Ok… (looks around)… ok, I think everyone’s got their parcels by now, so I think I’m safe to share the latest InterStellar Yarn Alliance parcel…
The light has changed recently, as summer turns into autumn. There’s something more golden about its cast, it falls at gentler angle. The aura of the end of summer is unmistakeable, and I wanted to capture that in a yarn.
So I chose this gorgeous 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Bamboo, 10% Nylon fingering weight, because Bamboo really captures the light to create a beautiful sheen across the yarn. And then I dyed it in the shades of summer fields, as the grass turns to a deeper shade of green, and then begins to fade to gold.
To me, these colours perfectly capture the End of Summer. And so that’s exactly what I named it!
And here’s something really fun: this month, I had Debbie at Divine Scentsations create some wonderful, hand-made soaps for the Yarn Alliance members. She did four scents — Lavender, Peppermint Leaf, Lemongrass Tea, and Citrus Lavender — and they are incredible! I can show you pictures but… oh! If only you could smell them!
One of the Alliance members said she knew she had Lavender even before she opened the package. These soaps smell amazing! I kept trying to pick my favourite scent but… it’s impossible. They’re all really different but soooo delicious.
Don’t forget, the InterStellar Yarn Alliance is open for subscriptions right now (and will close again after September 17).
