Fresh off the spinning wheel - Maerchengarten
I just recently finished spinning this beautiful Falkland roving called Maerchengarten, which is German for fairy tale garden. The colors are so gorgeous - forest green, earthy brown and petal pinks with a hint of gold throughout. I Navajo plied this yarn to retain the beautiful colors. Here is how the roving looked before I started spinning it.
And here is the finished yarn.
This yarn is 342 yards of DK weight and weighs 4.3 ounces. Falkland is soft and squishy and is a very "green" fiber. The listing in my Etsy store can be found here.
