Created for Loop!

Very, very beautiful sets of baby (mini) cakes in 12 different colours per set. 
Mary of Twirl Yarns has made these for us in four different colourways:

Natural dyes, Indigo dyes, Undyed naturals and acid brights. They are magnificent for crochet, stitching and knitting lace-weight. 
The fibre is from the animals on her farm in California where she raises them with so much love, sends the fleeces to a local mill and then hand-dyes the wool herself. 
We are over the moon to have these at Loop as a special project she has done with us. 

'Stamen', the yarn, is a fine little lace-weight single ply. Perfect for knitting, crocheting, stitching, mending, tassels, pompoms and so much more... make a little magic... and play.
Please enjoy!

Each cake is approx 46 metres/ 50 yards. Each set of 12 has a total of approx 552 metres / 600 yards

In each set, Mary has a printed leaflet stating both the name of the lamb, sheep or Angora Goats and what she has dyed the yarns with which is so lovely.

They both live with me after five glorious years.
