Gypsy Garden Yarn, by Knit Collage
Fluffy, lightweight and a touch slubby, this yarn conjures up thoughts of fairytale dreamscapes and secret gardens
The inspiration behind Gypsy Garden yarn comes from the insanely amazing trim markets of Hong Kong. They are jam packed with gorgeous ribbons, flower appliques and novelty trims. In Gypsy Garden, various colors of wool, mohair, and sparkling Angeina fibers are hand carded together to create beautiful heathered colors. The fiber is then hand spun with tiny flower trims, sequins, bits of lace and ribbon rosebuds.
Each color combination has its own unique set of trims and colors. Even though the raw materials are the same, no two skeins are completely alike because of the intense handmade process that goes into each and every skein.
Content: A mix of (mostly!) wool, a little mohair and 1% sparkling Angelina fibers. Each colorway is slightly different.
