Manifestation – A Chemo Hat in Cochineal and Logwood Organic Wool!!

A very exciting thing happened last week.

I finally saw a finished project made from Escape to Evermore yarn.

Sue Greens Chemo Sleep Cap

It was made with this yarn.

An organic wool dyed using cochineal and logwood to give a soft color combination that I just loved.

It had traveled a bit before finding its final home with Sue Green – the person who knit this wonderful hat.

It first went to the Beltaine Festival.

That is it in the center.

Then to the Fairy Festival . . .

Here it is in the center lower left.

It was dyed using a highly technological process.

The center two pots are the Logwood and Cochineal dye pots.

Eventually it ended up in my Etsy shop as yarn F-2.

Sue, who has her own Etsy shop – Greenbriar Creations – is on a team with my husband Chip and had heard about Escape through him.  She gave F-2 a higher purpose – to bring warmth to someone – possibly someone who is sick and going through chemo now.

Wow.

I am so proud.

So if you get a chance, visit Sue’s shop.  She does wonderful things with upcycling and wool and vintage linens that are so worth seeing – and buying!!  I am a sucker for antique linens and love to look through her shop.

And if you are in the market for a great looking hat made from naturally dyed organic wool . . . .
