Dear Spring, WELCOME!

Here comes my April/May update of fresh fibers and yarns that are listed in my etsy store and ebayUK store:
A handspun self striping merino yarn has come to life, with beautiful vibrant spring colours, and 2 skeins of handspun wensleydale yarn “Curly Tales” in natural white have made it off the bobbins.

 


A new batch of super soft hand painted merino rovings in rich and vibrant rainbow colours in single segments so the strands can be handspun into a self striping yarn very easily without having to sort the colours first. The rovings are also perfect for nuno, wet and needle felting projects.

All 25 shades of my super soft 20 micron merino wool rovings are restocked in 3.5oz (100g) braids, including leaf green, berry red, and pitch black.

 


I drum carded 1lb of super fine 18 micron merino batts in pitch black, blended with stunning bronze mulberry silk….gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.

All standard colourways of my handspun and handpainted merino thick and thin yarns are also restocked, including “Element”, “Reds” and “Savannah”. I made tons of these babies this month…I think I will take a serious thick and thin break for a while. :o)

Fleece wise I sorted several 1oz bags of lovely clean natural white long wensleydale curls, and hand painted long wensleydale curls in rich auburn-mahogany. The curls will make beautiful long dolls hair. They can also be tailspun, or incorporated into any felting project for extra texture.

 


Last but not least, 2 new shades of pure mulberry silk roving are listed in my etsy store, a light pink and a golden brown, both shades are stunning! The average staple length of my silk fiber is 6 inches (15cm), which makes it most suitable not just for handspinning and adding to felting material, but also for ultra soft and fine straight dolls hair.

 

That´s all folks. Have a very good spring season and Happy Fiber Crafting!

Beanie production and fleece update

I think that 2016 will be a crocheting year for me :o) I have been enjoying working my yarns with the little hook for the past months, and now I have found my passion for beanie hats, variegated, stripey, gipsy style or boho, they are great fun to make, especially with yarns that have freshly come off my bobbin or out of my dyepot.

Any size between S-M/L (= head circumference of 20-23 inch, that´s 50-58cm) can be finished with 1 skein (180-200 yds) of my worsted weight single yarn. The yarn in purple shades I didn´t use for my hats, I thought that someone else should have fun creating something gorgeous with it. :o)

I received the first new bulk of freshly clipped wensleydale fleece in natural white and natural black. Some of the black fleeces turn into grey fleeces once washed, it is hard to tell how dark or how light they will be while they are still greasy. The black lots and the grey lots are absolutely beautiful and very clean, hardly any veggie matter to be found. The white fleece is currently drying and will be displayed as soon as I have sorted it. The hand painted lots below are freshly dyed Bluefaced Leister fleece, 1st clip and gorgeously soft!

The hats and some of the fleeces are now displayed in my DaWanda store, and the yarns and all other fleeces can be found in my etsy store and my ebayUK store.

Everyone Happy Fiber Crafting!
