Wow, I am so delinquent.
Anyway, I finally have pictures to share of my first two fiber club yarns (yay!).
First, May’s fiber… I just have to say that I love, love, love BFL. I think it’s probably my favorite to spin. Anyway, I decided to spin Cricket into singles, it’s a nice, shiny yarn and I can’t wait to knit with it. I just need to decide what to make. It’s about 127 yds heavy worsted weight:
And June’s fiber, Thistle… such an incredibly soft Merino! Wow. I spent a lot of time predrafting this one and it was totally worth it. I think this might be one of my favorite yarns I’ve spun, I love it to bits. It’s 166 yds of 2ply chunky/bulky weight goodness:
Now I just have to catch up on the rest!
You should all have your fiber by now, so I’ll post a reference photo of June’s fiber.
18 Micron Merino wool top
This stuff is crazy soft! I hope everyone likes it.
From now on, I’ll keep the dyes I mix up for the club fibers for a month or so, so that you may order more of a colorway if you like. Email to order and include your full name so I know who you are. This is only for club members.
Thanks! And enjoy.
Hi, everyone! I’m shipping this month’s club a little early, as I’m going on vacation tomorrow. I won’t be available from the 5th through the 13th, so expect a delay if you email, request to join the blog/Flickr group, or place an order.
I hope you all love this month’s fiber. It’s a new one, and delicious. As I mentioned in your package, this fiber will benefit greatly from pre-drafting. It’s very fine and clingy, but becomes light and fluffy and smooth as silk with a little prep. Newer spinners, try not to be afraid! When I learned to spin, no one told me that finer fibers were more difficult to spin and I chose a very fine fiber to start with and spun it with no problem.
See you next week!
