This colorway is full of beautiful shades from my garden...deep chestnut earth, green leaves, deep gold of summer squash, calendula blossoms, and gold beets, soft moss, butter yellow, pale gold, soft mint, and bright natural daylight. Handpainted on gorgeous Bluefaced Leicester fiber, a British longwool renowned for it's softness and luster.

100 yard skeins weigh 2.3-2.5 oz each, worsted weight, about 10 in original dyelot.

Each skein of yarn is a labor of love. Recycled or local roving is hand painted with low acid dyes, steamed, and cooled for 24 hours to ensure colorfast yarn and less environmental impact as no dye is being washed down the drain. The roving is drafted and spun on my dreamy Schacht Matchless wheel, wound onto the niddy noddy and fashioned into a skein. Next, I soak the skein of yarn in a spring water and organic grapefruit/eucalyptus essential oil rinse. At this point the wet skein is blocked (dried with weights or on a yarn blocker to remove overtwist) and finally stored, awaiting a new home.

Handspun yarn, Handpainted BFL wool yarn, worsted thick and thin, multiple skeins available-Farm Fresh
