More Hand Painted Yarns and Rovings for the shop!

Autumn 1

I am happy to post the last 5 of the 10 new items in the shop.  This first one is Autumn 1.  In the Autumn dye pot, I had two rovings of Cheviot wool.  They are both very different and still work well together.  Amazes me how they dye takes differently in the same dye pot.

These rovings and yarns are available for sale in the shop and you can always check on the Alba Ranch Face Book Page for more photos and updates.

Autumn 2


The Second treat of the day is Autumn 2.   It is the second roving that was in the Autumn dye pot.  They are very different but do work together with those lovely colors.  Autumn 2 has more of the orange and rust colors than Autumn 1 has.

Sunshine and Grass 1



Sunshine and Grass 1 is a 2 ply spider thin lace weight hand painted and hand dyed 100% Angora Rabbit skein of yarn.  In the Sunshine and Grass dye pot, I had 3 skeins of yarn that were various types of wool.  It was interesting to see how the various types of yarn took the dye.  The Angora seemed to really like the color.

Sunshine and Grass 2


Sunshine and Grass 2 is a hand painted and hand dyed 100% merino 3 ply sport weight skein of yarn.  This is 1 of 3 in the dye lot.  This merino is home grown on Alba Ranch and is from White Mama the Merino ewe.


Sunshine and Grass 3

Sunshine and Grass 3 is a hand painted and hand dyed spider thin lace weight 100% Angora Rabbit skein of yarn.  This is the last of the new dyed fibers to the shop for now.  I did dye 10 more skeins of Angora yarn which were drying last night.  I think I may be using some of those in some projects so not sure on which to list as of yet.  Stayed tuned for more to come!
