Mink Stole - My Take On It!
It is never too hot or to early to think of winter! The dream of snow covered trees and a nip in the air inspired this round of batts. I wanted to be taken away from the endless 90+ days so I took my finest natural colored fibers sitting in my shop and went to work. As I built up the layers I started with natural colored fawn Alpaca from LFF Gambler. Then I brought in a wonderful cinnamon Llama from the coop I belong too. Then I made sure with each layer I added pure white silk to keep me cool and crisp. Now in order to the get look just right on both edges I also included my sweet Icelandic Dark Chocolate Brown Lambs Wool. These batts are so silky soft and feels just like a Mink Stole but no one had to give their life to make this offering..
I hope you enjoy these batts and are picturing those wonderful winter days when Jack Frost will have had his way with us. Do not wait too long to bring them to your home - soon the flakes will be flying and you will be looking for something warm and dreamy...
