~Puffy Mondaes And A Giveaway~
When I went home to Idaho for my visit I spent time at my favorite shop Puffy Mondaes.
My friend Keren and her husband are the owners of this unique shop.
Karen sent home with me a skein of her hand spun for a giveaway.
This "Cloud" skein pictured above came from a raw Idaho Grown "Poly Pay" sheep fleece a breed of sheep developed and named in Idaho.
I asked Keren to explain the process she went threw to make this unique and lovely skein here is what she had to say:
I washed the raw fleece to remove the lanolin, hay, and dirt, then dyed the wool in clouds without carding.
The lofty texture of this yarn is created by spinning the wool in the clouds around a wool core, then wrapping the yarn with a wool thread.
Knit "Clouds" on PHAT needles to retain texture (sz 13 or Larger), or sz 10 or smaller to create a dense, textured fabric.
For more "Cloud" hand spun in other shades contact Keren at Puffy Mondaes.
The prize:100% "Poly Pay" Wool Idaho Grown/Hand spun by Karen 110 yards in a lovely blue rightly named Cloud.
