Firestar Samplers ~ They're Back!!!

I've been back in the dye kitchen and I've made a big batch of Firestar Samplers. These have become so popular. Everytime I make these samplers I increase the batch size and they still sell out on me before I know it!

This listing gives you 3oz of Sparkling Firestar. You'll receive .25oz of 12 different colors. I've included all of the colors in the rainbow and a few in-between!

The colors include: Violet, Gold, Green, Burnt Orange, Fire Red, Ecru, Sapphire Blue, Silver, Bronze, Spruce, Pink and Gypsy Wine

What is Firestar? It's a sparkling nylon fiber, created like roving with a generous (around 4") staple length. It can be spun on its own for a shimmering skein of yarn that would be stunning for warm weather garments. More commonly, it is used to add sparkle to projects. A little Firestar can go a long way. Simply tease loose the fibers and introduce them sparingly to your roving as you spin. The end result will be a skein of yarn full of lustrous shine. Firestar blends incredibly well with other fibers and will even needle felt!
