Summers Chrysalis, September Top of the Month Club 2015
September is such an in-between time here in our part of the world. High summer is quietly transforming itself into something new. Clear sky is emerging from the summer haze as spots of gold appear on the sycamore trees. Beside the summer-bleached woodpile, the goldenrod is in full bloom. The blue-green-gold of late summer heralds summers transformation into fall. Welcome to Summers Chrysalis, our September TOMC!
Our wool/silk blend this month is Blueface Leicester/Tussah Silk, a 75/25 blend. BFL of course needs no introduction; it has enormous luster and is open and easy to spin. The silk in this blend adds luxe to the infinite pleasures of BFL. This fiber will spin into fantastic yarn at almost any grist.
Our wool this month is Superfine Merino. At 19 microns, this wool is incredibly soft. It loves to be spun fine with lots of twist but it also loves to coil and beehive! If you havent spun merino before, you are in for a treat!
The tonal this month is September Sky. It is available by pre-order through the webshop and through the Etsy shop!
Stay Cool and Happy Spinning!
