Ingrid, isn't it wonderful that those vintage yarns have remained intact. I wonder if their natural dyes were originally more color-saturated or were always so beautifully muted.

You've created yet another charming vignette, with the balanced mix of shapes, colors, textures and details. What a pleasure it is to let my eye travel here!

These are really fabulous, Ingrid! Fascinating to see all the subtle differences in shade, to learn what was used for dyes and to see how well they look after many years.
