Autumns End

This time of the year just goes by too fast! I really like winter, and I can't wait to plunge into spinning winter yarns, but autumn is also such a great time, besides usually it is simply rushing by. I have three more autumn yarns before it is getting all wintry.

First is the «Autumn Sky», my favourite of all three. Its stunning yello, orange, brown, rust and deep red colors are set into contrast with some short pale blue stripes. It is a single yarn with a thin effect thread of colorful tiny pompons spin-in and a handful of very pretty fabric leaves. It is all soft and squishy and will make a simply beautiful accessory.

Next in line is «Lonely Leaves», also a single yarn from handcarded merino, including some traces of angelina and firestar. It is mostly dark brown, but if you take a closer look you will discover subtile colors. I included a sewing thread with small leaves from a plastic foil in brown, dark red, yellow and orange. They are a bit itchy, so I would not recommend to wear it next to bare skin but eiter use it for a bag or add a kind of lining. It is quite thin and lacy, therefore with 142 m / over 150 yd a bit longer.

In the third yarn, «Autumn Colors» I used some of my own handpainted fiber along with commercially dyed and hand mixed roving to achieve these amazing colors. It is a very soft twoply yarn, and it includes shining red leaf sequins and brown glass beads. They dangle a bit out of the yarn.

«Autumn Sky» is already available in our shop here, the other two will follow shortly.
