Her tears fell to the grey planet below. Her father had forbidden her to see the human ever again. She knew what would happen if she disobeyed. She would lose him either way, but this way, she could save him. Lifting the sword above her head, she cried out as she swung it down into the bridge she'd traveled so often to see him. It shattered, flooding the small, colorless planet with brilliance.
Shattered Rainbow is a gorgeous, bright, silky yarn with perfect sheen and softness!
Mo spun this yarn from some yummy, hand dyed, baby alpaca, tencel, and merino wool blend she purchased from a talented dyer. Tencel is a fiber made from wood that is shiny and slippery like silk and helps keep garments cool. Baby alpaca is soft and has a silky feel, and we all know how luxuriously soft merino feels! She spun it about worsted weight on her Ashford Traditional wheel. It came out lovely in many, many rainbow progressions, traveling from sassy pink, to tangerine, to sunny yellow, brilliant green, sky blue, dusty purple, and back again. This yarn is yummy and next to skin soft.
