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. There's red, mulberry, orange, yellow, pine green, midnight blue, eggplant, teal green, beige, reddish brown, and gold, and I used all those colors to make this yarn.
I dyed it using my splashed and speckled method, which means every skein will be different--same colors but different placement of those colors.
I dyed it on my Dream Sock yarn base, which may be the absolute softest thing ever. Think of stroking a purring kitten or soft bunny and you'll have an idea of how soft this yarn is. It's made of baby alpaca, silk, and cashmere. Since there's no wool, it may work for someone who is sensitive to wool too.
Please be aware that Dream Sock is NOT a superwash yarn so it can felt. Please wash by hand in cold water and allow it to air dry.

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.
