New fibre

Here is the yummy scrumptious fibre I purchased yesterday from John Arbon Textiles shop in Lynton…

Top left: Merino/silk called Toot Sweet

Top right: KBN (Knit by numbers)* Burgundy

Middle right: Harvest hues in Bracken

Bottom: each in its packaging.

The natural white is the fibre domination John uses for the Stanbury Walker socks. It’s merino, blue faced Leicester and nylon.

I tried to go for colours that I have less of which meant no ocean colours for once. I adore ocean coloursΒ  πŸ˜ƒ I want to build up a collection of different colours of handspun for colour work.

    1. Aww, thank you very much. I spun the Toot Sweet today, it’s lovely πŸ™‚ At least snow makes things brighter. Over here in the south west U.K. it was very dull today. Thanks for popping by 🌹🌻🌼❀
