dyed angora wool batts

These are some batts I have been working on. These dyed spinning batts are a blend of angora rabbit fiber and soft wool. The colors are a blend of blues, violets and greens. These colors work very well together to produce a beautiful soft yarn.

Superwash merino wool sock yarn handpainted

I am offering two skeins of a superwash merino wool fingering weight sock yarn. The yarn is 90 percent superwash merino, and ten percent nylon. It is a four ply fingering weight yarn that has been hand-painted to undulating tones of teal, violet, butternut and cream. I call it "Arizona Evening." The yarn is perfect for socks, or any next to skin garment. It has that cool, soft comfort feel that you get with real merino wool. Each skein yields approximately 370 yards.
