It’s beginning to feel like spring is definitely on the way at last, with sweet little snowdrops appearing and the first signs of daffodils poking up from their underground hiding places. I’ve been embracing all the colours of the new season in eager anticipation, and I think it definitely shows through in today’s shop update! There are greens, yellows and pinks galore, like a glorious array of new blooms!
The spinning fibre section of the shop has been restocked, and there are now 9 cheery braids awaiting you. There is mint, rose, seacell, soybean, tencel, abaca and ramie, plenty to tempt both novice spinners and those who fancy trying a more challenging fibre.
I’ve been creating some heavier weight yarns this week too, to appeal to those of you who aren’t lace knitters. I know I tend to spin fine yarns, so I have made a concious effort to remember that not everyone likes the same as me! These 2 ply skeins are either DK or worsted weight, and are so gorgeously soft they will be delightful to snuggle into.
There is soybean, mint, rose, and a gorgeous blend made up of rose, seacell, bamboo and tencel fibres which is exquisite, even if I do say so myself!
But I haven’t strayed too far from tradition, and there are also these fine weight yarns available too: 3 lace weight and 1 light fingering weight, in rose, bamboo, abaca and tencel
And there are still fibre sample cards available in the shop, ideal for those of you who haven’t come across some of these more unusual fibres in real life and who would like to be introduced to them. Perfect too as a source of inspiration for your next project!
That’s all from me for today, I’m off to watch some more of the winter olympics! Have you been enjoying the sport and dreaming of ski holidays as I have?
