July hand dyed spinning and felting fibers, and my brand new online shop!

July 18, 2020

I have been very busy setting up my own online store these past weeks. It was quite a learning curve and it took me a while to understand the technical side of it all. I had to decide on whether to set up the store in German or English (just like Shopify only one language and one currency is supported, oh well), so I went for English with the currency in Euros. Come and take a peek, and if you find something you want just use the coupon code TENOFF4ME at the checkout and claim a 10% discount at www.alltheprettyfibers.com .

Please note: The shipping routes from Germany to the US, Australia and New Zealand for small packet goods are still closed. Fingers crossed that I can very soon add these destinations back to my shipping list!!

I have also listed new batches of hand dyed super soft merino-silk rovings my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers, they are 70/30 super fine and 50/50 extra fine blends of an absolutely gorgeous quality, have a look:

There are a total of 3 per dyelot.

Everyone, have a very lovely summer season, and keep safe & healthy. Enjoy your craft projects!!

Fresh fiber for spinning and felting projects

June 3, 2020:

Here are my new hand dyed rovings/combed tops: super soft polwarth (I LOVE that fiber!!!!), super fine 18 micron merino/mulberry silk, wonderful shetland and gorgeous (!!) british bluefaced leicester, 2-3 lots per dyelot, and all available in my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers :o)

I have been growing my own vegetables this year. I am not a very good gardener, in fact I hardly know anything about growing veggies but I very much love sowing stuff and watching it digging its way out of the soil and into the light, and growing a little every day. It´s so relaxing, call me silly but I do talk to my veggies and keep humming little melodies – it calms me down with the world being such a madhouse.

Everyone have a very lovely month of June, enjoy your craft projects :o)

Felting wool sets, and Bluefaced Leicester is back!

May 18, 2020:

After a very long time I am finally stocking a very soft and fluffy British Bluefaced Leicester wool roving again, I´m a happy bunny!! It took me forever to find the quality BFL fiber I was used to years ago and was never happy with the fiber samples I received. This new lot is a fine 22/6 micron roving/combed top with the typical beautiful luster I love so much. I finished 2 hand dyed batches of 3 lots each over the weekend. They are now displayed in my Etsy shop All The Pretty Fibers. More to come soon:

I have also prepared 5 new small sets of 26 micron merino wool roving for felting and spinning projects, doll making and embellishing. Each set contains 12 colors and weighs a total of 50g/1.8oz. The colors are beautifully rich and vibrant, and the wool is perfect for beginners as well. Here they are: “Landscape”, “Rose Delight”, “Terracotta Sunset”, “Blue-Teal-Purple” and “Fairy Hill”, all available through All The Pretty Fibers.

Time to get back to my dyepot. Today I will be painting super fine merino/silk blends, and perhaps some more Polwarth if I can squeeze them in ;o)
