Milkmaids is a lovely rich creamy shade of off white colourway.
Named after the Milkmaid flowers that are local to our state.
This colour is part of my Kelsey Collection. I created this range when I decided to get back into colour work and was looking for colours that would all work together.
A yarn that is as close to its natural origins as possible. No superwash treatment, just a wash to remove the grease and dirt from the fleece then combed for spinning. A great choice for those looking for a luxurious, non superwash, no nylon yarn.
