The Prize Art Yarn Revealed

It's been quite a while since we announced the winner of our giveaway. We spun the yarn soon after the prize drawing and our lucky winner has already received it. It's high time we showed it to you, too!

We found merino wool of a wonderful light blue that matched the colour of the pictures, and we blended it with some teal merino and shiny white mohair. We added antiqued copper flower beads to match the antique and floral style of the first inspirational picture. We also were lucky enough to find some transparent, silvery seed beads similar to the beads in the second picture. Finally, we added some white flowers to match the floral style of the last picture, though the are more like the background deco than the real objects, but we think this is close enough. We also added some (faux) pearls because we thought it to be a good idea ;-)

Unfortunately, the colours are a little too bright and tealish; I didn't look at the photos before shipping the yarn and wasn't able to take some more. Originally, the blue colour was much closer to the blue in the pictures
