Handspun lace yarn – petals on the water

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)

A new batch of hand dyed extra soft polwarth and merino/silk rovings in gradient and variegated colorways has come off the drying racks – the colors are very rich and beautiful indeed! And a fresh bulk of handspun thick and thin merino yarns, including my “Swamp Witch” (last 4 photos), chunky plied merino yarns, and a very fine handspun polwarth lace yarn is in stock again:

I will be spinning more of my “Bali Dancer”, “Sorbet” and “Riverdale” chunky yarns this month, and they will be displayed in my etsy store as soon as they are set and dried. :o)

Everyone have a fine summertime!

I carded new batches of super soft merino/silk batts – I didn´t entirely get around the autumn colours, I know it´s still summer, but I love those shades too much to leave them out. :o)

Remember my pink-purple handspun merino-bluefaced leicester yarn from July´s blog? Well, I spun a second skein in the same colourway and a third one in multicolor rainbow yarn from my space dyed wool slivers, coming to about 310g (10.9oz) of yarn between worsted and chunky weight, with an approximate total length of 400m (440yds). I crocheted a beautiful and cosy hooded scarf with them. I love the finished piece very much, it came out the way I had hoped. It will be perfect for very cold weather. I kept my promise, didn´t I? I did not crochet another beanie…. :o)
