dry, but not nearly as hot as it would be in a few weeks. As the sun crossed the midpoint abover her head, she gathered her treasures into a small basket and set out for home. She would help her mother with the table and then get to show her father the rocks at supper. She hoped she'd found one or two that he could polish for her.
Enjoy Opal - an irresistably soft handspun yarn in deep, fantastic colors!
Bright, vibrant, sapphire blue with hits of brown, green, pale pink, purple, and royal blue, this colorway is multidimesnsional and very soft. Mo dyed this 100% merino wool combed top using the kettle method. She used food safe dyes, dyeing the braid sky blue and adding pink, juniper green, yellow, pink, and royal blue. She handspun this thick and thin, single ply yarn on an Ashford Traditional wheel. After spinning, she set the twist and allowed the yarn to bloom. This yarn is lofty and next to skin soft with a 21 micron count.
