Round 8 from My Heart Exposed Yarns

Presenting "Funhouse" from My Heart Exposed Yarns naturally dyed, hand painted, soft Bluefaced Leicester 20g samples for the Fibreholics round 8 sample boxes.

This collection of sample sized fibres were all dyed at the same time using the same natural dyes for each, the resulting variation between the colours came as a complete surprise and was masses of fun to create, hence the name 'fun' as that is how my daughter Angelica and I felt at the time of creating these for you.

Each individual sample comes with its own label with purple ribbon and small silver heart charm attached which are a little keepsake from us as a thank you for trying our fibres.

Really looking forward to seeing these samples spun into your yarns, what ever you decide to create with them we hope you love them as much as we do.

All our love,
Helen and Angelica xx
