They're coming...

I know it's a bit mean, posting sneaky previews like this, but I've been up to my elbows in dye and wool for the last couple of days and it's done something funny to my head. At least the results are pretty.

In amongst this carnival of colour are some delicious new luxury blends of fibre. There's some BFL/silk (gorgeous lustre), and some BFL/kid mohair that's so fuffy and soft I want to hug it lots. My family reckon I should add a tagline to all the Wildcraft fibres to say that 'every roving has been hugged'. While that's not entirely the case, I do love all of them, even the wayward fibres (that superwash can be quite an escape artist!), which is why it's so nice to see them move happily to new homes, particularly when they've been spun up.


The other fibres on the line there are superwash BFL (so soft!), BFL, shetland, oh and some Wensleydale. They'll be in the shop just as soon as they're dried, braided and photographed. Drying was taking ages, but it's just got really windy here, so that should speed things along a bit.

All that fiber. It's just beautiful. I'd hug them also.

No, it's not sneaky, it's beautiful. The colours look amazing.

Thanks for commenting on my blog so that I could find yours!!! Maybe I will learn more about dyeing as you have some gorgeous stuff!!! BTW, your links to your shop aren't working, I had to do a google search to find it.

Hey you're welcome bockstark.knits! Thanks for the heads up about the links too, I think I've fixed them now.
