Starflower

Standard
Starflower

Background:

Beautiful BFL from Defarge Yarns, complemented perfectly with flower sequins and tiny stars.

Story:

Like the kiss of dew on the moorland heather, misty morning softens the landscape like a voile curtain. It is cold before the sun rises up to chase the dewdrops away. So many views from one landscape over the course of just one day. And then night will fall, and the flowers will be hidden, and the midnight sentinels will mark paths in the sky.

Cherry Blossom

Standard
Cherry Blossom

Background:

This gorgeous, soft, squishy yarn was inspired by the May cherry blossom in the local park. It is a 3-ply yarn and each single has a different composition. Two singles were spun thickly and with lots of texture to reflect the ragged blossom and stamen seen in the cherry flowers. One is white organic Falkland with highlights of pale pink merino. The second is pink merino with highlights of cherry-coloured mulberry silk. The thinner, worsted spun single representing the dark cherry bark is made from 70/30 merino/silk blended tops in shades of brown.

Story:

Spring’s signature sight: the pinky-white clouds of the cherry tree. Delicate pastels cluster around the dark, twisting bark support. Get close up and the petals reveal all the deep colour and ragged texture of cherries-in-the-making. It won’t be long until they shed their coats, celebrating with nature’s own confetti the progression to summer.

Over the Rainbow

Standard
Over the Rainbow

Background:

My first sequined yarn, and still one of my favourite skeins. I love the combination of simplicity and impact.

Story:

Picture a world we can’t see

Above the clouds,

Falkland-soft cumulus

With mischievous characters leaving gem-trails in their wake.

Metallic rainbow drops

Catching the sun beams,

Glinting like jewels.

A place entirely of imagination.
