I’ve been busy!

I really love all the colors that I’ve done recently, and I’ll be adding 4 new listings of fiber, hopefully by Tuesday! I’m waiting patiently for them to be fully dry, then I’ll get nice photos up and have them listed here on the Shop page. These are all punta* combed top, and definitely felt-able! Here is a quickie photo of the fibers, hanging to dry:

top-bottom: Citrine, Mojito, Ocean, Amethyst


I had fun trying different method on each piece, and it was interesting to see how they each turned out! Hope you enjoy spinning these as much as I did dyeing them!



*‘Punta’ is a name given to a blend of medium fine wools from South America, with counts in the 60’s, and similar to average merino.

i finally did it! i opened up an etsy store. There are a bunch of indie dyers all over the internet though, so i don’t know how well it will do, or if it will even be sustainable. I might end up just selling directly through the blog. I’ll just have to wait and see.

you can see my shop here: absolute jeanius

right now, my pretty ‘Embers’ is up. Time to check the stash for more dyeable yarns…
