Banana and Bamboo: Eat it? NO: Wear it !

there is Good news and there is bad news: Bad news is that I haven't had any time to do any Funky Bunny batts, but GOOD news is that you will get an overload of Plant fibres this week ;) BAMBOO and BANANA. If you have never tried spinning these fibres please know you are missing out on something Divine ! Bamboo and banana fibres are high in lustre, extremely strong, feel very silky and very soft to the touch (They are excellent in summer or when you are in tropical temperatures) and above all they are very ecologically friendly ! What more can you ask for? For those of you who do not spin: I have spun up some banana in two colour ways and kept some aside undyed as well . There is also Bamboo yarn in three different colourways and natural as well. As always you can email me or send me a message and I will get the adoption papers ready for you :) Have fun looking at the plants !

Easter Bunnies and chocolate

We are coming up to a bunnies most exciting part of the year - Easter!!! We're talking chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, chocolate wombats (seriously!) - did I mention chocolate!?! Mmmm, mmmm. Of course it has its consequences - slow, sluggish ixchelbunny with a chocolate smeared face - not a pretty sight! If you want to get through to a chocolate affected ixchelbunny on those days please don't approach her wearing anything that could be mistaken for colourful foil wrapping and don't make any sudden moves that could be interpreted as a jump start on an Easter Egg hunt. Following these simple safety precautions will make it possible for you to stalk these newly made Easter bunny fibre pretties safely :)
Have a super fun Easter and
Happy Easter Bunny Fibre Hunting !
