I have a serious fiber problem. It's really out of control. Example: When I found out the Malabrigo mill burnt down, I immediately got online a bought *embarrassed cough* dollars of yarn. I'm bad with roving too. So bad, I almost always buy by the pound. Ounces do nothing for me. Currently I have three pounds of silk (down from six), and two pounds of Blue Faced Leicester. Pounds might make sense if I used a wheel, but nope, I'm a Luddite when it comes to tools, and a bit of a masochist. Spinning a thousand yards on a high whorl spindle is no mean feat. So anyway, I broke my only "by the pound rule" when I saw 7 ounces of beautiful Merino Wool, Tussah Silk and Alpaca blended into gorgeous batts. I couldn't stand it! I immediately clicked over to www.spinknitandlife.etsy.com
and snatched it up. I highly recommend buying from her. Her products are beautiful and very reasonably priced. Also, I put my order in Friday, and I had the package in my hot little hands on Monday! Lightning Fast!
Here it is so far, long draw, two ply. It is such a joy to spin, I can't put it down! I'm almost finished! Also, she sent me a little extra goodie of Alpaca and BFL blended together. I love that story.
Anyway, you can also find Phyllis at her blog, Spin, Knit and Life. She's really friendly!
If there's any other spindle spinners out there with a Flickr account, I've got a group called Drop it Like it's Hot Spindles. Go there and drool!
