October fibers and mini batts

Freshly hand painted rovings of super soft falkland and merino fiber, handspun yarns, fleeces and hand carded batts are now displayed in my etsy store and in my ebayUK store.

This is just a brief update, I am still washing and sorting away the raw fleeces but I will take a break for Halloween!! :o)

Everyone have a wonderful autumn season, and Happy coming up Halloween!

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)

The new batches are distributed in my etsy store and ebayUK store (ebay prices are shown in US$ an GBP sterling).

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!

 

Fresh from the wheel and dyepot

Just a quick update on my new batches of handspun and handpainted yarns and fibers that are now displayed in my etsy store and ebayUK store  (prices on ebay can be viewed in US$ and British Pound). All yarns and fibers are exquisitely soft and so perfect for sensitive skin. :o)

Fleece wise I have also painted 2 more batches of wensleydale fleece and bluefaced leicester fleece for my DaWanda store (prices on DaWanda are in Euros).

 

Everyone, enjoy the lovely spring days, and Happy Fiber Crafting! :o)

Everyone have a very good spring weekend!

Yummy purple…and we have been featured…yay!

I have steadily been preparing for the Christmas holidays. All the presents are wrapped and well hidden, Christmas greeting cards mailed off, the Christmas dinner menu decided and thoroughly studied. But before I dive into the festivities I thought I should do one last purple dip before the year ends :o) So I hand painted some more wensleydale curls, another set of my very yummy super fine 18 micron merino/silk blend, and I also sat down behind my spinning wheel and finished another lot of my super bulky jumbo thick and thin merino yarn, which is perfect for giant knitting (any needle size of 25mm+ will do). Apart from that I washed one last bulk of english leicester fleece last night, and I will now give myself a well deserved fleece washing break until late January next year… or perhaps even longer… :o)

Some of my hand carded batts, that I also sell through my DaWanda store, have been featured in the 1/2016 edition of the german craft magazine “Simply Kreativ”. I am mighty proud of it, I dare say :o)
