This is the first yarn I spun from my own rolags.
There’s no scent on earth like the sweet smell of violets. They seem to remain from a bygone era:
The aroma of the fifties, or of your grandmother’s home.
Petals preserved in their unfurled lilac tones. Sugar crystals glinting like magic dust, sprinkled on to cast a spell; preserving a moment in time like a sweet snapshot.
