yay, Fibre Friday!!

I have been nearly absent, but am always drooling over the great yarns you all spin!

Some of my most recent ones:

Grey elegance, handspun Alpaca/Tussah silk 2ply with freshwater pearls and sequins

Hippie chick and a sequined version of it, both scrap yarns:

Simply pearls, grey Merino with pearl beads:

...yeah, I guess I am on a bit of a grey+pearls=elegance trip. Cheesy

And last but not least my interpretation of pop/dance singer Lady Gaga as an art yarn:

Lots of silk, glitz and sequins.... mainly inspired by a daring light blue outfit in one of her videos, lol. Oh, and how about blonde goat as her hair? Cheesy

Hellooooo Friday! Smiley
There are some real colour explosions going on in this thread already!
The cloud yarn looks like fun and I love how intense Pixi garden is.

My new yarns for the week are:

Grey pearl, a Merino and silk yarn with real freshwater pearls, glass beads and sequins:

Gwydolwyn, a tweedy wool and soy silk yarn with lots of added beads and more:

Some more organic cotton:

Blue handspun, hand dyed soy silk:

I spun quite a bit more, but they still have to be washed to set the twist, perhaps next week. Tongue

No need to kick, here I am again. Cheesy

I have recently been in the mood for thin, summery silk and soy silk yarns, like these:

Green hand dyed and handspun soy silk:

... and Firenze, a pure hand dyed Tussah silk

I also spun a few artier yarns:

Cocoon, Merino/silk with linen

Electric indigo, Hand dyed Merino wool with Wensleydale locks

The green flash, Merino/silk with gem stone beads


yay! I love fibre fridays. Smiley

Hi everyone, nice to be back!

Natasha, I absolutely love your first yarn, stunning patterns.

Gosh, but there are so many great yarns already.
It would take too long to add all the ones I spun since my last post, hehehe, so here are just two of my latest yarns.

Sushi yarn, Black handprocessed Alpaca, white Tussah silk, red Falkland wool with Angelina sparkle and the most stunning sushi beads hand made by Fancyguppy on etsy:

Red hand dyed 2ply silk, took forever to spin:

Pretty, pretty, pretty! My favourite is the one with the japanese silk scarf and the light blue ply, absolutely gorgeous!

I have been feeling unwell the last couple of weeks, so I was not as productive as usual, but here are two of my most recently finished yarns:

Hint of gold: A simple but elegant falkland wool yarn from my first order of DHF wool (http://www.falklandwool.com):

Starstruck: An extravagant and glamourous art yarn with sequins, fabric stars, lots of beads and mother of pearl discs:

Wow, I am loving all the core spinning this week!

My favourites have to be Umesha and Twila, although I love hello sunshine as well, heck Liz you just really put up some beauties this week!

Repo, your second yarn is quite a stunner, and in a strange way I even quite like the pink yarn.... Cheesy

And noodle princess, that first corespun is really beautiful!

Anyway, I missed last week so here some of my most recent additions:

Rokoko, a Merino/silk yarn with over 75 real freshwater pearls:

Indiana Jones and the temple of wool, a fun yarn made of Merino, mohair and wooden beads plied with some boucle thread:

Here just some natural soy silk (I love it, I love this stuff so much):

Heavenly pearls, another Merino/silk yarn with pearls and sequins spun in:

This was quite funny, I wanted to take a picture of this silk and baby camel yarn and saw how well it matched my vintage pillow! It is silk as well, so I might have as well shredded that, lol.

...and here is the latest batch, need to take better pictures soon (the one on the left is corespun baby camel, just so I can feel I fit in with the crowd, hehehe):

Here is some more detail about the latest yarns, lots of silk, baby camel and soy silk!

Yeah, Rocky road is awesome! I also really loved the secret garden. Smiley
I loved all the colours this week and there have been a lot of pretty funky art yarns, which is always great! It really stands out that many people's mojo has returned!!

A bit late, but here is some of my spinning for the week:

This would be a 'new and improved' version of an old yarn of mine called frog prince. This time it is far more over the top with lots of beads in addition to all the other stuff!

Also, it was a great week for vegan yarns and I really got the hang of soy silk now, here one hand dyed in greens:

...and a hot pink one with pearls!

A really exciting experiment (definitely to be repeated!) was pink berry truffle, a pure Tussah silk yarn with huge, fluffy blobs of baby camel:

I guess it has been quite a green week overall, with Lemon verbena:

...and Lime dazzle:

Exotic fruits rule my world! Cheesy

Last but not least goldfish in the sky, a Merino/silk yarn with coils:

Gorgeous yarns already, I can't even decide on a favourite.... Cheesy

This week I was quite busy, but a lot of yarns are still waiting to have their twist set.
I concentrated a bit more on art yarns and vegan/plant based alternatives to wool and silk yarns.

Lady in Red:

all this became:

Creamy cotton:

Campari Orange, Merino with Mohair locks:

Some gorgeous soy silk and fluffy ocean themed art yarn should be ready by next Friday. Smiley

Hi, I'm a little late for the party, but since I haven't taken part in so long....
There are so many beautiful skeins here again this week! And everyone has been so prolific!

Well, here are some of my most recent yarns:

Golden girl, natural golden Tussah with Merino and lots of golden 'stuff':

Hippie Love, a hand dyed Merino with lots of happy flower beads:

The butterfly and the stone, Grey Merino with colourful Mohair and wrapped in a cotton boucle thread:

A lovely pastel-y hand dyed pure Tussah silk:

One of my new favourites, 'sparkly poodle' a Merino/silk yarn with sparkle and plied with boucle thread - so luxurious and soft! To me this should become a 40s style stole, resembling a fur stole just far more animal friendly. Smiley

One ply hand dyed Tussah silk, the other hand-processed and hand dyed Suri Alpaca (so much work!):

And here I present: Indiana Jones and the raiders of the lost yarn. The temple of wool is already in the making...

Also, I went to visit my parents last week and brought back lots of Alpaca fibre from a local farm, here is a quick impression of a total cutie:

This results in Alpaca yarn, obviously, and the one that's already nicely finished and washed is this one (Pure baby Alpaca, so incredibly soft!):

I hope this was no picture overkill, hehehe...
Right off the bobbin is some Baby Alpaca carded with Tussah silk, I could live in this! Perhaps I should knit a house from it... Cheesy

That scrap yarn is huge! Very impressive!

I haven't participated in a while so here is an update:

Part one of my new boys toys series: Cars (next is tools)

Blue princess featuring 4 different colours of sequins and other shiny things:

A self-striping 2 ply yarn made from plant dyed wool:

Liquid gold, an old favourite of mine which I have spun again, pure hand dyed tussah silk:

Purple sea monster, mainly bues and greens but little bits of purple on Merino/silk (50/50):

Steppenwüste, a fun yarn made from Leicester locks, green cotton, 2 types of linen and hemp:

...and last but not least something a little different to my usual yarns, the Queen of Acid punk, a really bright 2ply yarn with coils:

Plus there are a few yet to be photographed, which could all be classed as 'Ultimate luxury'.... sparkly, silky and fluffy!
