Imagine the rich, deep colors and delightful atmosphere of a renaissance festival and you will get the feel for this yarn. I spun this handspun yarn using an art batt for one ply and merino and bamboo top spun in long stripes for the other ply, making a slight variation on a fractal yarn. The ply made from the art batt changes colors every few inches while the ply made from top changes colors every 2 or 3 feet, making a rich and in-depth color experience.

I actually created a tutorial on how to make a fractal yarn like this on my blog, which you can find at www.purplelambfiberarts.blogspot.com.

Each skein of yarn is handspun by me with loving care and contains a label with all the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in matching tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!

Also, as a token of my appreciation, I am including your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these are natural moth deterrents. If you would prefer not to have either one, just choose the no scent option instead.
 
Happy fiber artistry!
