What a pleasure working with Esther. Her yarn colors are amazing. I can't wait to create something special. The fiber batt is so soft and a delight to spin. I will be ordering again soon.

This yarn is lovely to knit. I'm knitting a shawl with it and I love the way the colors showcase the pattern. Want to see it? http://ravel.me/VanaChoo/pomn

Lovely socks knitted out of Apricots. This listing is for the yarn only, not the socks... The socks are an example of how the colors knit up blush

About

♡ Handmade with Love ♡ Hand dyed yarns and fibers

My love to work with all kinds of yarns, wool, and fibers, comes from a friend who introduced me to knitting and crochet about 10 years ago. Sinds then it's taken over my life.
After the knitting and crochet had found it's placed in my life, then naturally came spinning, carding and weaving.
I always had and still have strong feelings about color and color combinations, it just resonates with who I am.
I took a masterclass hand dyeing because I wanted to expand my expertise and knowledge and sharing the love of colors throughout the world.
Still every day I feel that passion and love... Seeing colors come to life on a skein of yarn or a roving transforming into something lively.
And since then I took several masterclasses and workshops about dyeing and color theory, I think it's important to keep learning, and it's just so fun because I love expanding my knowledge about my passion. I hand dye and hand paint all the wool and fibers myself with professional dyes.

The wool and fibers I use come from farmers I know they raise their animals in a good environment and are well cared for, they are happy sheep, goats, and Alpacas. I do also use top, roving and yarns from a mulesing free environment and eco-friendly mills in Germany, United Kingdom, and South America. The rest of the fibers are natural (like Bamboo, Silk) or natural artificial fibers, like Tencel, Soy Silk. Also some synthetics like Firestar and other sparkles. And some recycled fibers and other goodies.
Wool from the farmer or mill I skirt, wash/rinse thoroughly, then card or comb and turn them into batts with almost none vegetable matter (VM) in it if there is any VM it will fall out while spinning or felting. I do my very best to be as eco and animal-friendly as I can be <3
Have any questions? Please do not hesitate to contact me.
I love to make custom orders just let me know your wish!
