Happy snow days and happy colours

The new year has started well with plenty of snow and very cold and crisp days, presenting a beautiful blue sky and lots of winter sunshine. On those days I even enjoy walking through the snowy winter forest up to the post office with my “Santa Bag” full of parcels and enveleopes that need to get on their way so people can start with their fiber projects. While Kitty loves accompanying me she enjoys the snow season only with her winter suit on – mind you, the little sweetheart comes from Spain and has next to zero undercoat.

Okay, let´s see what´s new in store, fiber and yarn wise: I have painted a new batch of extra soft british bluefaced leicester curly fleece (1st clip) including 3 lots of separated curls. My handspun merino thick and thin yarns “Hogmanay”, “Happy Hour”, “Fairyland” and “Jungle” have been restocked. Plus a new batch of hand painted merino rovings and a set of drum carded super fine 18 micron merino-silk batts are out and displayed, all available in my etsy store

 

 

The space dyed wool roving in fire red/yellow/brick is finally (!!) back in my ebayUK store, and so are the 24 micron merino wool rovings in deep raspberry pink, sky blue, deep red, bright yellow, and aubergine purple!

All 48 colours of the soft 24 micron mulesing free merino roving can be found in both my etsy store and also my ebayUK store.

Autumn impressions

The month of November is starting on a high note, I love it! As the days will most certainly become darker and duller quite soon let´s take in all the splendour of the autumn season, enjoy the magnificient colours of mother nature and take long walks out into the fields and forests. It´s absolutely worth it!

I have not been idle these past weeks and hand painted new batches of my English Leicester curly fleeces, some Bluefaced Leicester curly fleece, I carded more super fine 18 micron merino-silk batts (gorgeously soft!!!!), and my 20 colour merino roving bags (24/6 micron) are fully stocked again. They weigh a whopping 250g (8.9oz) per bag and are perfect for felting projects, handspinning and dolls hair – very handy for beginners in felting and spinning as well. The fibres are distributed in my etsy store and ebayUK store:

Greasy Beauty

All 50 lbs of Bluefaced Leicester curly fleece have been washed and sorted, this is the last lot drying on the rack. It is reserved as I am working off a list of requests, but I have got plenty in stock left for handpainted batches to go into my online stores…

…and I am seamlessly moving on to a 55lbs bulk of raw wensleydale fleece that arrived yesterday – thank god the weather has turned much cooler today, and the first 15 pounds of wensleydale fleece are already soaking in the buckets. There will be an absolutely stunning natural black wensleydale shearling fleece, plenty of natural white shearling fleece with very good medium length curls, and a very curly natural dark grey wensleydale fleece. I am truly pleased with this year´s clip. The shearling babies are, as always, heavily in the grease, they will require a strong double wash. Please bear with me, I will be washing as fast as I can. :o)

Curls in felt and yarn, and more rainbow

I have been wanting to do some wet felting for months and never got around it. But now I finshed a wonderful merino-silk scarf from my hand carded batts, handpainted wensleydale locks and bluefaced leicester curly fleece. I am very happy with the result. I tend to go for autumn colours when I have the choice, so here it is, my new felt scarf:

Apart from felting I also handspun a new wensleydale art yarn in autumn colours and natural grey. And for all my quick knitters, felting artists, doll- and dreadmakers a new bulk of my handspun&handpainted “Prisma” slub yarn is now back in stock. The yarns can be found in my etsy store:

Fresh colours and fibres, and Monster High dolls

I am so waiting for spring to arrive, I am desperate for warm sunshine and blue sky, sick of snow, ice and mud. It may not take long anymore now, the birds are already in spring mode, their chirping contests are absolutely fabulous, I love when they have a party in the forest and in the open fields. During the month of February I have been restocking my handpainted and handspun merino slub yarns, batts and rovings. I have also added new lots of handpainted and commercially dyed merino rovings in gorgeous and vibrant colours, handpainted british bluefaced leicester and wensleydale fleece, plus a new merino lace and a 70-15-15 wool-silk-bamboo yarn that I have called “Thuja” + “Embers”. As always these yarns and fibre babies can be found in my etsy store and ebayUK store.

In this blog I would also like to introduce Sindy, a dollmaker from Sweden, who works with funky and very beautiful Monster High Dolls. For the dolls hair she often uses my curly wensleydale fleeces, bluefaced leicester fleece, single colour merino and rainbow merino wool rovings to create fantastic hairstyles, here are some of her sweeties:

The fibers and fleeces are available through my ebayUK store and my etsy store.
