Wonderful fibres and colours

Wonderful fibres and Colours - who could ask for more!
These two pictures are of the wonderful "treats" on the table by the couch in the front room.
They feel as wonderful as they look!
At the front of this picture is Silk Jewel by Sweaterkits.
 It is a hand dyed Silk Mulberry yarn with small beads. 
You can make stunning scarves, wraps with Sweaterkits patterns.

The yarn directly behind it is also by Sweaterkits
It is a kit - 2 balls of hand dyed yarn - Whisper and Silky Mulberry
When knitted together it makes a shawl/wrap called Light as Air.
These yarns are all hand dyed by Carolyn, the owner of Sweaterkits,
located the other side of Toronto.

In the next basket is Zephyr Lace - a lace weight yarn.
Its fibre content is silk and merino and it is so...  very light. 
The Flower Pattern
This is my finished scarf - very beautiful - if I say so myself!
There is a series of patterns to go with this yarn designed 
by Ann of Queen Anne's Lace - a talented Toronto designer.
The two baskets of yarn in this front picture are hand dyed by Jane of Dye Version,
- a small Mississauga company.
One basket has fingering weight bamboo yarn in it
and the other has fingering sport weight bamboo yarn in it.
The colours are stunning and Jane has done several patterns for using her yarn.
