All Things Gold


While still on my path of cleaning out my Fiber Prep Room and finding new homes for the goodies that have become too comfortable living here I came across some great 100% Silk Textured Art Yarn. I just could not let things be so I did dye it in large pot of Golden Rods. Trying not to sneeze my head off during the process I think the end results was well worth the few more extra Kleenex Tissues my nose had to endure... The yarn is not a true boucle but rather the squiggles and turns are delicate yet add interest the moment it is added to a project. Just in time for spring and all the glow that arrives with the warmer weather - Treat Yourself !


Wouldn't this make the most incredible shawl for those tropical gatherings. How about adding a touch of gold to your next weaving project for the home. Even something as simple as creating a necklace by just gathering loops of the yarn in any length you wish and then wrapping it with beads or even sea glass... I could think of dozens more but I am sure you can come up with your own creative ideas. Love to hear what you could do with this yarn...

Thanks so much! Figured seeing how allergies are so bad this year why not just go for it...
