Super fine merino and curly fleece beauties

I will be stocking a super fine mulesing free 18.5 micron merino fiber, slowly replacing my current 20 micron stock, as my wholesaler for this particular fiber closed his business for good – BIG sniff!! I guess when you are 74 years old and worked hard all your live in the wool business you finally deserve retirement. I am surprised he still managed the hard work at that age, I respectfully take my hat off. So far there´s the 18.5micron fiber available in beautiful light taupe, dark burgundy, light pink and dark blue, more to come soon :o)

I have sorted more of my hand washed dark grey wensleydale curly fleece, and I`ve dyed new beautiful batches of the extra soft bluefaced leicester lambswool fleece, all available in my etsy store:

and the handspun/handpainted merino thick and thin yarns have been restocked:

I will be attending the St.Leon-Rot craft fair at the “Harres Cultural Centre” on March 17th (11am-5.30pm), located near Walldorf and Wiesloch. Until then I won´t stop pedalling and dyeing any time soon :o) Do come and stop by at my stall for a lovely chat!

Everyone, enjoy your fiber projects!

Fiber Project Bags

I have prepared several new fiber project bags, containing loads of beautiful colours, pure wools and silks, handspun thick and thin yarns, and curly fleece wool. The bags are perfect for spinning, felting, dollmaking, embellishing and sewing. They are now available in my etsy store:

 

There are now 3 new colourways available in my handspun yarn section, vibrant, rich and simply gorgeous! I have spun them into thick and thin super bulky yarns and also into worsted single yarns. These colourways will become a permanent part of my stock:

 

The yarns are now displayed in my Etsy store.

That´s all for now :o) Everyone have a very good weekend, and a Happy New Year!

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.
