I just finished updating my shop. I added Polwarth dyed in Gradient Progression, Mix BFL (sooo soft) and know I carry jumbo knitting needles both circular and single pointed.
Yesterday I did a shop update . I love to overdye the brown Merino which gives beautiful earthy colors that reminds of the English Tweed. By the way, this merino is sooo soft!

4/3/10 New Shop Update
This morning I was able to add a few items in my shop:
Sweet Pea. This is dyed with Cochineal that I got in Oaxaca last month. The fiber is a blend of 80% Merino and 20 % Tussah silk.
Moss Rose Same blend as above. Very soft. Tussah silk is also known as wild silk because the worms live in the forest where they feed from different kind of trees. The silk is harvested after the moth emerges from the cocoon. The caterpillars are giant and the color of their silk varies due to their variable diet.
Long Day. Soft and cuddly Blue Face Leicester
Parrot. Rayon form Bamboo. Great for blending with other fibers.
From now on I will be posting all my shop updates in this section. It makes more sense… So I will start with a new fiber that I just got in my shop. Yeaaaahh! I’m in love with Polwarth wool. This breed of sheep was developed in Australia in the late 1800’s. It is a cross breed of one quarter Lincoln and three quarters Merino wool. If you feel like reading more about this breed you can visit this website. And now to my updates, because I’m very excited about the new colors:
Alice in Red. 100 % Polwarth. I liked the dress that Mia Wasikowska wore while “visiting” the Red Queen in the movie Alice in Wonderland. I really enjoyed the movie by the way! And I wanted to create a colorway with that same intense red.
Toy Story. Playful colors of blue, pinks, greens and yellows.
Mai Tai. It is so hard for me to pick up a favorite! I really would like to spin them all!
First Date. Something sweet that takes you to the time when problems and bills were nonexistent…
There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter.
