Introducing The Underworld collection. This is Persephone, Greek goddess of spring and queen of the Underworld. Hades fell in love with her at first sight and tricked her into the Underworld. Initially unhappy, she grew to love Hades, who struck a bargain with her mother Demeter to allow her to live on earth two thirds of the year. The return of Persephone to earth is celebrated as spring.
The Underworld collection is designed to be paired in a number of different ways with the other parts of the collection. The first picture shows you Persephone, following that there is Persephone paired with Orpheus, Styx , and Hades in that order. The listing is for Persephone only in 3 ozs increments in either 70/30 polwarth mulberry silk, or merino tussah silk 80/20. Of course Persephone can be spun by itself, but the collection is designed to give you lots of flexibility of colour.

A note about 'white bits' . Each roving goes through my hands about 5 times in different parts of the process. I do my utmost to avoid light spots or white bits where they are unintentional, as this is a hand made product however occasionally they do occur. I usually make my rovings a bit overweight so if you desire and you do find a white bit please just pluck it out. You don't have to use it! Sometimes though they are intentionally there to lighten the colour as you spin.
POSSUM FIBER Possum may not be for everyone but is an ecological luxury fiber. I am completely against farming animals for fur and was a vegetarian when I arrived in New Zealand, therefore was initially a bit dubious about possum.However,the possum here was an inroduced species which now numbers about 17 per person.Omnivorous,it crunches through our rainforest and endangers native birds such as the rare kiwi.The fiber is a useful way to utilise rather than just completely waste the by-products of harvesting the possum.The possums are NOT farmed for their fur,they are harvested from the wild. It is not an endangered or protected species therefore there should be no problem importing it.I have checked with our customs that it is so,but it may be worthwhile checking your countries import restrictions.
