Oooh Miss Barbara I can't wait to see if freestyle has pictures of your yarn! It all sounds so pretty!!
Here's the Box o' Fibre that freestyle sent me!! And I will apologize now for all of the pictures.. but I had to!
Sitting next to my serger on the kitchen table to give you and idea of size... big, really big box!
Group shot!! If I wasn't addicted before, I will definitely be addicted to spinning now! Oh and I had to stand on my bed in order to get the whole lot in the picture! Some closeups:
100% Alpaca from northstaralpacas.etsy.com I think the is the BF's favourite! He loves green! Oh and these were taken on my bed it was the biggest amount of clear space.... I left all the fibre on my bed to eat lunch and came into to make sure the kitty wasn't getting into it and he had snuggled right up against this fibre and fell asleep!
3 roving's dyed by freestyle L to R:
2 batts drum carded by freestyle and 1 bundle of hand pulled roving dized by freestyle
Top: Wool and Angelina
L: Superwash Merino, and Firestar
Handspun by freestyle, black/blue/green: alpaca, merino, silk, bamboo, merino, glitz. "Rapunzel" : merino, silk, glitz
"Bon Bon" samplers from natchwoolie.etsy.com there is so many different combos it would take too much space to list!
And this is what was in the white bag you can see in the group shot... Fibre samplers!!!
Angora, Yak, and Hemp. The Yak is surprisingly soft!
Firestar, Carbonized Bamboo, Silk, Bamboo and because I have been drooling over firestar and its shininess:
It's so sparkly!!!
Camel, wool/silk cloud, "EcoSpun" Recycled soda bottles. I was really excited to see the Camel and EcoSpun! My mom and I saw Camel's yarn at a knitting show but it was so expensive we didn't buy any, and the EcoSpun is actually quite soft considering what its made up of!
So there you have it! My huge box of fibre! Thank you so much again freestyle! You have definitely gotten me addicted... and I have already looked into making my own hackle at home so I can mix these samples of fibre together!!!
