Yarn – Studded Snows


Gah. Making enough yarn for a big project, which is always my goal these days, takes  forever. Anyway, I’m currently on a “Studded Snows” spinning streak. Which is both alliterative and productive. I’ve spun 450 yards of it so far.

It’s a medium weight yarn spun from Mikayla‘s fiber that I accent with silver beads of varying sizes. The silver beads are strung on a black silk thread that blends right into Mikayla’s grey.

Marketing (aka Mom) never really approved of my name for this one, but it stuck. The silver beads on steely grey remind me of studded snow tires.

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.

    My sister bought a skein of this yarn for me at the Sheridan event. I just finished crocheting a beautiful scarf that is sure to be noticed because of the beautiful color and delicate beads. I LOVE this yarn and can’t wait to get my hands on more. I’m looking forward to the opening of your online store.

    • That’s great! I remember your sister; she knew right away that you would love that yarn. It’s always so nice to hear that the yarn goes to someone who loves it. We’re thinking we’ll have a store up by no later than the end of October, hopefully earlier.
