Josef and Anni Albers were two of the most influential people to me during the year this wool was shorn. As I was designing and preparing this yarn, I was also reading
Interaction of Color, by Josef Albers and Selected Writings on Design, by Anni Albers. I was inspired not only by their ideas, but also their remarkable relationship. In memory of their union and impact I offer this yarn, Josef & Anni.
A lusciously soft, bouncy 3-ply lightweight sport is variegated with just a touch of natural un-dyed Targhee to remind us of the abundant variety found in the natural world. All of the wool used in this yarn was raised in the United States. The natural colored wool was raised on a small family farm very close to Abundant Earth Fiber Mill where it was spun.
