March fibers and yarns

I skipped the February blog due to a very persistent bronchitis which had me quite incapacitated, I´m afraid. Fortunately the early spring vibes have given me a much needed energy boost, and I am back and running like a well tuned spinning wheel. :o)

 

My handspun super soft “Charybdis” and “Jungle2” merino yarns are available again in my etsy store,

 

 

A custom order of 12oz of handspun plied merino yarn in a beautiful spring yellow and greens were finished last month, using no´s 2 (lemon), 13 (sage), 12 (leaf), 15 (pine) of the colourchart

 

and the super soft alpaca wool rovings in natural black, sand, fawn and chestnut are also restocked and available through etsy

There will be a new batch of hand dyed honey blonde wensleydale locks available before the weekend, and a hand dyed lot of very long english leicester locks in dark honey are already listed on etsy

Because I had to rest a lot last month I kept myself busy crocheting new beanies with some of my hand dyed and handspun yarns. I love crocheting, it is so amazing what you can do with just one little needle

 

 

Our garden was still covered in a thin layer of snow 3 days ago, and today the first blossoms are finally out, thank heavens! Can we get some warm sunshine and a blue sky too please?

 

 

Everyone, enjoy the spring season! It´s coming slowly but surely. :o)

November yarns and fibers

Long time no blog, my apologies. We moved house and have almost fully settled in. To be back near the city is quite nice, having lived on top of a mountain for 9 years, a very beautiful mountain though and 9 absolutely wonderful years, but pretty far in the countryside. I will miss it, I will most certainly miss the fresh air and the forest right by the doorstep. In exchange we have now got all stores and facilities around the corner and in walking distance, which is a nice thing sometimes. I will enjoy it while we live here, I am sure that this wont be our last move, it´s the gipsy in me that won´t make any deals when it´s time… ;o)

I have prepared new fiber project bags, several bags of hand painted single locks from my english leicester fleece, I have listed some very soft light grey and dark grey alpaca roving, the baby alpaca mixed bags for dolls hair and spinning are restocked, and my handspun colourways “Kingfisher” and “Fairyland” single ply are also back in store and available in my etsy shop:

 

That´s all for now, I will be dyeing new yarn and fiber batches soon, please bear with me, while we are still organising the new household. :o)
