Exotic tops and new clubs !


Another busy week: heaps of dyeing of the feb clubs and updates and some rare sheep breeds. Safe to say I haven’t left the dye room and the studio, except to do some bunny grooming and water the veggie patch. I am very happy to announce that the February clubs will be all ready to ship early next week. Yippee!!!!  Apart from working loads and loads I have not really done anything else. Well I am not counting listening to audiobooks while doing my dyeing and blending or trying to keep up with the world news that is both terrifying and totally hilarious at times, resembling to be more like a surreal tv show than anything else. Terrifying, because there are lives and real people at stake; if only the politicians were aware of that while playing their power games.


There are so many things still left to do to get back on track after  I was so sick last month but  I have to be careful not to give myself an anxiety attack..lol..hey, there are only so many hours in the day and night. It is a bit of a relief that I am slowly but surely getting better and catching up on all the custom orders and my dye schedule. I had a huge amount of plans that still are way down the list though, like organizing my website. Yes, it is still on the cards for 2017…fingers crossed ! lol

For this week I have something special planned and super soft too: Camelbunny silk tops! This blend is so super soft and silky ! Wonderful to spin and work with !

Also, the new club sign ups are here! There are spots available in the Fibre, batt and sock yarn club starting up again in April. Don't wait too long to sign up: there are limited spots available and you defenitely do not want to miss out on receiving a surprise every month for three months !

All the information on how to order are to be found on the bottom of this blog entry.

Have a wonderful weekend !!!

a Cool Valentine Update in a Heatwave


What a busy busy week ! All the January clubs have all been shipped out on monday together with  lots and lots of custom orders, with a couple still to be finished by wednesday and then...then...it's time to get the ball rolling again with the february clubs :-)

I have posted all the photos of the clubs on my IxCHeL facebook page and Instagram, so please feel free to have a look! The teaser of the feb club label will be posted in the next couple of days. The theme of the whole of 2017 is "Fantasy"  !

I am slowly but surely getting better, but it is still wayyy too slow to my liking. At least my voice is getting back but singing is still a no go and I'm still on medication , which does not allow me to have a super cool cider or wine in this super hot heatwave we are experiencing. Even here in the mountains where it is normally way cooler than anywhere else in the suburbs or the city, it is mid 30s Celsius. I should not complain becasue I heard that there are people out there having to deal with temps as high as 44C ! So yeah, I thought , people must be thinking I am out of my mind doing an update trying to sell wool when everybody just wants to stay cool ! yep, taht's me! I remember I was at a Gembrook Market way back and it was 40C, no customers, all teh stallholders were putting an icecold towel on their necks becasue it was THAT hot and  there I was, trying to sell my wool and yarn.. LOL  aaah  nothing ever changes...

If you want to be enticed during a heatwave just before Valentines day though what can possibly do that. And, with a stroke of fibery genius, I thought FLING! Ofcourse!!! my Cashmere Fling blend! It is silky, super smoochy soft, COOL to the touch and slinky and spins and knits up like a dream ! So that is what I have been working on this week to offer to you : Romantic super cool fibery flings!

Cashmere Fling Tops

Cool and silky with a wonderful drape !

100+gram tops AU$23
