Stone Spindle Farm
Goldenrod/Sumac Handspun Yarn
A blend of 76% alpaca and 24% Romney wool.
The challenge for this yarn was to dye it with materials collected as close to the house as possible.
The Goldenrod was harvested in the pasture. Sumac candles were cut in the ditch along the house. Cranesbill ( also called Wild Geranium) came from the flower bed next to the house.
The addition of the Romney wool gives it great shape retention.
Soft, lofty and warm.
Recommended needle size - 4 - 4.5mm
