Sweet Pea Fibers







There is a contributor who's shop, I really truly just adore and that is Sweet Pea Fibers! I bought a few items from her shop a few weeks ago and I couldn't have been more pleased! Felicia included a little bit of dyed shetland for me to try- don't you just love it when shop owners go that extra mile and make you feel all warm and gooey inside?! Because Felicia just drips with awesome, she has provided a sampling listing in her shop! With one swoop, you can buy mini versions of her popular offerings.

Felicia has sent in samples for all three months so far! Her January samples were huge, puffy and scrumptious spinning batts and roving. They were nearly 1oz each! She sent in a mixed lot of hand dyed yarn for both February and March and I was so enamored of the sheen, quality and softness I scrambled to buy some shortly after they arrived! I plan on making some sort of quick-to-knit drapey shawl from the yarn I bought since it has some lovely shiny silk in it- and it was dyed to perfection- really! What have you bought from Sweet Pea Fibers? I would love for everyone to visit her shop and let her know here how much it is loved :)

The colors in these yarns are so vibrant and intense. The names are yummy too. Buttered Rum, Lemon Rind--my what great descriptive names. These are so beautiful. Tencil combination in the sock yarn is a wonderful idea because the the absorbant yet cooling quality of that fiber. I don't know what Sweet Pea does in her studio, but it must include loads of inspirational music or videos and probably a bakery nearby.

I have one of her fiber samplers. I've spun five of the six samples and they were all lovely. It is a great way for beginning spinners to sample different fibers and preps, plus the colors are complementary so you can ply them together in new combos. I've been eyeing several more!

I just have to give Felicia some love. Her stuff is great and she is an awesome person! We had a great time at Yarn School a few years back.

Acid Burn and Cherry Blossom! Love them! Samplers are a GREAT idea! I also love the graphics in her banner. Swirls are my fav and a very nice font choice.
