Peace Rose and Coral Rose Fibers - in Etsy Store





Today I listed three batches of fiber in my etsy store. All were dyed in the same dye pot using the space dyed method. I used Salmon, Sunny Yellow and Scarlet and 50/50 Superwash Merino/Soy Silk roving. One roving came out with a lot more coral and pink tones - so it became Coral Rose. One roving came out with peach/salmon/pink/yellow tones and it became Peace Rose. Some of the roving was in shorter pieces or the pieces became very wispy in the dye pot so I carded those up with some sunny lemon yellow superwash wool top to create the Peace Rose OOAK Custom Fiber Blend batts - two available. I love these colors together (in case you couldn’t already tell!) ;o)

I got my Zinnias batt of the month yesterday and it is GORGEOUS! My Mom is going to be over the moon with it when she gets hers. What fabulous colours. I am just so pleased!

Love the rose and coral toned fibers too - they are so warm and reminding me of spring and summer to come!

Thank you! I have been dreaming of spring and these fibers are the results of my wishful thinking.

Claire - so glad you like your Zinnias batt - I thought those colors would appeal to both you and your Mom - glad to hear my instincts were right on!

Such gorgeous colors, oh how I wish I could knit! I tried but it killed my hands.
