Those of you who know me well will perhaps be surprised by this 4 0z. batch of 60% Merino/40% Bamboo in the color "Wineberry" from Cloudlover. True, I'm not normally a purple person (and it seems you either are or you aren't) but when I saw this particular fiber I fell head over heels in love. I think this is going to be the first I spin, and I am planning on spinning it all on a drop spindle.
Unfortunately, the color of this batt doesn't show so well. (I'm a bit surprised that this is the one my camera didn't like. I would have expected more problems with the purple based on past experience.) This is an experimental sock batt from Butterfly Girl Designs - from whom I've ordered before. It's 70% superwash merino, 20% nylon and 10% bamboo in a colorway called "Dirty Martini." Several of my guild friends have discussed spinning sock yarns with nylon before, and I have to admit I was curious.
I have one last batch of fiber still on it's way to me from Ireland, and of course I will share it when it arrives. Of all, it's perhaps the one I'm most excited about...and if I'd had more money I would have ordered two!
Normally at this time of year I hit the greenhouses for a bit of late-winter cheer. This year, I think my new fibers are going to do the trick instead.
