Annie Oakley - Cumulonimbus Top
The colour story:
The history of intrepid women forging paths into unconventional fields is rich, albeit often not adequately told. I was thinking of a colourway that would combine the rich browns of dirt, tobacco and leather with a deep burgundy and softer pinks of trim Victorian jackets and full skirts. This is that idea on fibre, ready to invite the intrepid to the saloon for a visit.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project and like a consistent look, blend your skeins as you spin/ply.
The fibre story:
Delightfully fluffy and superbly lustrous 50% silk and 50% superwash merino roving ready for spinning.
Each skein of hand dyed fluff weighs approximately 110 grams.
