Picking Purple Petunias
Late last night when AGAIN I could not sleep I went to the carding machine and started the process of letting go. I had the other day took a pure white baby llama fleece from the blood lines of B Goldsmith. My dear friend passed some time ago - she taught me so very much about llama's, training them and understanding the way in which they think. For about 15 years I also called her friend. This sweet baby llama fleece she traded with me for some of my cashmere and so I have held on to it for a bit waiting for it to speak to me. I think I was unable to listen because I missed my friend so much that I could not work on the last fleece I traded with her.
The other night I swear it was as if she spoke to me and said HOW ABOUT PURPLE??? I was thrilled with the shading that I obtained on a pure white fleece. Now What - well this is what. I remembered on her front door she had one time a hanging basket of Purple Petunias so that is what I went about creating. I hope she would be happy with them.
So I offer these 12 batts to you all - 4.75 ounces in total for the sum of $33.25 plus shipping costs. The batts contain Baby Llama, Merino, Silk and plum Angelina. These will be a joy to spin but also felt.
Would love to hear back as to what you think of them and hopefully someone will just PICK them...
