Yarn heaven

I just had to show you this.

Yarn from Finnsheep wool in natural colors. Isn't it just gorgeous! Why would I even need to get dyed yarn when all my favorite colors already exist right there on the sheep?! I got these from Riihivilla. Leena dyes Finnsheep yarn with natural dyes from mushrooms and plants and she has a bunch of gorgeous selections to choose from. Just look at the Sunset Selection or the Night Sky Selection. Wow! The one I got is called the Natural Selection, and I got the larger batch, i.e. all the skeins are 60 g. I can't wait to make mittens with this!!!

You'll have to excuse me now, I need to go fondle my new yarn...

Oooh, pretty! For some reason the fact that there are 6 colors in the kits made me think of the Dream in Color Tulip Cardigan. Wouldn't that be gorgeous using her yarn?

I love those colors, too. I'd like one sheep in each color for my very own, please!

I am so glad you like them, and I can't wait to see what kind of mittens you make with them.
I loved the socks you had made earlier!

What pretty, easy on the eye, colours!
I'm very curious what pattern those mittens will get!
