Three times a week they went out to the greenhouses behind the castle to study Herbology, with a dumpy little witch called Professor Sprout, where they learned how to take care of all the strange plants and fungi, and found out what they were used for.

Description: The colours refer to the various plants and funghi in the greenhouses, of course. I wanted to present a variety, not only green plants, and I also wanted the yarn to be more interesting, so I added bits of rust red and yellow. I also spun in pieces of commercially produced leaf ribbon, and green glass beads.
