These are my new batches of super soft (18.5micron) and smooth hand dyed merino-nylon superwash sock yarns in rich colorways, with a tight twist for extra durability, 3.5oz/440yds (100g/400m).

Fresh from the bobbins these are the perfect winter yarns for hats, scarfs, gloves, babywear and weaving: worsted weight merino “Coffee To Go”, “Purple Dip”, “Vanilla Oak” and “River Orchids”,

Everyone enjoy the Christmas holidays and your fiber projects!
Before the year is over I thought I should make some fresh soaps, as almost all of them sold at the last craft fair. So here they are, a beautiful 20 lbs (9kg) selection of fine traditional cold processed soaps with precious unsaponified jojoba oil and pure cocoa butter, producing a wonderfully rich lather: LEMON, MASALA CHAI (SPICE TEA), FRANGIPANI, ENGLISH ROSE, CINNAMON, and my favorite HONEY BLOSSOM. Also perfect as shampoo bars and a real treat with all the goodness of skin nourishing pure plant oils and moisturising natural glycerine. All soaps are vegan and palm oil free.
Note: my soaps are licensed to be sold within the European Union only, I´m afraid. Outside of the EU I would need to get a license for every individual state/country I want to export my soaps to, and that would cost me half a kingdom. I wish there was just one worldwide soap license available that would be valid everywhere – wouldn´t that make bureaucracy a BREEZE!!!
The new soaps are now displayed at StoneCircleWools in the soap section. :o)
Everyone have a very Happy Christmas, and a healthy and prosperous New Year!
