I finished a little project I set for myself to spin a non-wool yarn. I was pretty excited about it too. Its dyed tussah silk, carded with glitz, bamboo coils and sari silk handspun then plied with a matching nylon thread. Would you believe those are the same colors I dyed this yarn with? It's interesting how different fibers take dyes so differently. I would love opinions, tell me what you think!
This here is something I hope to get posted to the store later tonight. I took bits and pieces of fibers and created a eclectic fiber sampler mix. These are a random selection of fibers from my personal stash intended for the adventurous type. Basically, for those who want to feel touch and try a bunch of fibers but have no intentions of buying several ounces at a time.
Lots of fibers, uncarded bamboo, angora, corriedale, and coopworth to name a few. I'm thinking it will be good for a felter who just needs a few accouterments or a spinner who wants to card bits of color into things. Plus, taking the picture with a basket was cool! (ummm, no basket is not included!=P)
