Customer Comments: 

Thank you! Love the patterns I bought from you in December. - January 21st, 2010


I love the yarn. Visually, there's just no way to appreciate it fully except in person. All the colors just can't be captured in a photo. It is truly amazingly beautiful. And of course the texture is heavenly too. - February 2nd, 2009


Received my yarn and I am VERY happy with it.  Thanks so much. - January 25th, 2009


Thank you!  I'm eager to get started.  That's one of the nice things about living in Singapore. I ordered these patterns, went to bed and now that it is morning, they are already in my inbox. Thank you for carrying these as PDF downloads and for sending them so quickly. - November 11, 2008

I have many skeins of this dyer's yarn and will most likely get many more. There are many colorways offered, and all of them have colors which move, flow, and breathe. Secondary and tertiary colors appear where the color transitions take place. The yarn is extremely soft with a soft twist. They will have decent wearability as socks, but because of the soft twist will wear faster than a harder twist yarn. The softness more than makes up for this, however. Because of the generous put-up, one skein is all you'll need for a pair of socks. This dyer is very friendly with outstanding communication and excellent customer service when purchased from her directly. The yarn is a joy to knit with and flows through your fingers. I highly recommend this yarn to anyone who wants very soft, beautifully colored socks.

The Perfect Rainbow Yarn: Lavender Sheep

Thursday, November 02, 2006

Talk about amazing. I never thought I'd find it, really. The actual PERFECT rainbow yarn that I've dreamed about all my life. but I found it, in the colorway "Mine, Don't ToucH" by Lavender Sheep's Fiber Garden. In a supersoft merino sock yarn, this is by far the BEST yarn I've ever seen. I love it. Just ask my fiance, who snapped this pic...

He knows. He saw how excited I was. It's simply the best- and the other colorways are great, too. Vibrant, and not too dark- they are simply lovely.
