Shop Update - More Colors of Straw's Farm Island Sheep Fingering weight yarns

by Sarah Lake Upton in ,


The weather outside is frightful, but I am warm inside playing with yarn. I hope you are all likewise somewhere warm and yarn filled. 

Fresh from the drying rack: two lovely neutral grays, one light (Woodsmoke) and one dark (Slate).  Both colors are actually based on logwood (purple) heavily "saddened" with a mix of tannin and iron which gives them a faint purple undertone in the right light - I can't help but think of the "violet" sheep of the Odyssey  (the dyeing is admitedly a bit of a cheat).

 

I couldn't help but take photos of some of my favorite color combinations:

The view from my desk.  Reginald the kaffir lime tree was not meant to see such weather.
