Sunset Hills Handspun Yarn
Sand blended this lovely yarn using fibers dyed by Redfish Dyeworks as well as fiber dyed by Raven Ridge Fiber Arts. The warm, soft merino/yak/silk blend reminded us of hills at sunset, warm brown golds, with just a touch of purple Angelina blended in to remind us of the evening sky above! This is a very lofty, woolen spun yarn. It would make a glorious cowl or shawl for cool evenings. Recommended using a slightly larger needle to retain the loft and drape of this yarn.
