Fluffy white yarn


Pillow soft and a creamy white, this yarn is my favorite of product of my almost painfully productive weekend. I’m calling it “Clouds Over Tuscany, Due” (“due” means two in Italian).

I spun it up as a medium-bulky weight yarn, which is unusual for me, because I know that it’s destined to be part of a blanket. I can think of nothing worse than trying to crochet a blanket in lace weight yarn.

I really, really like how it came out. It’s fluffy, luminous, and rub-your-face-in-it soft. I just wish I’d had decent light this morning while taking pictures, so I could show it off. The slight golden tinge reminds me of that lovely amber light I imagine bathes the Tuscan landscape.

Side note: The word “Tuscan” looks weird. For some reason, it looks like “Vulcan” to me. Probably because I am a nerd. So is WordPress, apparently. It doesn’t know the word “dye” but it does know “Vulcan”.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
