This is totally a sappy love story about how Stargazer Lilies are Nik and my “thing,” about how when he proposed, he named a star “Nuestro Amor,” how he asked me to look into the sky to find our star, and gave me my engagement ring as my “star.” As you can guess, Stargazer Lilies hold a special place in my heart.
For this colorway, I used a dye technique to layer the same color over itself, resulting in a tonal colorway with lots of depth. This listing is for 4 ounces of hand dyed combed top The base fiber is a custom blend of 62.5% Polwarth wool, 25% Tussah Silk and 12.5% Flax. All spun up, it has a lovely body and drape that will soften over time from the flax content. This fiber is dyed with Greener Shades Acid Dyes, which are professional acid dyes that are mostly heavy metal free, light fast and wash fast.
This colorway is part of the Nentes Plantarum SAL being held in conjunction with The Homestead Hobbyist.
