Details of swap:

This is a swap for fiber dyers. There are two swap options:

Option 1: choose ONE (1) of the following
- 4 oz. wool or mostly-wool roving/top
- 3 oz. of batts

Option 2: choose ONE (1) of the following
- 2 oz. luxury fiber (silk, bamboo, etc.) roving/top
- 2 oz. luxury batts

For this swap, you will be put in groups of 3. You will send dyed roving/top or carded batts to each of your 2 partners. You may send the same colorway to each of your partners, or you can chose different colors for them- like fiber clubs, the choice is yours. The type of fiber(s) you send is also your choice, though I ask you to please not send any rough fiber or fiber that your partners are allergic to.

SPECIAL EDITION TWIST: For this fiber swap, you will select an image as a basis of inspiration and will provide your partners with:
1. A copy of the image
2. A sentence or two about how it inspired you.

The image can be anything- a magazine photo, pic from the Internet, drawing, clipart, or anything else that strikes you. And your finished product doesn't have to look anything like it- it's just a starting point to get you thinking and give your partners a little insight into your artistic process.

.........

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Ah, spoken like a true fiber junkie Wink 
Or you could just check the box in as a 2nd piece of luggage (the baggage allowance is 50 lbs, no? Grin)
