I received a fantastic swap package from superhooker this evening!  A 4 oz braid of mixed wools she dyed and titled "Spring in the air!" Smiley  The colours do remind me of Spring, and I can't wait to spin it.  I apologize for the poor quality of the picture, but I'm excited to show you gals what she sent! 



Thanks for swapping with me superhooker! Smiley

I received the most yummy looking fiber from Zombie_Queen! Seriously, this looks so good I want to eat it up! Plus I absolutely love the cute card that was included! I already framed it and took it to work, so I don't have what type of fiber this is with me, but it is very soft :-)

Thank you so much Zombie_Queen!!

Yay! So glad you liked it. I was worried because this is one of my first times dyeing. But, overall, I'm pretty happy with the job I did. Oh and the fiber is falkland top.

lapoil- Now that you mention it, it does remind me of ripe mango. ::drools::

I received my other squishy fiber package this evening...from YarnWranglerC!  Gorgeous, incredibly vivid colours Smiley It's a BFL roving she named "Ornamental Magnolia", and without further ado...a picture! 



Another colourway that reminds me of spring...I'm seeing a pattern here!  YarnWranglerC, thanks so much for swapping with me!!

I FINALLY have photos of the wonderful fiber Nesse sent me!

The full package!


The awesome card, is it some handmade paper?


And the lovely fiber.  It's some of the softest nylon ever, the color is SO me, and it's just fantastically soft!


thanks Nesse!  I love it!  =)

suhweet! I'm glad you like it! the card was made from "ATC blanks" I got in a swap with sugaree. they're cardboard food boxes cut up, and I glued some handmade-esque paper onto the printed side. it's also stamped with handmade stamps! (made by sheepblue and myself).

okay you two, I have to ask - are your photographs a good representation of the color? this was my first time dying nylon (ok, the second, but the first time doesn't really count) so I'm just wondering if it really did fade that much. here's the picture I took:

Your picture definitely captures the color better Nesse!  Unfortunately I couldn't take photos in natural light, and I think nylon is one of those fibers that really soaks up the sun.

It seems to be a little softer than your picture, but I'm thinking I got the back one, which has more periwinkle in it. 

Either way I loves it!  Grin

Your photo is better for the color!  I don't get much sunlight time for photos so they're not always that great for color representation.

It's actually baby Llama .. did I write the wrong thing on the card?? *blush*

The Milk is such a new fiber and it's fun to play with!  The un-dyed fiber smells like fresh milk too Smiley

I'm glad you like them!

I received from Ariaya last week and finally have a minute to post photos.  I think my pictures are a little washed out but the fiber is gorgeous!!

The whole package


Milk fiber (I can't wait to spin this, I never have!)


And the so super soft Baby Llama, definitely a favorite of mine!


Hey Ariaya, did you dye the milk fiber with protein fibers?  If so where did you get the undyed fiber?

Hey Ariaya, did you dye the milk fiber with protein fibers?  If so where did you get the undyed fiber?

The Milk fibers were actually dyed with the llama ... it's an animal protein so acid dyes work great Smiley  Undyed fibers came from Paradise Fibers for the Milk and .. umm .. Stitches West (I'll get the vendor name later) for the baby Llama.
