Can't you just taste the sweetness? This started as a 4 oz portion of Devon Wool combed top. I used "space dyeing" methods which allows for the color to move in and around the wool as it sees fit.

After the dye process was finished I turned it into a DK weight single ply skein that gives 200 yards. The soft red moves into pink and then into the honey gold color. As I was spinning this yarn, I couldn't help but think to myself of how it reminded me of strawberry honey. I'll be right back, I'm going to make myself some toast. Ta ta!

My dyeing methods are exclusive to crock-pots with some hand-painting techniques without the use of plastic wrap and microwaves. I use professional, colorfast acid dyes to ensure the color quality. Do not be suprised however if a bit of color bleeds out in the soaking process to set your twist if you intend to spin with this roving.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
Hand-wash in lukewarm water with mild soap
Lay flat to dry
This material WILL felt if adgitated
It is too be expected that some dye may rinse out in the first wash. This is normal even though the wool has already been rinsed after the dye process.

Special note: I try my best to describe the colors in this yarn. However, monitors from different computers vary in their ability to convey true colors. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
