Aphrodite Born Bamboo Spinning Fiber

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite was said to be born of the foam of the sea, and that Aphrodite is translated to mean "the foam-risen." Though most people commonly think of warm, seductive colors for this goddess of beauty, I have chosen the blues and greens of the Mediterranean ocean to honor her sea birth. (quote taken from "Mythology" by Edith Hamilton, a forerunner of the modern understanding of Greek mythology)

The colors are dyed in a NON-repeating gradient, so your yarn will go from one color to the next smoothly.

I start with a high quality bamboo combed top in the natural, unbleached ecru color (ie, not bright white). I use professional procion (plant) dyes which fully exhaust in the dyebath and soda ash as a fixative, making the item wash- and light-fast. You may experience color bleeding in your first wash, despite my best efforts to remove any unattached fiber molecules after the dyeing process, but it should not persist.

This fiber has many qualities similar to silk. It's very shiny and has a notable silky hand, making it a beautiful and affordable substitute for silk.

This fiber will not felt, but can be used in felting projects just like silk. Be sure to handwash in cold water and lay flat to dry.

The colors are true to life, but monitors are not created equal. Please keep this in mind when purchasing.
