The making process: I begin by dyeing half of the skein's worth of New Zealand merino a beautiful red, leaving white spaces for twisting colours, and then spin it as a fade to natural creamy white on my pedal-driven wheel. The finished yarn is washed in environmentally-friendly shampoo, and hung to dry in the fresh air. The result is a yarn that is both soft and surprisingly durable, beautiful, with minimal environmental impact.
