There was a thread sale at my local needlework shop, so I went looking for something extra nice to work my bluebirds with!
The larger skeins are Caron Impressions (50% silk, 50% wool), and have a really lovely sheen while still fuzzier than floss. The small brown ones are Bella Lusso merino wool, which are lovely and so very soft. I think the colors and textures will make the birds spectacularly vibrant, even while surrounded by all those beautiful flowers and leaves. There’s more than enough for two little bluebirds, so I’ll be having fun with these for a while.
I was also extremely tempted by the absolutely gorgeous variegated wools, silks, and wool/silk blends from Gumnut Yarns. Those are beyond amazing. Unfortunately, since they’re imported all the way from Australia, the prices are also amazing. So they will have to wait until my salary goes up. Dear Australian readers, I am so very jealous of y’all.
