Heatwave and hot wool

I hope that everyone made it through last week´s heatwave in Germany. We had a whopping 40 degrees Celsius ( = 104 degrees Fahrenhet) in the Southwest….no fun….me curling up and wanting to die….,with warmest greetings from the Sahara desert. Now the winds are blowing from the North again bringing fresh breezes from Scandinavia…..THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have therefore finished a new 2.2 lbs bulk of handpainted merino and merino/silk rovings, and also spun a new lot of merino slub yarn (thick and thin yarn) in red shades, and a very beautiful merino yarn in, yep, autumn colours. :o) These new babies are displayed in my etsy store. Everyone have a very good Summer weekend with very agreeable 30 degrees ( = 86 degrees Fahrenheit)!

Curls in felt and yarn, and more rainbow

I have been wanting to do some wet felting for months and never got around it. But now I finshed a wonderful merino-silk scarf from my hand carded batts, handpainted wensleydale locks and bluefaced leicester curly fleece. I am very happy with the result. I tend to go for autumn colours when I have the choice, so here it is, my new felt scarf:

Apart from felting I also handspun a new wensleydale art yarn in autumn colours and natural grey. And for all my quick knitters, felting artists, doll- and dreadmakers a new bulk of my handspun&handpainted “Prisma” slub yarn is now back in stock. The yarns can be found in my etsy store:
