Off the Loom: Solar-Dyed Osage Yarn Scarf

Solar Dyed Osage Scarf is off the loom using yarn from indie dyer/hand spinner Flamingmeatloaf Fibers: Fingering weight yarn (Colorado fiber/locally milled), solar dyed with Osage. Check her out at www.Flamingmeatloaffibers.com

From Flamingmeatloaf Fibers:

“Dyed during the hottest days of the summer using the heat from the sun and Osage to create a bright color with added depth by overdyeing grey.๐Ÿ‘ Merino/CVM with a touch of Wensleydale added for strength and luster. Yarn is from a small family farm in Colorado and milled locally in SLC”.
