Tree Bark Sweater

Last spring, I was captivated by a tree’s beautiful bark.  The texture and color captured my imagination, and I went to my studio to card some fiber inspired by the bark.

Ta da!  Here’s the finished sweater:

More Tree Bark batts are available in my Etsy shop.  Spin thick or thin (or both)!
