lilly5

100% Corriedale wool.

 

Yet again, this yarn was an accident. There was supposed to be a stripe of blue, but the wool was very wet when I was applying the dye, and the green and purple bled so much into the middle that there wasn't room for the blue. Luckily, the dye bleed stopped at the edges of each color- so there was very little purple dye mixing with the green, and the tiniest bit of white was left.

 

I spun it very, very thinly, and Navajo plied it. The end result is a worsted weight triple ply yarn, with stripes of lime green and bright purple.
