Wooly Update

After playing around all night with my new blending board, I decided to list some of the rolag sets in the shop this morning! These are the first of many to come! Head to the shop here.

What are rolags and punis? They are pre-drafted fibers ready for spinning. Each rolag is carded on my blending board by hand. They are portable and spin up fantastic. They are like mini hand held fiber batts, thats how I like to view them!

Mini Spooky Update!

This morning I listed four Spooky Patchwork bags to the shop! I'm sad I didn't make an extra for me to steal but it's ok haha! Head to the shop here.

Also, guess what landed in the mail today?! The first order of superwash merino roving! This means I will be having a dye party tonight and a fresh new roving update tomorrow! I'm planning to do Bug Zapper and Pink Ochre colorways with these. I already dyed up Bug Zapper with some fibers I picked up yesterday for a test. This roving was a blend of sw merino, silk, nylon and sparkle.

Coming Soon!

Lots of new things are coming to the shop and I'm bursting with excitement! I have hand dyed roving coming back to the shop hopefully this weekend, all depends on if my merino top order arrives on time tomorrow. I can't wait to get some roving in the dye pots, I actually recently spun up one of my older hand dyed rovings and it brought back some happy memories.

Yesterday I was finally able to order a new piece of equipment for the shop... a wool blending board!! I'm stupidly excited about this tool. I have only used a drum carder (as well as hand carders) in the past and had those for several years. I was debating on getting a new drum carder but lately have been falling in love with all the puni making on instagram so I caved and decided to get a board instead (plus it was lighter on the wallet). I figured I would get more freedom with the board since I can sit on the couch vs. being stuck at a tale carding. My board will be here Friday!! Eep! I already have several pounds of merino top coming my from a sweet little farm in North Dakota. So I will be setting aside a day for just dyeing up all the wool for carding. Can you tell I'm excited?! And yes, this means I will have carded fibers back in the shop again shortly!

Tomorrow I will be sewing up Halloween patchwork bags for the shop! Stay tuned for a spooky update, I will have 4 of these ghostly project bags available!
