Grape Sheep Etsy shop OPEN

My friend Racheal (Rachael's Space) that helps me on so many of my craft projects aka the purse, blanket, the Super Mom cape and so many has opened her own Etsy shop. She is an amazing knitter and makes beautiful yarns that she spins herself! You'll love it and if you're in need of anything for a project please stop by and see her!

If any of you play farmville on Facebook you'll know this, they have a purple sheep you can get so that is the name of her etsy page. Check it out: Grape Sheep

Here are a few she has up right now:

Strawberry Lemonade



Faukland top. Spun Aran weight (heavy worsted about 8wpi). 112 yards. Used Navajo ply to preserve colors. Great for next to the skin wear. Soft and springy. This yarn will felt so hand wash or have fun with your felting project!

Midnight Rainbow



What do you get when you dye a natural color Romney wool with a rainbow of colors? This beautiful dark yarn that will work up into subtle stripes. I hope you have as much fun creating with it as I did spinning it.

Purple Gem



This super soft 2-ply yarn is squishy and scrumptious. 440 yards of fingering weight (14wpi) merino. I knit a hat for my daughter with it and used less than 70yards. This is a great yarn for close to the skin wear.
