Shades of Light

hello, thanks for stopping by. All my life I was playing around with yarn, fiber and colours, i cannot imagine life without these things. i learned weaving about 35 years ago and i always dyed some of my yarns, first mainly with plant dyes. I got tired with the limited range of plant dyes though and now i am mainly using professional acid dyes. I hope you will enjoy my yarns.
