If you are not a knitter, look away! If you are -- or perhaps even just an appreciator of hand-made goods and pretty, shiny things -- then you may enjoy these additional photos from my trip a couple of weeks ago to La Lana Wools in Taos. Figgered they were purty enough to toss up here. As a non-dyer it's hard to believe that they manage to get all these shades using plant-based dyes. Some of the richer tones require double and even triple processing to achieve.
These lovely wools had inspired names such as "greeny" and "bluey." Having been the childhood owner of one stuffed duck named "Ducky" and a doll named "Dolly," I can appreciate this type of quiet genius.
