Update on shipping restrictions

Dear all, until further notice from the postal services I have had to remove additional shipping destinations from my shipping list in my etsy shops, as international and local shipping routes have been reduced drastically as safety measures due to the pandemic:

Apart from the US, I have also removed Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and Mexico.

These countries do not accept any international mail, at least not from Germany at the moment (except letter mail/documents). I will keep checking the daily postal updates and let you all know of any changes.

Everyone around the world, keep safe & well, and let your creativity flow!

Shipping to the US on hold for now

To all my wonderful US customers – I received this update today, March 26th, issued by the German postal service:

“…USA: At this time, transport capacities to the USA are substantially reduced. As such, special measures are required to maintain the shipping of letters and parcels. It is still possible to send letter mail items (documents) to the USA. Small packet products are no longer available for shipment to the USA until further notice….”

Dear all, I will need to remove the US from my list of shipping locations for now, but I will certainly keep an eye on the postal infos and let you all know once shipping to the US will be possible again. This information can also be found in my announcement section of my etsy store.

Shipping to all other countries is running as usual, though the transit time may be longer than the average delivery time, so patience is the word. :o)

Everyone around the world, take care, keep creativity going and be safe & well!!

Easter eggs and fun colors

May I present my fun bunch of needle felted Easter eggs in very bright and rich colours! I am selling them in groups of 4 and 5 in my etsy store StoneCircleWools. They will so bring the sunshine and spring breeze into your home, either on fresh Easter branches or in a lovely Easter basket. They also make great gifts, have a look:

There are also large felted eggs of about goose egg size available, they come with a lovely long satin ribbon to decorate e.g. a window or a door:

The delivery time within Europe is 6-10 days, and 7-14 days for the rest of the world (including the US, Australia, NZ and Canada).

I have prepared several new fiber project bags, containing loads of beautiful colours, pure wools and silks, handspun thick and thin yarns, and curly fleece wool. The bags are perfect for spinning, felting, dollmaking, embellishing and sewing. They are now available in my etsy store:

 

There are now 3 new colourways available in my handspun yarn section, vibrant, rich and simply gorgeous! I have spun them into thick and thin super bulky yarns and also into worsted single yarns. These colourways will become a permanent part of my stock:

 

The yarns are now displayed in my Etsy store.

ThatĀ“s all for now :o) Everyone have a very good weekend, and a Happy New Year!

All 25 shades of my super soft 20 micron merino wool rovings are restocked in 3.5oz (100g) braids, including leaf green, berry red, and pitch black.

 


I drum carded 1lb of super fine 18 micron merino batts in pitch black, blended with stunning bronze mulberry silk….gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.

All standard colourways of my handspun and handpainted merino thick and thin yarns are also restocked, including “Element”, “Reds” and “Savannah”. I made tons of these babies this month…I think I will take a serious thick and thin break for a while. :o)

Fleece wise I sorted several 1oz bags of lovely clean natural white long wensleydale curls, and hand painted long wensleydale curls in rich auburn-mahogany. The curls will make beautiful long dolls hair. They can also be tailspun, or incorporated into any felting project for extra texture.

 


Last but not least, 2 new shades of pure mulberry silk roving are listed in my etsy store, a light pink and a golden brown, both shades are stunning! The average staple length of my silk fiber is 6 inches (15cm), which makes it most suitable not just for handspinning and adding to felting material, but also for ultra soft and fine straight dolls hair.

 

ThatĀ“s all folks. Have a very good spring season and Happy Fiber Crafting!

49 colours to choose from

All 49 colours of my 24/6 micron soft merino wool rovings (combed tops) are back in stock. I have created a new listing of 20g balls (0.7oz) for my felters, handspinners, dreadmakers and dollmakers, with just one basic shipping charge and no additional shipping fees, no matter how much wool of that listing is ordered. Feel free to have a look at my listing on ebayUK .

Everyone, HAPPY FIBER CRAFTING! :o)

Fleece, yarn and a grand sunset

We have had the worst storm for the past 3 days, I thought I would loose my mind with all the rattling noise and howling wind around the house, day and night with no break. When the weather finally settled yesterday evening we were granted one of the most beautiful post storm sunsets I have ever seen up here in the mountains, it was breathtaking, I hope it comes across a little in the photo:

Now that the storm is over,Ā  just for a change we are now getting tons of snow, itĀ“s snowing, and snowing….and snowing. The snow is actually quite lovely when you donĀ“t need to get in the car and plough your way through it. Kitty is having a ball, digging for poor little mice (she ainĀ“t getting them anyway, they are too clever).
