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)
