"Luxe"













Here's the latest from start to finish. The inspiration for this one was Natasha of Luxe Fibers fame. I had fun hanging out with her on my trip to Sheep & Wool. Anyhow, here it is- a luxury blend of silk, angora, kidmohair, alpaca and angelina spun with snippets of novelty yarns and trims. Plied with glass beads threaded on viscose thread. 91 yds of gorgeousness!

  4. If only the internet could be more tactile! It is very soft- with the exception of the sequins. I love the way this yarn finished up- its full of texture and layers that are simply difficult to capture on film. The angelina adds diamond-like sparkle once its heat bonded.

    I'm trying to decide what to do with this yarn- I could either send it to a certain editor I know who I've promised in the past to send some of my handspun to- or I could start weaving it. I'm moving more and more towards wanting to create finished objects from my yarns.
