Beaverslide love

Colour: Lichen Frost
Another recent FO, for Christmas, for my wonderful brother. I can't say enough about this yarn. It's 90% mule-spun merino and 10% mohair. It is somewhat tweedy without being a true tweed which makes it really interesting to work with. The colours have depth and body. You feel connected to the sheep what grew this wool. This is a family farm in Montana and they are lovely people. They even have roving. I am trying to resist.


  1. i started a sweater for myself in a wool this color... it now sits in a tupperware bin upstairs unfinished, just needing to be put together... front to back... it's sad. it's been over 4 years...


  2. I totally get that! You know, I'd be happy to put it together for you so you can have closure. I did that once for a quilt rawbean's mom made but had never sewn together. I think it had been that way about 20 years.

  3. I have a blanket you can finish too!

  4. Do you have the pattern for that jumper, it is so nice!
