Yum, lemongrass! This months theme for the Phat Fiber Sample Box is Spice Market. Now for some reason, I really pondered this one for awhile, I could only think of my everyday favorites and they are all tones of brown, it seemed like they might be too obvious a choice as well. I love cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne, clove, nutmeg...then I remembered my favorite green tea with lemongrass, perfect choice as I have been feeling the green lately! The hand pulled roving is a blend of Corriedale in bright chartreuse, creamy bamboo, delicious citron Angelina and another layer of Corriedale in moody, bruised green tones. The colors were layered individually on my drum carder, so when I pulled the roving, rich veins of color run along the length. I'll have them (full and sample size) in the shop soon, the beautiful Citron Angelina is already available. (Look carefully if ordering, I also have Lemon Zest Angelina, which is nice too. In the pictures the colors look very close, but the citron has a definite chartreuse glow. I'm making myself a wig out of it, hehehe...no I really am, giggle, just as soon as I get my top hat!)
Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!
