Ecru Thick & Thin and Boucle Yarn
These beautiful yarns have been in my studio for a while now, just waiting to get their picture taken. On the left is a 100% Highland Peruvian Merino Wool that has been spun into a bulky Thick and Thin. On the right is a luscious Boucle made from 35% Baby Alpaca, 30% Merino, 30% Bamboo and 5% Nylon. Both are products of Ashland Bay.
I have long admired Ashland Bay for their high quality rovings and fibers, so when I decided to expand my inventory to include Ecru Yarn, I didn't think twice about my source. I think Ecru Yarns will be a nice addition to Wind Rose for two reasons. It will supply dyers and painters with a gorgeous canvas and it will also provide a ready made product for anyone who prefers dye free.
