Color Palette – Pink Agate

I’ve been playing with making color palettes from random photographs. This one ended up on a colorway that I called Pink Agate (although the more I compare the picture with the crystals I have, this looks more like a Rhodocrosite):

This is silk chiffon dyed for the feltmakers in mind.

New in the shop

Here is some eye candy. These pictures belong to my latest shop update. And why I’m so excited about this update? Because my list of domestic breeds offered at my shop is growing! I’m already have a wonderful Rambouillet that is a dream to spin and felt, then I added the Targhee that is equally wonderful. Now I’m also have the Superwash version of the Targhee and last but not the least, I have a beautiful Domestic Merino that takes the dyes wonderfully.

The Superwash Targhee was so much to fun to work with. It literally drinks the dyes:

Along with this updated I also included  some Humbug BFL top. I love how the color mixing of the ecru and natural browns gives a nice heathery effect.

And the last two products to my addition are two fun fiber blends that I’ve been playing with lately. I’m planning to post a tutorial about how to use it for felting because it has been a lot of fun using it to make felted scarves.

Forest Jewels is a blend of Merino in bright colors of turquoise, magentas, greens with Soy Silk.

Peacock is a blend of Bamboo and Merino in blues, greens and magentas with brown. The colors are deep and beautiful.

New February Update!

I’m liking this update a lot. One of the reasons is that, finally, my shop is starting to look decent again. I was feeling very sorry to even post anything on Facebook, since it was looking rather sparse. I’m hoping to do another in about a week with some awesome hand dyed sock yarn. Another reason that I’m excited about this update is that I have recreated some of the old colorways that have been my all time favorites. I tend to work on new stuff and I easily move onto other things that I’m excited about, forgetting wonderful old colorways. I’m reminded when a customer sends me a request and asks me to recreate them again. It was fun to go back to my sold items on Etsy from the beginning and pick and choose what to dye for this update.

Here is a sample of what I have posted today:

Feel free to check my shop at Beesybee Fibers on Etsy for more fun things to spin or felt with!

May Phat Fiber Theme ” Blossoms and Bark”

This month,  the boxes are going to be bursting with color. I have seen on Ravelry the pics of the contributors with great fibers, and rainbows of colors. You can also see the video of all the contributors on Youtube. Mine is in the video number two. My samples consist of Milk Protein Fiber and the colorway is Bougainvillea.

This is a flower that I’m very familiar with. As a child I remember my mom planting the tree near my window. It grew into a big tree, until a few years ago, a hurricane got rid of it. My mom never plant another one. By the way, people also plant this tree near their fences, because it keeps thieves away. Nobody wants to get caught up in between their terrible thorns.

I will have the full size for sale at my shop by tomorrow. And there is a surprise coming up soon, so stay tuned…

Shop Update

I just updated my shop with new items. I love the pretty colors of the roving and the teeswater is really a treat to work with. I’m having a hard time to letting go, but I already have plenty of fiber to work with.

I listed this colorway last week, but I didn’t have much time to post it here. Tesoro Magico is a blend of Merino and Tencel.

And the list for today starts with:

Ruffles which is very soft Merino Lambswool. Lots of bright colors in this colorway!

Bromeliad 100% Superfine Merino

Truffle 100% Superfine Merino

Split Pea I love this color. I had it in my shop a few months ago, so I recreated the color again. Thanks for looking. Have a great day!~

Note: As I was updating the blog, the Teeswater sold! But I still want to add a picture of the wool, just because is so pretty! Thanks Lush Mommy for purchasing it! Enjoy!

Hi there,

I just updated my Etsy shop, but I haven’t time to post it here. Warning!!!! The list is going to be long! I would like to start with Patina, because I made two versions of this colorway. One version is more saturated in color more that the other:

This is Patina with more intense colors. Blue Face Leicester. Very soft stuff…

Patina. And this is the other version, less intense than the previous one.

Aria. Sold. Blue Face Leicester

Terra. 100% Superfine, supersoft Merino

Blue Mountain. Merino. Great for felting.

Blossom. This is a blend of Merino-Tencel 50/50. I love the shine of this fiber blend

Leaf song. Sold. This is a special blend of Kid Mohair 63%, Merino 25% and Nylon 12%. Once this blend is gone, is gone!

I will be posting later tonight with more new colorways…
