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.

Okay, let´s see what´s new in store, fiber and yarn wise: I have painted a new batch of extra soft british bluefaced leicester curly fleece (1st clip) including 3 lots of separated curls. My handspun merino thick and thin yarns “Hogmanay”, “Happy Hour”, “Fairyland” and “Jungle” have been restocked. Plus a new batch of hand painted merino rovings and a set of drum carded super fine 18 micron merino-silk batts are out and displayed, all available in my etsy store

 

 

 

 

The space dyed wool roving in fire red/yellow/brick is finally (!!) back in my ebayUK store, and so are the 24 micron merino wool rovings in deep raspberry pink, sky blue, deep red, bright yellow, and aubergine purple!

All 48 colours of the soft 24 micron mulesing free merino roving can be found in both my etsy store and my ebayUK store:

As to the current custom orders: All deadlines for January will be met guys! :o)
That´s all for now. Everyone enjoy the winter season and HAPPY FIBER CRAFTING.

September update

This month I have not been painting a lot of rovings because my new bulk of greasy fleeces arrived, and I am washing, sorting and dipping away like there was no tomorrow. :o) But in the evenings I sat behind my spinning wheel and created some very lovely and colourful chunky yarns, they are all displayed in my etsy store:

 

 

Plus all standard merino-silk batts are also fully stocked and displayed. Fleece wise, once I have finished washing these babies, there will be extra soft Bluefaced Leicester curly fleece and beautiful curly wensleydale fleece. There are so far about 15 lbs washed and sorted….and just another 80 lbs to go…. I think it´s time to turn on Loreena McKennitt to boost up my motivation … ;o)

July fibers, dolls hair and more

My goodness, time flies, I know I keep saying that but it´s so true. The month is almost over, and new fibers and yarns have made it out of the dyepot and off the bobbins, here are some of them:

These pretty babies have been distributed in my etsy store, ebayUK store and DaWanda store. There will be more undyed wensleydale curly fleece in natural black and single curls for dolls hair, felting and handspinning in various colours very soon.

I painted, carded and spun a very soft and lovely bluefaced leicester/merino yarn which will be part of a new crocheting project – no, not another beanie hat :o)

But, one new slouchy beanie is ready for display though, yay! :o)  I handspun a pure merino single yarn for it:

 

That´s all for now. Everyone have a beautiful, creative and safe summer! Take care.

Fleece, yarn and a grand sunset

We have had the worst storm for the past 3 days, I thought I would loose my mind with all the rattling noise and howling wind around the house, day and night with no break. When the weather finally settled yesterday evening we were granted one of the most beautiful post storm sunsets I have ever seen up here in the mountains, it was breathtaking, I hope it comes across a little in the photo:

Now that the storm is over,  just for a change we are now getting tons of snow, it´s snowing, and snowing….and snowing. The snow is actually quite lovely when you don´t need to get in the car and plough your way through it. Kitty is having a ball, digging for poor little mice (she ain´t getting them anyway, they are too clever).

Today I am staying indoors, I am working on 2 custom orders of handpainted BFL fleece and handspun thick and thin yarns. I have been restocking my extra soft handspun thick and thin merino yarns in my ebayUK store (prices are viewable in US $ and British £ through this link) and the super soft 20 micron single colour and rainbow merino wool rovings in my etsy store:

Everyone, have a lovely and creative winter season. Keep warm and healthy, and take regular breaks from the fast pace of life.
