Spun freebie by Kat

Spun by Kat, the parcel got all the way to America! She has spun 2 lots, one being navajo-plied and the other thick and thin singles. Thank you to everyone who has participated with the spinning as I am really impressed with all the spun results, this is a really positive result, keep sending in comments and photos please. Kat both are very pretty, I particularly like the navajo-plied one!

Spun freebie by Jo

Pictures from Jo, the fibre sample looks gorgeous and I really like the combination of the eyelash yarn with the spun wool. Stats - 7 wpi, and 23.6yds of fibre goodness. I am now researching possible websites to sell my wares from, does anyone have any tips/ideas on the best type of site to sell fibre from e.g. Etsy shop, Mr site website etc?

Sirdar Blur Shrug

My next project is a Sirdar Blur Shrug, I will be using Sirdar Blur yarn in the 'Indigo' colour (708). I got the yarn from The Black Sheep Ltd. I am now about 90% complete on the Baltic Stole and looking forward to my next project!

Spun freebie by Anne

Here are pictures of the sample sent to Anne, 25wpi, 200yds, approx 40-50gms, single ply - gorgeous! I love how the marine blue from Omega Dyes looks much more subtle than on the dyed roving.

Spun freebie by Artis-Anne

Here are the first piccies from Artis-Anne of some of my free fibres spun up! I am now getting really informative feedback on whether to start an internet fibre shop! This sample weighed approx 40gm and using several different techniques -(slubby yarn, light Aran weight, Lace weight) Anne got about 52 yds of 2 ply yarn. I love the Malachite colour, and the barber pole effect with the white, I agree with Anne, the colour is very intense and I think it looks great!
