occassionally i make a skein of yarn that i fall in love with. this was the case with "the silk road". i wanted to capture the feeling of the desert. of pale sand dunes. of camels carrying riches from the orient - silks and spices. this skein is super soft and luxurious - hand dyed and handspun with merino and bamboo and soysilk and a camel/silk blend that makes it shimmer. and this softness contrasts with vibrant and sparkly snippets of novelty yarn. this, and 100 more skeins will be for sale at my booth (#r32) at the ooak show in a couple of weeks.
