Sunflowers – Tiger Club October 2018

It seems I wasn’t quite done with summer yet….so to bridge the gap I’ve created Sunflowers…..summer cheerful, with a touch of fall.

Sunflowers Cheviot Tiger Club Oct 2018

The fiber is Cheviot, a great medium wool.  It’ll make great outerwear like mittens….maybe divide up the colors and do some fair isle work!  Below is a Cheviot ewe and lamb.

Sunflowers Safari Tiger Club Oct 2018

The yarn is Safari….it would make nice mittens, hat, scarf…..or socks!   It is made with Superwash Corriedale wool, I’ve pulled up a picture of the breed below.  The shorter color stretches and back and forth color patterning will pool differently than in-the-round dyeing patterns.

I’m moving on to a cool winter colorway in November.  Want to join us?  Sign up for Tiger Yarn and Fiber Clubs here.
