New Yarn, Shop Update.

More time I tell you, I always need more time! 🙂 Listed tonight, I can rest easy.

 Mohair is better than Nohair

Feel free to smack me around for making such a lame joke. 🙂

I kettle dyed 100% mohair roving bits in a deep rainbow of colors using acid dyes before handspinning it into 102 yards of single ply yarn. WPI=11.

Etsy Updates!

I’ve been busy trying to keep new items in my Etsy store, I need more time! Always more time it would seem!

Moon Mist-I handpainted merino blend roving using acid dyes in shades of gun metal blue, pink and lilac, leaving some of the original cream color of the wool peeking through. I handspun it into 232 yards of single ply yarn. WPI=11.

Frammin’ On The Jim Jam-I handpainted merino blend roving using acid dyes in shades of bright yellow, hot pink and orange to create this colorway. I handspun it into 274 yards of single ply yarn. WPI=11.

Rainbow Smoke (Sold)-I kettle dyed six bundles of merino roving with acid dyes and carded each color with some dark gray merino fleece. I pulled the batts into roving and spun each color in a rainbow sequence to create this single ply yarn. Total yardage for this skein is 160 yards. WPI=10 to 11.

More soon to add to my existing stock! You know, providing I can stay awake long enough to keep the kettles going! 🙂
