The yellows and the greens really reminded me of Laburnum trees – and I really wanted recreate the idea of the tree in yarn. And make something with amazing texture. This art yarn is a heady mix of silk rods, yellow silk, felt inclusions and uncarded Shetland as well as some Shetland Llanwenog cross breed. Never knew I’d become as versed in talking about sheep, but then life is full of surprises!
So here is my take on Laburnum – and I’m loving the process of spinning a tree!
