Blushing Rose Art Yarn






I have created a art yarn that just makes my heart soar - I hope you feel the same.

I combined 50% pure white Bamboo along with the palest of coral pink Mohair and Wool. I let nature do the rest - a fast drafting application on my Ashford Joy Wheel and a single was created. When I started plying I used two singles and then split in a soft celery green organza ribbon when the mood hit me. After the plying was done I went back and hand tied each ribbon so there would be no chance of them falling out. After setting the twist and letting it dry in the sweet evening air at the farm this is the finished wonderful yarn....

WHAT DO YOU THINK ???

Oh thank you so much for your kind words ladies - I really enjoyed spinning this because it is in my favorite family and drafted so quickly it was like butter....
