Northern Lights

This easy-to-spin fiber comes in a vibrant range of colors and spins up incredibly easily. I've also used it in felting, mostly as an embellishment since it is a fine pencil roving. The scarf below, designed by Judy, was felted using Northern lights. It has a lovely drape and great hand. You can get a better view of the colors by clicking on the photo for an enlarged view. 8 oz bags: $30/bag...

Note: pastels is shown in both photos and although they call it pastels, it doesn't look anything like what one would consider "pastels"...these colors are bright and saturated, not soft and pale!
