The finished product, well, WOWSERS!!
It was used for the Just Be You shawl by Boo Knits and I have to say I'm in love! Such a pretty gradient.
So quickly, I'm needing to give you an update. Spankie Spun's almost sold out, if you want some of the yarn, please hurry. We have painted more of the roving and will be loading Rainbow and Indian Corn on the roving next week.
The list so far contains all these breeds:
Wensleydale lamb baby locks
bfl x cormo sooo soft
Teeswater XL locks
Rambolliet Cormo X
Plus all the roving we have on hand,
merino and merino blends
so that the box will contain both locks and roving.
Then when you fall in love with one we will have a few pounds left to purchase since we are attempting to buy just 5 pound increments. In some cases we purchased an entire fleece, but that’s a personal sort of thing. I can’t wait to play!!! What about you?
The Mini’s are now available to order from the Order Yarn Here page in a button all there own, just below there 100g skeins. Brand new we have 50g skeins of our Silver Shot Sock available, no more hanking from skeins. Also the merino cashmere sock will be here next week. We are getting cones to wind off 20 and 50g skeins of these to make gradients in. Now you will have THREE choices for your gradient sets.
Speaking of gradient of gradient sets… we have a OOAK 3 skein set which will be available first to our Instagram Peeps for 24 hours before we open it up everywhere else. This is a 50g set of 3 called Spring Heat Fade which is hand painted, multi colors and goes from a medium blue to purple… radically! It’s called Heat for the hot/fluorescent colors in it. Hop on over to our IG account (Yarn Fairy and the Pixies) for a chance at this lovely fade.
We have 2 others available from yesterdays dyeing, a lovely pale blue on Imp DK I’m calling Baby Blues, this skeins got a touch of pink or purple in it as well… lovely pale colors, weaving in and out but all very pale for a mostly solid look. The last is an Imp Sock also named Spring Heat as it has the same characteristics of the Fade. If anyone thinks they might be interested in the later 2 skeins, sight unseen, PM me.
As you can tell, yesterday was dye day, we will have a photo shoot on Monday, label on Tuesday and Cleo will be revealed shortly thereafter. As will a lovely G6 with turquoise border for Kaleidoscope. Amazing color! And a Phoenix fade from red to purple to blue, totally love it! So will all ya’ll who are on the receiving end of these new colors.
