Gift #778: Souvenirs from Taos

I realized that I hadn’t shown you the treasures I brought back to remind me of the time I spent in Taos.  So I thought I’d share some pictures of the yarn I purchased while I was there.

This lovely wool reflects the earthy browns, tan, and subdued greens that filled the landscape.  Even the adobe buildings echoed every shade of brown when sun and shade played on them.

A yarn full of cream, tan, and grey perfectly captured the snow-covered mountains that kept us company as we left Taos.  It had been a long time since I’ve seen snow on mountains and this was a lovely treat.  Foggy sky, swirling snow softening the sharp edges of rock, dark ripples of grey river…. a dreamy landscape indeed.

All the yarns are milled in the US and hand-dyed by artists in the Taos area. Each is a unique work of art.

Blessings to you,

Sarah
