Whoo Hoo - look at these batts

I didn't do much shopping at OFFF due to my van issues plus I don't need a thing and I have no business buying any spinning fiber since I have hundreds of pounds in stock for my etsy shop.  So, fiber has to be really special for me to buy it and this one top it off I've been thinking about carding up some batts that are mostly black with pops of bright color - now I don't have to do it. These two batts are 80% black baby alpaca and 20% hand-dyed silk from Upstream Alpacas in Gaston, OR.  I've got 8 ounces that would make a nice scarf or shawlette.......or I could ply it with some black silk thread to make it go further and knit a shawl out of it. I can't wait to start spinning it but first on the to-do list is to keep working on holiday no pictures of  works in progress at the moment.


  1. Thanks! I'd better get busy and make more of these. I'm getting views in my shop from your blog!

    1. Wow - that's great! I always put a link to something I love with hopes others will go visit shops/blogs.

  2. And it feels absolutely heavenly, got to fondle while at OFFF.

  3. Whoa! That;s fun and bright. I don't think I've seen such a bright combo of colors since the black light days of the early 70's. You'll rock it for sure Cindie.
    Groan, holiday gift stuff, at a stand still here.

  4. Those batts are beautiful!!! Please post pics as you work it up. Love the colors!!!


I love your comments - thank you!
