Oh my!!!

I just listed some yarn I experimented with. I think it turned out fabulous!

I plied one of my handspun skeins with some thread that I beaded. After I plied it I realized I needed to dye it and decided to go with light blue. It is beautiful!!!

Another experiment was some merino and mohair. I spun up some merino one ply. Then I spun up a mohair/merino blend. The mohair was so shiny and I wasn't sure how it would dye. Well.......... it stayed super shiny and also photographed really well!

Now for some lucky person to purchase and make something amazing with them! Actually the two would work really well together because I used the same sky blue.

Anyway, I am off to go spin some bananas! Also known as superwash roving dyed with a variety of yellows. Hopefully I won't GO bananas!!!

Hey everybody!

I have been having WAY too much fun spinning yarn on my new Ashford Kiwi! First I was purchasing pre-dyed roving and batts to experiment with. I finally got up enough nerve to dye my own roving and WOW! How fun it is to create something from the very first steps! I will soon be posting instructions on "How to dye your own roving" and also "How to dye your own yarn".

Some of my yarn was recently featured on another blog
Bonghi Natura offers a wide variety of amazing soaps. They look delicious but the way they make your skin feel is even more amazing! I ordered a ton of stuff to give as gifts. (If I ever actually let them leave my possession that is)

Thanks for stopping by! Check back in soon and until then, check out my Etsy shop! It is fully stocked with amazing fiber fabulousness!!!
