Zingiberaceous (lemon, honey and ginger)
Zingiberaceous: a. belonging to the family Zingiberaceae of monocotyledonous plants, typified by the genus Zingiber (ginger).
This yarn was inspired by a steaming lemon, honey and ginger drink, handspun from dyed cross-bred wool in lemon yellow and creamy honey - with sparkles of Angelina, plus rayon fringe and silk thrown in.
It's skeined around a small sachet scented with completely natural ingredients: cleaned pistachio nut shells, steeped in fresh ginger essential oil, lemon basil essential oil, and beeswax absolute.It smells yummy!
Currently sold out of Zingiberaceous. Will try to make more soon.
Sunblink: n. a gleam of sunshine
