Handspun wool yarn is like a raw gemstone tumbled and refined to shine and sparkle. Anything created with something so beautiful needs to be simple enough to let the yarn be the hero. I designed this headband with that in mind. Sara of Smudge Yarns dyed and spun this from the wool of local Irish sheep.
