All Hollyhocks, all the time!

It sounds like a lot of you like hollyhocks too. Or your Grandmothers did. I aim to please. I think this one is my favorite color.

The corresponding batts: "Blush". Alpaca (Peach Boy) with merino/silk. You can't tell from the photo very well, but there is yellow in there too. 6 ounces.

The batt is white alpaca (Peach Boy) with the slightest bit of yellow alpaca, and yellow kid mohair from a friend's herd. These weigh in at 5.2 ounces.

Gratuitous hollyhock shot.

I have a huge bag of seeds from these plants, all mixed together. If anybody wants some, drop me a line at annie at maplecorners dot cahm.

Yours are gorgeous, but I cannot grow Hollyhocks here in Missouri. I used to grow doubles, but can no longer get them to bloom. Thank you anyway. I'll have to just enjoy yours. said...

Beautiful!! I love how you match the fiber to the color of the flowers.
