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!

That´s all for now. Everyone enjoy the winter season and HAPPY FIBER CRAFTING.

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)

And of course some new yarns and rovings were created this month, merino/silk blends, bluefaced leicester, pure merino rovings, wensleydale long locks, hand painted merino lace, baby alpaca fingering weight, and a beautiful handspun thick and thin super chunky baby in stripey black, white and, grey that I have called “Snowy Rock”. Have a look:

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)
