I finally took the plunge and got a drum carder! He's a big beastie ❤️ this beauty is the only art batt I created today in the midst of about 10 fleece batts (I got overexcited, there was wool everywhere) and I can't wait to spin it up. Filled with beautiful hand dyed silks and organic fleeces from those beautiful pastel Teeswater curly locks to gorgeous aqua Blue Faced Leicester wool, cottons, Shetland wool, and of course some teal Angelina sparkle, because no art batt is complete without sparkles! You'll be seeing more regular shop updates now with even more inventive and textural yarns, and of course lovely farm fresh yarns ❤️
Hand dyed superwash merino/nylon sock/fingering weight! These skeins were put in the dye pot with another colourway to soak up the remaining/extra dye! ❤ I love working like this because it gives me the freedom to add as much dye as I want to the first colourway without worrying about whether it will exhaust...and the 'shaddow' colourways always turn out beautifully as well!
As well as what's currently in the shop, if you ever see a one of a kind yarn you'd like to add to your order but it's sold out, just get in touch. I'll do my best to recreate any yarn, but with its own new tones and quirks to make it totally yours. Like this chunky Shetland skein, recreated this weekend for a customer ❤️
It being Thursday and all, how about a throwback? I can't imagine how I knit all that lace with some of the scratchiest yarn ever, and I'm guessing with bamboo needles. Apparently I was made of stronger stuff three years ago.
