Fabulous Yarns

A few months ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Judy of Mama Jude's. She gave me the idea for the butterfly shawl. She plant dyes organic yarn as well as spins and dyes fibers into yarn. I made this scarf from her bulky Merino, and it is so soft, and so colorful.

This one is a wool mohair blend, I got this color and some red that was dyed with Brazilian wood fibers, I made a scarf for my sister, since she plays viola and her bow is made from Brazilian wood.
This one is her sock yarn, I don't make socks, this will be a shawl.

This is silk and wool and it is so so soft. I bought all the yarns as hanks and I was able to wind them all easily not one of the 5 hanks knotted. Judy's prices average between $18 and $38.00 well worth a luxurious treat.
