Candy colors and the deep blue sea

Now back to the spinning wheel – I will need to be doing quite some pedalling, there will be a big craft fair in 4 weeks time, and you can never have too many yarns for it! :o)

Chubby yarn beauties

Fresh from the bobbins and waiting to be cuddled!! Hand spun and hand dyed super bulky merino thick and thin yarns in all their splendor, perfect for quick knit or crochet projects (needle size between US15-40 / 10-20mm), adding to felting projects, weaving (weft), embellishing/sewing, yarn dreads or chunky doll hair.

The pattern for the nightshift shawl can be found on Ravelry (see my blog entry from March 7th), it was created by Andrea Mowry. The yarns and yardage for the shawl are available in various colourways by custom order but I sometimes also have the corresponding yarn sizes available in my etsy store.

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!

Wool jewelry and rainbow colors

We had such a wonderful time at the craft fair, it was terrific, and we will be attending again next time for sure!

 

People were very cheerful, and we met quite a few fellow handspinners and crocheters, it was so lovely chatting with them. One lady purchased a handspun yarn shortly before the fair closed for the night, and she returned with a most beautiful finished crochet scarf the very next morning. “I couldn´t wait, I just had to get my crochet hook out and work with that yarn while watching Harry Potter on TV” she said. She then went and also bought one of the 100m-project crochet hats I had made with the same yarn size and colourway. Dont these colors look fabulous on her?

 

 

I finished some new felt necklaces in rich rainbow shades, and there are also brown and gray versions in stock now embellished with shiny silk! They are displayed in my etsy store StoneCircleWools.

 

 

And there will be more hand dyed rovings, curly fleece and handspun yarns for my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers soon, please bear with me while I restock the yarns and fibers.

Everyone have a fantastic month of November. Keep it colorful!!
