Merinowool is warm when temperatures sink...

Winter is here with cold Januarytemperatures....Merinowool warms me up and brings summer to my mind. These yarns are handdyed by Sanski with muschrooms and plants from Puumala. The green has been dyed with muschroom and indigo. Every 50 gr is unique.

My daughter Melinda on a Sunday walk in the Dutch dunes.

Melinda is wearing a handknitted scarf. The yarn is finest Italian merinowool dyed in Finland with naturecolours. Melinda is an interior designer working in Amsterdam.

She likes to work with nature materials and she is often inspired by the nature in Finland where she was born.

My multitalented friend Bodil

Bodil is my friend for around 25 years now......I know her as a successful enginer working in the IT. She is also very sporty and loves the extreme.....We have been travelling together as far as you can get from Finland and sailed together in storms and sunshine.

She surprised me a couple of years ago by telling me that she was knitting. Really surprised me because I could not imagine her sitting on one place that long.....Or maybe she is one of those who knits while she is jogging - I newer asked.

Anyway, she is making wonderful things and she is very good at knitting also. Now we are sharing also this journey - journey of colours.

This is her first work that she made of italian merinowool dyed by Sanski.
