Dyed Fleeces Now Available in Etsy Store!

I have been dyeing wool fleeces over the past couple of weeks, trying to get some of my enormous fleece stash sold and shipped to make room for more fleeces since shearing season will be here before we know it.

These fleeces are perfect for spinning, wet felting, needle felting, fiber art or even doll hair.

The latest fleeces are:

Field of Clover - Lincoln



Lincoln fleece with longer staple length of 5+" dyed in the kettle using Sky Blue, Emerald and Sunny Yellow to create a gorgeous green/blue fleece that I named Field of Clover. I split this fleece into two parts in my etsy store - each batch weighs 5.9 oz for a total of 11.8 oz if you purchase both batches. Here is the link to that listing: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20933354

Bronzed Burgundy - Border Leicester



Border Leicester fleece with a staple length of about 4" dyed in the kettle using Burgundy, Golden Yellow and Burnt Orange - a variation of my Bronzed Burgundy colorway - very rich and elegant and one of my most popular colorways. Again, I split this fleece into two parts in my etsy store - each batch weighs about 6.3 oz for a total of 12.6 oz if you purchase both batches. Here is the link to that listing: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=20931507

Claire: Better get spinning is right! I just finished up your Fiber of the Month Club batt today and I think you'll LOVE it. I will probably get this month's shipment out next Tuesday. I usually ship on the 15th which falls on a Sunday this month and then the next day is a holiday (Monday is President's Day) and the post office is closed. I intended to ship on Friday the 13th but have felt too sick to do much this week. Waaa...somebody get me a cheese plate to go with my whine! ;o)

I just got a Louet wheel today! I found it on Craig's List and had it shipped! Woo hoo! I'm gonna be a spinning fool this weekend. Of course, since I have only spindle-spun to this point, it will probably be horrible to start with, but I'll learn!

Woo Hoo!!! You'll love spinning on a wheel. I never did get the hang of a hand spindle, although I bought a couple of them and have played with them off and on, hoping to master it...ha! No, if you've been spinning on a hand spindle you'll catch on to the wheel really fast. The hardest part for me was learning to draft while getting the hang of treadling - kind of like trying to pat your tummy and rub your head, etc. ;o) You go girl!!!
