Organic Rose
This is a self striping single ply handspun yarn in fiber all hand dyed by HollyEQQ. The yarn is made from silk noils, bamboo, linen, and angelina and is a no wool alternative approach to handspun. It is soft and lovely like an organic rose, which is how it got its name.

I spun this yarn from cotton, and handpainted the finished single in blueberry and oatmeal tones. I then plied it with a strand of silk, handpainted in blue tones.

This was my first vegan yarn. It's Ingeo, Ecospun, and Angelina. It came out very soft and sparkley. I'm planning to knit it into a waterproof purse using a recycled grocery bag as a liner.
