This is the first time I've ever had a stash!  I went to a needlecraft convention last weekend and picked up some pretty fiber to work with.



1 oz Colonial top in Slate  (I love this stuff, so soft, so nice, and easy to spin!)




1 oz Colonial top in Koala



30 silk cocoons (about 1/2 oz)




"Mystery Roving" I ordered from ebay ages ago.  Can't remember what it is, any help identifying it would be great!


So show me your beautiful stash of fiber!

Uh...

I'm sort of afraid to show it. 

I think I need an intervention.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.

Um, my name is Nutmeg and I, um, am a fiber addict...and I might think my yarn stash and my seperate fiber stash might be a problem for some but a serious good time for others...Gratz on starting your first stash. May it grow into something amazing and fun and scare your friends who have no  idea what it means to covet thy fiber goodness! Grin

Hi,
I enjoy looking at the wonderful yarns that the spinners spin on here, though I'm not a fiber person, but are those real life Cacoons???  Cooooool.  How do you work them?

My stash has reached frightening proportions, but as big as some of the spinners on here! I have seven pounds of raw wool, and as for the rest, roving and such... well, I lost track months ago.  Tongue

Here's pictures that I have on Flickr. Doesn't really begin to cover it.:

My stash is fairly big, and I'm discovering that much more of it ISN'T photographed than I thought. I'm trying to organize it today, so I'll probably do that then. for now, what is photographed is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebon/sets/72157603289533772/
