Watermelon Tourmaline Art Yarn With Felted Beads

I was inspired by this months Phat Fiber theme of Gems and Minerals when I spun this yarn, watermelon tourmaline is a
gorgeous semiprecious stone and I absolutely love the vibrant color combination. I've pre-strung the yarn with 25 of my hand made felted beads for even more gem-appeal. This yarn is worsted-aran weight, making it easy to incorporate into any project where you want to add the flavor of a hand spun art yarn without completely overwhelming your other yarn. With 112 yard, there is enough yarn to create a wonderful stand alone project like a shawlet or a scarf. The felt beads, which can be repositioned as needed, would make this a lovely choice for fiber crafted jewelry too.

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends! Melissa

    Jan, the orifice on my Lendrum Bulky flier is super for add-in spinning! I am usually pushing the limits, hehe, but these went through with no trouble!

  5. Gorgeous! I love that the beads are re-positionable.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
