  • Details
    "When life gives you Lemons....Make some Lemonade!" Everything happens for a reason that is why this saying is so wonderful. No matter what comes your way, make the best of it. This yarn reminded me of Lemons and of course this saying immediately popped into my head and made me smile. The colors include bright yellow, lime green and white. Enjoy the Lemonade!

    Here is a listing for two skeins of 2-ply, handpainted, handspun Punta yarn. I hand paint all of my fiber using Eco Friendly dyes and I set the color with steam and Citric Acid. I carefully mix all of my colors to create the colorways you see. All of the fiber is spun by me on my Ashford Elizabeth spinning wheel.

    Punta Wool is very soft and squishy. Punta is not a breed of sheep rather the region it comes from. This wool comes from a region in South America called Punta, hence the name of the wool, not the sheep. It is a combination of breeds and is very soft, it reminds me of Merino.

    If you would like this yarn in a center pull ball let me know at the time of purchase and I will be happy to wind it for you.

    All of the yarn from Allegheny Fiber Arts is created in a SMOKE-FREE, but pet friendly home.
