Sometimes timing can be cruel! Just yesterday I received the shipment I've been waiting for. A 35 pound box arrived at my door fill with gorgeous fibers! There's an 80/20 blend of Merino and Tussah Silk, a 50/50 blend of Merino and silk and I also order 100% Tussah Silk Top. I just can't wait to get my hands on it. I have a blend of Alpaca, Merino and Silk as well and it feels amazing!
I'm going to start selling ecru yarns for the people who like to dye their own. I have a beautiful brushed mohair, a straight merino, a thick and thin soft wool and a playful boucle. I'm hoping to find the time to dye some of this up myself!
I'll be introducing a new nylon called Snow Mountain. I'll be selling it as an ecru for dyers, but I'll also be dyeing up some colors for the shop. I like the idea of offering a fiber that's light and easy care for the warm weather months. I know some of you may be asking "What about cotton?" The truth is I just don't enjoy dyeing or spinning cotton. I don't like the shrink factor or that it doesn't stay as color fast. As much as I love natural fibers, cotton is not among them. I'm sorry cotton lovers.
And for all of you who have become fans of Firestar. I just got in a ton. Well not literally a ton, but a whole bunch. We'll be sparkling all Spring with the inventory I just received!
The cruel timing of it all is that I have to go out of town for five days. All of this amazing fiber sitting in my studio and I have to wait?!* Ugh!
