I just finished spinning a ton of orders and made a few new yarns, so I thought I'd share. I went through my photos from a vacation in Maine a few years ago and was inspired to dye and spin matching yarns...

"Shoreline" - 50% viscose, 50% rambioullet


"Boulevard" - 100% corriedale


"Orchard" - 50% merino, 50% mohair, plied with gold thread
