Big News!! A long-time dream of mine has been fulfilled - I get to host a carder bar up in LA at @altered_stitch Yarn shop AND an art yarn spinning workshop afterwards 😨😰😱 I'll be bringing the Beast (my double wide motorized drum carder) along with 50 pounds of luxurious wools, silks, bamboo, sparkle and art yarn add ins! For $50 you get a custom carded art batt, a 3 hour art yarn workshop and a chance to win the Sunset inspired art batt created for the shop. Create as many batts as you want for $40 per 4 ozs. If you don't have a wheel set up to spin art yarn, no worries - there's 5 available for rent thru the shop! If you're interested in joining, grab tickets through the altered Stitch website or comment here and I'll send you to the right place. Can't wait for this day to come for this day to come!!! #indiedyer#handdyedyarn#artyarn#artyarnworkshop#handspinner#spinner#spinstagram#spinnersofinstagram#handspunyarn#yarn#knit#knitstagram#knittersofinstagram
Working on a custom order for a very talented jeweler. She asked for a variety of yarns that could translate into feathers. And only a few yards of each. So I came up with this sample pack and it can be duplicated!
Both of these batts sold before they could be listed. I love batt making so much, I love dyeing the fibre, carding, selecting the additions and painting with fibre. I make my art yarns with the batts i make, so the ones we sell I put as much care into them as the ones I use myself. Thank you for your support and for loving the work we do. #handspinner#handspunyarn#fibreporn#specialfibre#artyarn#artbatt
I frogged two large projects from last year, so I've got a good supply of art yarn that I dyed and spun last season.
This summer, I taught myself a new process of spinning a single type of fiber then dyeing after I wash and let the yarn dry. The yarn is much thinner than my art yarn, so I'm ready to try plying soon. Feels like more of an autumn activity, but I might take my wheel out camping with us soon.
I'm getting more into process than product lately. It's fun to try new things and decide what to make later.
Here's the MEGASKEIN - snag it on Instagram for 160€ plus shipping.
Remember my Behemoth? It's finally dry and I reskeined it to a bigger diameter for easier handling. These are the new photos. 899g of fibery goodness! This would make a stunning poncho. Or some looong legwarmers. Or a set of hat & scarf & mittens. Use it for weaving? Or split it up? Whatever!
Snag it while it's on Instagram to get the best price. The entire skein is 160€. Plus shipping (standard untracked but signed for delivery for around 10€, tracked would be considerably more). If no one grabs this, it'll go in my online shop for 180 € or 22€ per 100g by the end of the week.
