The last few weeks have been filled with spinning , spinning and more spinning . Not only for custom orders but also in preparation for the shows and because I have had so many requests for the loooooong repeat colourways I sold so many years ago, I can offer you three different loooong repeat colourways in 4 ply and two colourways , excellent for shawls and weaving ! and a laceweight yarn with a huge meterage !!!
Or you could knit these amazingly cute mitts with the rainbow 4ply , just starting from the opposite scale of the colour spectrum when doing the intarsia !
I have not had time to dye my handspun pure 8 ply angora or the 3ply bunny mink (yet) but I didn’t want to deprive you , so I will offer it in virginesque white and naturals this week.
Have a fun weekend and happy spinning, knitting, weaving and crocheting !
