Because I’m feeling like it today, I thought I would do this: while dyeing yarn over the weekend, I also dyed up some fibers to use in a few collage pieces. My favorite was this eyelash fiber, that is touched with the softest of pale pinks and dove grays. It is very subtle, and I absolutely adore it. I’m going to make a little 1.5 ounce skein, just enough for one of my wonderful art friends to have lots of fun with. Leave your name (with an email address attached so I can find you) and I’ll let the kids draw a random name to send this little bit of art fluff off to. Happy Spring!
