Natural fibers and more

I found out from 3 suppliers that prices will be raised August 1st. As new stock comes in the prices will be raised on all natural fibers as well as Louet and Fricke products. That’s the bummer news.

The good news is that I’m adding in new fibers. I have a ton more fiber in the shop than you ever see on the website. So I’m spending time in between dye batches today and tomorrow adding in new luxury fibers and more. Soon I will be carrying the colored Louet Merino Silk in stock.

In my down time, what little there is of it, I managed to finishe spinning and plying my Shetland for a project:
It’s 2 ounces of each of the 4 colors of shetland natural – Navajo plied.

And I got the Bison Bliss dyed with Cochineal:

I’m totally in love with that little skein. I just need to find the right lace scarf and I’ll have a new scarf for this winter.

  1. Okay, I’m totally dyeing mine with cochineal now too, but I’m going to mordant it differently. What did you mordant with?

    I bet I know what the Shetland is for.

    I love seeing cochineal used for dying. It grows wild around here and it is fun to see it being used.

    WOW, I LOVE the dyed Bison yarn!

    Doesn’t it figure that just when I’m ready to look for a new wheel, prices are going up – Pooh!

    I love the Shetland sampler, beautiful colors and spinning…and ditto on the bison. I may now have to try some natural dyeing…hmmm. Pretty excited too about the imminent arrival of more natural fibers!
