March Top of the Month Club 2016
As the days get longer and the sun climbs higher in the sky, the light is losing its starkness; the landscape is gradually appearing softer and more rounded. Daffodils and crocuses are blooming, dotting the grass with golds and purples. The warmer air carries sweet scents; the First Breath of Spring, Lonicera frangrantissma
, is more fragrant every day. Spring is in the air and when I breath deeply, I become intoxicated with Spring Spirit!
Falkland is our wool this month. The Falkland Islands are home to a unique sheep breed which is a combination of Polwarth, Corriedale, and Merino sheep. These sheep are adapted to their unique climate and they are raised with sustainable methods. This Falkland wool measures 26 microns and it is open and easy to spin. You will find this wool next-to-the-skin soft; it will spin into a plump, resilient yarn with plenty of bounce.
This month our wool/silk blend is Merino/SuperwashMerino/TussahSilk, 40/40/20. MSWMTS dyes beautifully, is amazingly soft, and it has super-draftability.
We are offering two tonals this month, Blueberry Liqueur and Blossom Wine. The tonals are available in our Etsy shop as well as in our webshop.
