It's the Fiber of the Month Club Craftster Style!
ALL FIBER IS WELCOME!! Carded batts (including hand carded rolags), commercial roving (so long as it's hand dyed), and dare I say, loose fibre?

Keeping with the theme, another swap just like this will open in April, and then the third in May. And even more to come if the interest keeps up!

I took a solemn oath not to join more swaps till I get some other stuff done around the house.  And then this one appears!!  Cry

I'll try and hook up with you in April or May.   Roll Eyes

Very tempting.  I'm going to try my hand at dying some undyed wool roving the weekend of the 9th/10th (after midterms!), and if that goes well I'll join up. Smiley

Temptation! I have some undyed superwash that I've been waiting to dye. I'm a newbie to dyeing so I'll practice and see where it goes.

You may want to post a topic in the fiber boards to get some more participants. I'm sure felters would join up too.

This felter would love to join in - but I am not so sure about my dying abilities - and I have way to much going on right now.  I have two shows to prepare for and am trying to refurnish/ organize my apartment. I should not even be looking at the swap thread.
