Yarn Inspired

My Heart Exposed Yarns is the perfect inspiration for Spring projects. This stunning tencelino (merino wool and tencel) was hand dyed from flowers by the amazingly creative Helen Jacobs-Grant. Helen is a dear friend, who is visually impaired. She is the mother of 6 children, a gifted designer of loom knit patterns, and most recently, the proprietor of an on line shop with her hand dyed yarns. Helen is also now spinning her own hand dyed roving! You can read about Helen's creations on her blog My Heart Exposed and see her yarns at My Heart Exposed Yarns, both in my links list. Thank you for inspiring me Helen!
