Life in the Long Grass, Silk Merino: Gorse
Life in the Long Grass is an artisan yarn and art studio in the countryside of Ireland. Its name represents the natural life of the wool they dye; wonderful sheep braving the elements and a way of life where taking the time to make something and enjoy the process is as important as the wool itself. Owner, Caroline, is crazy about texture and rustic living and her colorways are inspired by her Irish surroundings.
This fingering weight silk/merino blend is pure luxury. The decadent texture and luster from the silk combine with the best wool to make a remarkable skein. Try it for the finest lace, shawls, and lightweight garments.
