Happy Friday!
Jazzturtle:  Wow on Spring Chicken!
Grayling40:  Colors are Fab! What do you dye with?
Lufah:  Love the fabric strips.  Do you have a good inexpensive source for viscose? and how does it take wiltons dye?
Sensiblytacky:  You should start an Etsy site and sell your yarn!! And I know what its like to wait...I too had to stain my louet before I could use it (multiple coats too!)

I'm a newbie spinner and this is my first Fiber Friday! I've been a lurker for a long time and I finally spun something halfway decent so..
This is called "Purple Nurples." It's Corridale and was a little hard to draft because it stuck to itself.

This is Cafe a Laut. I spun it in my spinning class. I don't remember what type of wool it is but I don know that it's lambswool.

So that's all I've spun so far. I hope to be as good as you guys someday!

Oh the yarns.....I'm so quickly becoming a fiber fanatic. ^-~

I could just snuggle them all.

Lufah, I hear ya! I've got a stack of fabric just waiting to shred, but I've got to finish this silky piece first

I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.

Everyone's yarns look so great!

I have one more to add today.

This one is called Autumn Kisses, it's really similiar to Saharan Symphony, but the colours are a bit warmer. Theres oranges, red, greens, and yellow as opposed to just different shades of brown.

ooh  I love them all, especially the one with the feathers and grayling40s ones!

Grayling40:  Colors are Fab! What do you dye with?

Thanks! I use either Wilton's icing dyes or Kool-aid, but since you really can't get deep and rich colors with them, I sometimes card with fiber that someone else has dyed with acid dyes or just naturally-colored dark fiber. I can get some interesting colors with the Wilton's and Kool-aid, but the yarn is so much more vibrant when there's black or brown or navy blue mixed in there too.

I've had a busy week!  I had some Etsy sales and had to replace them.  I hope you enjoy.

Sunflowers - Corriedale -  Colors are deeper in person.  Golds, greens, browns and reds.

Beautiful Day - BFL - Again - colors are much deeper in person.

Strawberry Fields - Falkland Wool

Rich For It - Alpaca/Merino/Silk

My favorite - Fade To Nantucket - Falkland Wool - colors are richer in person

Thanks for looking
