The thick and thin yarns are available in 60yd skeins but also in mini skeins of 4.5yds (4m) per colourway. These small quantities are very suitable for embellishing and felting projects or for dreads/hairfalls and doll hair, where less yardage is required. Here´s a crochet slouchy hat that I finished last week. It includes 3yds of the thick and thin yarn “Savannah”:

Everyone, have a very lovely spring season! :o)

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)
