Description

Serpentina is a unique yarn, created in our cooperatives, handspun from handpainted merino tops, Serpentina is a truly artisanal product. Each skein is unique, and the colors are totally random — they will not stack or pool.   The spinning process creates a delicate color twirling effect that reminds us of the paper streamers (serpentinas)  thrown at the Carnival parties.
The colors in Serpentina’s color card honor iconic women, that have changed History.
