Spinning daze!

I have been in a spinning daze! I have been having so much fun and am so thankful that I have such great fibres in my fibre box [erm shelf... erm ok I admit it, it is a cupboard of fibre!]

So to celebrate the giveaway of my hand-dyed sock wool on Naturalsuburbia.blogspot.com , I have decided to offer a 10% discount on my handspun etsy listings. Here they are...

Crystal Beaded Silk Merino 2ply yarn
Sooo pretty! AND ITS SOLD!

I had such fun with this one, it is a beautiful blend of silk, 19,5 micron merino and crystal beads.Weight:51g [1,8oz]Length: approx 110m. The merino is hand dyed in a warm mushroom tone and the silk was hand dyed in a warm pink, blues with the odd bit of golden sun peeking in.The crystal beads are a soft pink - they tone in perfectly.The result is a subtle colour way with great character.I can also spin some more of the mushroom merino to be used with this skein.
