>>><<>>>Shift>>><<>>>

I've been working on these neckwarmers in luxury yarns. I discovered after finishing the first one on the left, this was missing another color that would give it a more gradual shift...so I started another one. The fibers starting with the dark purple is mink/cashmere from Great Northern Yarns in Orleans, Massachusetts. The varigated purple is a handspun Bluefaced Liecester yarn from WhorlingTides in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The dark grey is alpaca yarn from Irish Meadows Alpaca Farm in La Motte, Iowa. The light grey yarn is angora rabbit handspun from Tail Spin Farm in St. Johns, Michigan. The white is a merino/angora rabbit yarn from Raspberry Farm Angoras in Oregon. The missing color in the first neck warmer is the light grey but just as stunning as the work in progress on the right. As you can see, home grown luxury.
