"DyrhoÌlaey" is inspired by a vignette on the tops of the cliffs in Iceland bearing the same name. Breathtaking views, wind, and roaring sea gave way to a meadow full of these tiny, pristine, exotic purple flowers. Each shade from that scene has been carefully handpainted onto the wool top to create subtle stripes of color. This colorway could be spun in a myriad of ways; the choice is up to you!
This listing is for one 4oz braid on Polwarth/Silk.
Classy Squid Fiber Co. batts are designed to provide a wonderful spinning experience, but would also be gorgeous if used for felted designs or as accents in weaving. My Organic Polwarth & Falkland wools are sourced from the Falkland Islands, UK, where the sheep are raised free of pesticides & chemicals in a pristine environment. Fibers are hand-dyed by me, Amanda, in my smoke-free, pet-free studio using professional grade acid dyes. I do my utmost to run my dyeing studio in an environmentally-friendly manner.
To care for your creations and avoid felting, hand-wash your items in warm (not hot) water with a mild wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak, without agitation, and allow to air-dry.
