Pussy willow.

My inspiration comes from different places: words, phrases, concepts, books or things that I have seen and experienced walking around outdoors, in my Tennessee woods, USA. I like exploring alleyways as much as nature. Beautiful and unexpected objects, texture and colors arrive, depart and change in alleys on a daily basis. I love green, waves and see, I grew up near the Black sea, Ukraine. Even we have a song “A girl with the ocean color eyes, the girl with green eyes”. Yes, it is about me. HEHEHE.
I am also constantly inspired by my friend-spinners (we have a group of nearly 30+ spinners in our area), meet once a month.
It is so amazing you have fleece in your hand and then finish with the spinning. And it is like an adventure for me and nothing beats the alive feeling and the agility of wool you have processed yourself. Each time I spin, I learn a little more and that’s what keeps me on the quest, not for the perfection but for the pleasure of progress. Spinning is simply capturing physical energy but it can capture the energy you offer the fiber. Emotional, healing, disturbing- it can all be captured in yarn as it flows through your hands. Yarn tells stories, sometimes in a blast of information, sometimes with subtle hints. Each yarn has something different to say. Yes this is the true.

Here you have “Pussy willow” yarn. Simply inspired watching the tree outside.
I used the Shetland fiber from beautiful Shetland mama sheep, her name is Daisy. She has beautiful silver color fleece. Natural color organic fiber. This is my sheep. I cleaned all the fiber, washes , spun & 2 ply with a beautiful color light brown wool yarn lace type yarn and silver metallic thread on my antique French triangle spinning wheel.
A very unique color blend very rich silver Shetland and light brown wool lace type yarn with metallic thread gives the yarn a very special look. It was a pleasure to spin this fiber. Very very soft. Exactly like pussy willow. By the way pussy willow have silvery flowers resembling 1” long bottlebrushes, bloom in late winter . The flower provide pollen for native bees very early in the season & are conspicuous because they bloom on bare stems before leaves appear.

This yarn is a " Pussy willow", gorgeous yarn and in person simply look outstanding. One of a kind and if you want to be a unique , this yarn is for you!

This handspun yarn was created using Shetland fleece from my " little people", which was then spun to create coils, beehives, cocoons, tornadoes. And this "Pussy willow" is a little different from my previous one, here I ply with a silver color metallic thread. And it looks like some dew , early in the morning fall on my "Pussy willow". And here 3,5 times more yardage.

This would be great in an art project or as an accent to a special garment, enough for a scarf or neck warmer. Take this stuff home for a really wild and crazy item you are going to create.
I think it's a cool yarn.

Shades of silver & light brown highlights this art crazy yarn in a surprise of texture.

Don't be afraid to work with art yarn, it's very exciting to make an item with colors and textures will simply bloom in your project.

Thank you for stopping by and looking in my shop. Lusy

Made in my smoke free home.

You can say , why this yarn so expensive. Answer a lot of time wool goes to make coils, beehives, etc. If you simply spin the amount of 2,6 oz it could give you up to 300 or more yards.
