Grace's Greens

Here is my latest batts - What do you think??? Does it remind you of a fresh spring green meadow as the sunlight hits the wet grass and lights it up like magic?? Well, that was what I was going for and I sure hope I hit the mark.

These 4 batts have 2.25 ounces in each so there is plenty to make something with them. The fibers in the batts are as follows:
Alpaca fiber from LFF Artemus - dyed Highland
Alpaca fiber from LFF Imhotep - dyed shades of Forest
Cashmere fiber from LFF Avery - dyed Lime
Mohair fiber from LFF Sherlock - dyed Graduated Greens
Silk - dyed Lemon/Lime
Angelica - dyed Chartreuse

It is so soft to the touch that it is hard not to just sit and stroke it over and over again. I just finished putting them up on my Etsy site so I hope they will find a great new home or two.

Can't you smell the sweet grass??
