What a great name for a shop! Sometimes I wish I had been more clever with my shop name.

Those fiber and spindle bags are great! I like the modern dots fabric. Also, the brown roving was the only fiber left, but I certainly wouldn't shoo it away from my door. It looked incredibly soft!

I immediately was struck by the awesome and innovative packaging pictured above. I also love the raw wool she has dyed up. I have been meaning to spin up some art yarn and I might just have to pursue some of that!

Love the fiber bags... sure beats the ziplock and other plastic bags I keep mine in now.

I like the wide ribbon on the bag. That's a nice touch instead of just a drawstring. I also like the brown paper she used too.

Congrats on the new store! I can't wait to see what other great things you have to add to your fantastic line-up. : )

My favorite is the rasbery vine. I love the big ribbon for the handle. It looks like it should be very comfortable to carry. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with!

What a great idea a spindle bag is - mine just sit out, open to the elements (and my cat).

Jacquelyn said...

What a greatidea! I have been searching for a way to keep my spindle from getting bunged up, and this is a quantum improvement over the ziplock!

Melissa said...

Those spindle bags are so cute! My favorite thing in the shop would have to be the berries raw wool! It's gorgeous!

I got one of these wonderful batts in my Phat Fiber January box. Love the rich tones. Thanks for introducing me to this really pretty fiber.

Heather said...

The packaging is really charming!

The new shop is great -- I just love the autumn skies combination. I haven't spun in a while but PhatFiber is whipping me into a spinning frenzy. Gotta get my wheel out now...

Gina said...

Wow... love the bags! they are so cute! I really like the raspberry vine!

with that little wrist strap you could also use it as small project bag to hold your yarn so you could knit or crochet as you're walking down the street, or in the car so that the yarn doesn't roll all over the place!

I have been spinning for 16 years, and making soap. Which both seem ti have similar packing types, but I really love the fiber. I don't buy fiber much because I have so much but I would buy that just because of the packaging of the fiber. But the one thing that I wasn't sure about is the font on your main page, it makes the font hard to read. KERN. :)
