Before the year is over I thought I should make some fresh soaps, as almost all of them sold at the last craft fair. So here they are, a beautiful 20 lbs (9kg) selection of fine traditional cold processed soaps with precious unsaponified jojoba oil and pure cocoa butter, producing a wonderfully rich lather: LEMON, MASALA CHAI (SPICE TEA), FRANGIPANI, ENGLISH ROSE, CINNAMON, and my favorite HONEY BLOSSOM. Also perfect as shampoo bars and a real treat with all the goodness of skin nourishing pure plant oils and moisturising natural glycerine. All soaps are vegan and palm oil free.
Note: my soaps are licensed to be sold within the European Union only, I´m afraid. Outside of the EU I would need to get a license for every individual state/country I want to export my soaps to, and that would cost me half a kingdom. I wish there was just one worldwide soap license available that would be valid everywhere – wouldn´t that make bureaucracy a BREEZE!!!
A fresh load of hand carded extra soft merino and merino-silk batts in wonderful vibrant colors are now available in my etsy shop All The Pretty Fibers :o) The carded fibers are perfect for wet/nuno felting and handspinning.
Also all of my repeatable handspun chunky merino yarns are back in stock. They are 111yds per 3.5oz skein (100m/100g) and perfect for quick knit and crochet projects. 1 skein will be sufficient e.g. for a chunky adult slouch hat.
Finally all colors of my soft 27 micron merino rovings, the super fine 18.5 micron rovings, and also the ultra fine 16 micron white merino roving (all mulesing free of course) are restocked and available at my Etsy store All The Pretty Fibers !
If you happen to be/live in Germany, we will be attending the very popular artisan craft fair in Walldorf (near Wiesloch) at the great Astoria hall, on Saturday and Sunday November 9th and 10th (11am-18pm) . There will be a total of 86 artisans. Do come and say hello if you are in the area!
The following weekend on Sunday November 17th you will find us at the artisan craft fair in St.Leon-Rot (the Harres hall) near Walldorf, from 11am-18.30pm, with a total of 76 artisans attending. So there will be PLENTY to see and buy! :o)
Here comes the October update for my new batches of hand dyed rovings – super fine Merino-Silk, extra fine Polwarth and soft Corriedale in all their splendor! I have taken a healthy dip into my dye bottles :o) The rovings are now displayed in my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers.
Now back to the spinning wheel – I will need to be doing quite some pedalling, there will be a big craft fair in 4 weeks time, and you can never have too many yarns for it! :o)
Fresh from the bobbins and waiting to be cuddled!! Hand spun and hand dyed super bulky merino thick and thin yarns in all their splendor, perfect for quick knit or crochet projects (needle size between US15-40 / 10-20mm), adding to felting projects, weaving (weft), embellishing/sewing, yarn dreads or chunky doll hair.
Several lots of VERY beautiful and VERY soft british bluefaced leicester 1st clip (lambswool) curly fleeces have made it out of the dyepot, off the drying board and into my etsy store. The fleeces are most suitable for wet and needle felting, embellishing, sewing, wild doll hair, and for hand spinning.
Enjoy a very low worldwide flat shipping rate, and free shipping is available too. :o)
Here comes my handspun and handpainted lace yarn “Petals On The Water”, a beautifully soft and fine self striping yarn design, now available through my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers, and probably my last handspun lace yarn for the rest of the year. I will need to start preparing for the upcoming fall and winter craft fairs, for which I still have to spin MANY chunky yarn babes. :o)
There is now a high quality logwood dye powder available in my etsy store alltheprettyfibers . It is a bit more concentrated than the chipped bark, so just 40% of dye powder will be sufficient for a rich dye result!
At AllThePrettyFibers there is now one low basic shipping fee in place with no additional charges for multiple item purchase.That way there won´t be any overcharge nor recalculating at the checkout anymore. There is also worldwide free shipping available at a set order total.
