I <3 I <3 artichoke! I can't explain how much I LOVE this yarn! It's soft and huge and delicious!!! I'm thinking it might want to be a super snuggly hat and cowl. Thank you so much! P.S. The wife calls it "Sea Monster."

Treadle to the Metal
Handspun at the Speed of Life…
Treadle to the Metal is a one-woman handspinning machine. Offering unique handspun yarns for knitting or for admiring, Treadle to the Metal (aka Carissa) produces fibery items at the speed of life. After learning to spin a couple of years ago, it quickly became my passion and I began cranking out handspun yarns, both traditional and art yarns, at an alarming (to my husband) rate. My yarns feature fiber either hand-dyed or hand-carded by myself or other indie fiber artists, such as Loop. I use an assortment of fibers, both animal and plant, in my handspun yarns including various wool breeds, bamboo, soysilk, angelina, silk, and mohair. In addition to yarns, I sell handmade items (scarves, hats, and other accessories) knitted from my handspun yarns. Specializing in soft, often sparkly, one-of-a-kind pieces, my hand-knitted items will be an eclectic addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
