The past few days I had the enjoyable and exciting task of preparing new fibers for felters and spinners. Enjoyable because who doesn't like putting their hands into a big ball of soft, fluffy merino wool. Exciting because even though I know what is coming, it is sometimes hard to determine from a picture or even the little tuft of actual fiber, exactly what the color will be. Several of the names of these new colors shout Spring and Summer; how about Hyacinth.
This color turned out to be a deeper sky blue shade, one you can really use alone or highlight. It will replace the current fiber called Sky Blue.
Then there is Garden Ivy. A soft shade of green that will compliment so many floral designs or stand alone easily.
Two other very exciting solid color merinos are Magenta, sure to spice up any fiber art. Also Purple, this is going to be my 'go to' color in that series. These are shown on the webpage with all the solid color merino.
Sandal wood is the new multi colored merino with shades of nature to blend with nearly all the solids and certainly will be a standout for later season designs. It is on the webpage with the other multicolored merinos.
This is one of the two new merino silk blends; called Rose as there is a rosy overtone to the many blended earthtones The other new merino silk is Concord, think juicy grapes. They are both shown on this page.
The standards and successful trial colors are all back in stock and ready for busy fiber work.
