New Yarns on Etsy

I just posted a few new yarns on my Etsy Store. I'm excited to be able to offer a group of yarns that I spun myself (this is very rare!). These soft and beautiful seawool skeins are spun long draw from the fold and plied as two ply yarns. If you've never felt seawool before, you are in for a treat. It's the softest, most inviting stuff! This grouping is perfect for Justify, even the colors are reminiscent of the original, though lighter and a little more low key. This is a one of a kind offer, so when it's gone, it's gone.
I'm also posting some of my naturally dyed sock yarns. These subtly vibrant skeins are perfect for my Spiraling Leaves Fingerless Gloves as well as for socks. Most skeins in this series are 400 yds, enough for socks of course. If you chose to knit fingerless gloves, you'd have enough left over for a small pair of wristlets. These colors are so amazingly beautiful...really hard to show on a computer monitor. I've photographed them next to other yarns in the series so you can get an idea of how they relate to each other. Each skein in the series is one of a kind and unrepeatable. The madder root was a gift from Jan Quarles from a friend's garden in Clarksville, TN. The cochineal was a gift from Rita Buchanan. Neutrals are from my foragings locally. Sweet stuff. I'll be posting these over the next few days, so if you don't see what you want now, please keep checking back.
