The Hebridean Woolshed. Uist Landscapes - Mountain Haze Handspun Merino scarf
There's the almost-indigo of field scabious ; There's the pinks and purples of heather, heather and ling ; the jade green of moss, in patches on the near-starved soils of the high and north-facing slopes ; the burnt orange of the carnivorous sundew, and the the tall grasses and reeds, yellow gold in the low autumnal light.  A haze of colour, bleeding from the moutainsides, smudged in the drifting mist and attenuated by the distance.   Welcome to our new, limited-edition Uist Landscapes hand-spun merino wool yarn : Mountain Haze

Yarnitecture by Jillian Moreno
When you've been working at a craft for nearly 40 years - for a living, not a hobby - it takes more than a re-hash of previous books to stimulate the imagination. But then along comes a book like Yarnitecture!
