Today we have been washing some sheep and alpaca fleece. It's been slow going today so I am sure there will be many more days of washing.
I thought I'd share a couple of custom yarn orders I've dyed recently.
"Jamie" on Obsidian Fingering
"Ludo" on Granite Sock (yes, this yarn was inspired by Ludo on Labyrinth -- there will be a Labyrinth mini swap coming up soon on Ravelry and one of the swappers wanted yarn to represent Ludo) She liked it so well she ordered 2 more. I haven't pictures of those yet.
Almost forgot I spun this skein of handspun for a customer. Kaylina dyed the fiber -- it is "Park Bench" on Polwarth.
The theme for Phat Fiber's box this June is Ice Cream Social. We had a gazillion ideas and changed our mind a million times. We finally decided on "Strawberry Ice Cream". This is a yummy mix of Superfine Merino and Cheviot. Some of the batts have added sparkle and some have Wensleydale locks. I absolutely love how the Superfine Merino and Cheviot blends together. They work perfectly together. I've been spinning a sample on my drop spindle and it is just wonderful! I'll post pictures after I get a little more spun. I'll be posting full size batts on Etsy soon.
"Strawberry Ice Cream"
Isn't this batt amazing. Kaylina dyed it a couple of weeks ago and put it aside. Last night she made it into a smooth batt. It consists of Falkland, silk, bamboo, firestar and angelina. I listed it on Etsy last night. Although, if it doesn't sell soon, the temptation to spin it may overwhelm me!
Today, I also listed my popular Vintage Rainbow mini sets on Jasper Fingering. They have been a hit on Granite Sock and I thought I'd see how they would be received on Jasper Fingering.
Thanks for taking a glimpse of our recent fiber adventures. Off to wash more fleece!
