You Know You Want Some

My friend Sara started up an Etsy shop to sell her handmade spindles. Then she got a little crazy and started making fiber batts. I caved sometime before Christmas and bought one.

And then Sara, in her infinite generosity gave me a huge pillow of fluff in exchange for some fiber I gave her. I am not worthy. A blend of wool, alpaca, merino, bamboo, silk with a bit of bling, in a smoky gray blue. Oooh.

I wish you could reach into your computer to sink your hands in this stuff. It is beyond amazing. She runs the fibers through her carder at least three times. This stuff is super blended and super soft. You need to get some of your own. You won't be sorry.

I've never spun from batts, but this post makes me want to try. It looks like pewter. Pretty pretty.

Thank you Lisa! Glad you love your fluff.

those are very tempting! I've seen her shop before - maybe from a ravelry ad? too bad (or good thing) I'm on a buying moratorium until I use up a bunch of stash.

I can't wait to see what you spin up though!

Oh stop tempting me! I am on a yarn diet, but I still say that fiber doesn't count.
