Macaron Handspun Yarn
Macarons for the win! The wonderful folks at Hipstrings Modern Fiber Arts dyed up this 80% Rambouillet Wool / 20% Rose Viscose fiber blend for a Tour de Fleece some years ago. Sand had aventures in drum carding to re-order the colours a bit to spin up a marled colour throughout the yarn. Macarons are so tasty, and come in so many colours, and Sand wanted to captured that feeling in the spinning. This yarn is INCREDIBLY squishy and soft! It would make up into the cushiest cowl, hat, or fingerless mitts ever!
