Carolyn Dean/The Flying Ewe

Since shells are a result of an animal, I felt it would qualify under this category! This is handdyed Corriedale in gentle blushing hues plied with an acrylic cotton yarn which is very shimmery. The result reminds me of the varying tones of the inside of a seashell.

Bengal Tiger
I dyed merino roving in varying shades of oranges before spinning it thick and thin. I then plied it with a shiny black mystery thread that I found at my local second hand store.

"Sock Monkey". It consists of grey Rambo wool that has been wrapped in red lambswool yarn that was rescued from an old sweater. The colors and the playfulness just make me think of the old sock monkeys we used to play with.
