Hand-dyed Superwash Merino Spinning Fiber: Burnt Amber
Burnt Amber is a range of dark to light golds, yellows and browns with bits of black and sometimes a surprise of tiny bits of green.
It’s very soft, colors are intense, and it spins like a dream. I hand-dye the fiber with professional acid dyes that are colorfast and washfast. Superwash means the scales from the wool fibers have been chemically removed so that the fiber won’t felt. That means it’s machine washable and dryable with no felting. Great for kids’ garments or socks since it’s machine washable and dryable! Each hank is approx 4 oz of superwashalicious goodness.
When spinning superwash fiber, it’s a little slick since there are no scales, so it needs more twist than non-superwash fiber. If you’d like more than what I have listed as available, just let me know! I have lots!
(Note: I do my best to make sure the color looks accurate, but, everyone’s monitor is different. So the color might look different in real life than it does on your computer. Hand-dyed colors vary from batch to batch, so please be sure to buy enough for your project.)

This was the lovely view from my hotel in Seattle, Washington. I had fun playing with the image to add some grunge, giving it an antiqued look.
Henna stencils can of course be used with henna, but they are also great for mixed-media work such as art journaling, scrapbooking, or book arts.
