Remember when we used to do Fibre Fridays?  And there were pages and pages of wonderful fibre posts?  That was fun! so why not?
I don't know if I've shared these ones before... but a lot of my yarns got glamour shots lately, so I'll share them!
This one is a merino singles. I dyed the fibre in top form and spun straight from that.


This is a merino 3 ply, that I hand carded the blend for


I cannot remember the blend of this one... but it's got corriedale in it - the magenta.  I also hand carded the rolls for this one


This one is Merino bamboo 80/20, with bits of sari silk for colour. I dyed the wool, and then put it through the drum carder.


Happy Fibre Friday!

Oh my gosh, they are all gorgeous. I have to resist the temptation to hoard all the wools simply because they are so beautiful and I waaaannnnntttt them. At least until I learn how to knit Cheesy.

thanks all! 

Hopefully I can keep up with the posting... I have like 10 yarns I haven't even taken pictures of.  I should manage, right?

Those are all so pretty and yummy looking! That first one totally matches the dye job in my hair, too Cheesy I kinda want to squish them all to my face because they look so nice.
