If you ever visit Sedona, be sure to hike West Fork just to the north. It's a hidden gem of a forest in the midst of the desert full of flowing water and huge rocks and beautiful shades of green. In the fall, it's even more beautiful with all the autumn colors. We hiked it when the colors were changing last year.
There's red, mulberry, orange, yellow, pine green, midnight blue, eggplant, teal green, beige, reddish brown, and gold. I used merino, bamboo, camel down, muga silk, angelina, and teeswater locks.
The last photo shows a 2-ply yarn I spun from West Fork in Autumn. I love it!BATT FACTS

MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
