In this week's store update, first, we have Finn also known as Finnsheep or Finnish Landrace. The great thing about Finn is that it has the semi-luster and softness of merino, but a longer staple length, about 3-6 inches. This is a great wool for all spinners; from beginners to experts. Also, it is great for a large variety of projects.
I also updated a few things that have been out of stock: black bluefaced leicester overdyed with indigo, madder, and cochineal. Bluefaced Leicester is a dream to spin. Black Bluefaced Leicester is a great variation to the classic white. The overdyes of madder, indigo, and cochineal add a bit of color without overwhelming the palette. I am dreaming of spinning the black bluefaced leicester overdyed with indigo and knitting the Falling Leaves Shawl by Katy Wight.
Then, finally, the creme de la creme: 50% Baby Camel / 50% Tussah Silk. au natural.
For some reason, whenever I am in a really bad mood, I want to give something free away. It's as if, maybe that would make someone else excited, and then their excitement would be contagious, and then I feel better. Does that make sense? I look at it almost like a good deed. Oh, and let me tell you, today has been that kind of day. The kind of day when all I really want to do is sit and knit, put the whole world on mute. But I have so much work to do. In one week, I leave for Oregon. I am hoping to sneak away and knit a bit for WWKIP on June 14th. Where will you be knitting?
Reply to this post, let us know how you plan to celebrate WWKIP day, on Tuesday night at 10pm PST, I will draw one name, and mail the winner a 2oz bundle of 50/50 baby camel - tussah silk au natural.
Good Luck! Soon!
