Wheat Fields

The other day I told you I had been dying some worsted weight yarns in golden tones. The yarns are dry and they are so beautiful. What makes them special is their tonal quality. It is a 3 ply merino, with 1 ply being a superwash resulting in the dyes being absorbed at a different rate. This creates an almost barberpole effect very similar to the appearance of a handspun with incredible tonal subtlety and harmony.

I could not help but see glorious wheat fields at harvest time in these skeins. I dyed 5 skeins in this dye lot, because I was thinking of the perfect yarn for the February Lady Sweater.

I have just added them to my Etsy Store. I am off to dye some more but this time for me!
