Near Ireland’s western coast is the Burren, a rugged rocky landscape where plants grow when they shouldn’t, the Atlantic near the edge of it can look like liquid jade in the right light. Plants have been found in the Burren that are normally found in tropical landscapes, but here they are in this rocky landscape thriving. In the late afternoon when I took this photo, the tide was just starting to come in and it had that wonderful blue-green tint to it.
This colorway is dyed on a shimmering silk and bamboo yarn base. It’s a wonderful teal blue, with subtle tones of a darker blue. This lovely combination has amazing drape and is incredibly soft, perfect for next to skin items.

Why work with silk and bamboo?
-It can be a great insulator! It actually will keep you cool during the summer and warm in the winter.
-Luster and shine! Very few fibers take color as vividly as silk does. The colors almost shimmer!
-Silk is also a strong fiber which is a great for long wearing items.
– Bamboo is also an incredibly strong fiber!
– It has shine similar to silk.
– Despite being strong, it is a very elastic fiber, and offers a lovely drape in finished items.
– Bamboo fiber is also eco-friendly and bio-degradable.
Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
