candles a present for my mother, the yarn - i asked my husband to translate some new-to-me kanji on the label. thinking this was handspun cotton i planned to dye with my japanese indigo, turns out it is delightful wild eri silk. second time i`ve been pleasantly surprised with what i have. i can`t read, really. those moths are so beautiful. glad i asked. maybe this will stay natural. i`m so glad i grabbed two of these skeins before the shop closed.
