I have some super yummy woolies to share with you today. Surprised? Did you think you had lost me to hiking and taking nature photos? Never fear, I have been busy at my wheel, even if I haven’t been posting much about it lately.
Today’s treasures are both dreamy Falkland wool. The first, pictured on the left, is “Dragon Scales” by Southern Cross Fibre. I chose to spin this across the top and N-ply for a nice DK weight yarn. I love the wonderful jewel tones and this fiber is so dreamy soft. The second, pictured on the right, is “Nausicaa” by Nest Fiber Studio. This bump, I chose to split lengthwise once and spin each piece tip to tail for quicker color changes. I also chose this to be a fulled single as I already have big plans for it (that is if it doesn’t sell at the farmer’s market tomorrow).
I also wanted to share with you some treasures that came in the mail today. The fiber is the October club shipment from SCF in a colorway call “And Your LIttle Dog Too” on Organic Merino (can anyone guess what classic this was inspired by?) and the September club offering from Spunky Eclectic in a colorway called “Dorset” which is also the fiber type. This is my first experience with Dorset so I am quite excited to try it. I am also slowly but surely adding to my resource collection and am happily checking out my new copy of “The Spinner’s Book of Fleece.” Just from the quick little look-through, I have already picked up some new tid-bits.
What crafty fun have you been up to? Have you picked up any new crafting supplies or resource books yourself? Do tell!
