No rest for the wicked though and immediately I flew back into the dye room to get started on more custom orders and yes, all the dyework I have to get done for the Bendigo show now only a mere 4 weeks away. I am very grateful the woodfire is behaving nicely so all the fibres and yarns can dry and I can spin in a cozy and warm room in my time away from the dye studio.
I am running a bit late today..so I won’t keep raving on about the stuff I am doing HOWEVER, I will mention what is on the books fibre wise for the Bendigo show! Because that way you can all make a kind of “wishlist” AND I can also tell you what is there that is so special I won’t guarantee I have a lot of stock of to last me til Sunday. So here it goes:
VICUNA ! yes, it took a LOT of hard hard work again but I managed to grab a tiny little bit of this GOLD and have put together an amazing blend. I only have a teeny weensy little bit ! Friday is the day to get your hands ont his “preciousnesss”
GUANACO : yes…yes!! Just when you though it could not get any better it does: I am over the moon with this blend I was able to make ! It is amazing. So if you are not able to get the vicuna : this is your fall back fibre if you want to spin something you have never been able to get your hands on before. It is super rare and can I just say: absolutely LUSCIOUS!!
