Beach Umbrella

On the "Day of the Sheep", that was held out here on the islands last week end, I bought this very rustic wool with lots of lanolin and pieces of "nature" still in it. The sheep that it comes from grazes out here in the summer, and I petted them myself, they were very friendly and warm. I mixed the colours with each other and spun it on my spindle, then I plyed it whit just white to get a pronounced "barber pole effect". 
I call this Beach Umbrella. 
Available in my Etsy shop.
