Earthy tones

There has been spinning! I made some purchases in a destash recently and so have acquired fibres I wouldn’t ordinarily buy.  This is naturally dyed fibre by a verb for keeping warm; merino/silk/yak in ‘sticks and stones’ colourway.

And in case you’re wondering, I have been planting lettuce and poppies and not only saltbush… and transplanting potted plants too.

This spin made me realise that my preference for strong colours would have had me disappointed with this if I had dyed it myself. But here I am, appreciating its subtlety and wondering who would like it as a hat.

    Or over dyed? 🙂 I too tend towards ‘strong’ colours.


  2. I love it, the subtle tones make me want to look again and again!


  3. I tend to go to strong saturated colors myself…… BUT…..
    I love these subtle earthy colors, they blend so well with eco printed items!
    🙂 I have kale and peas and coreopsis planted! Almost time to think about the summer crops.
