I really like the "Sugar & Spice" handpainted merino. I can think of several folks, knitters and knit-wear recipients alike, to whom this would appeal.

THROUGH THE WOODS Tumbleweeds Carded Batts are very nice and has a wonderful combination of fibers.

I love the Lion's Mane batt... I have a weakness for orange tones. :D

All of the yarns are beautiful! and I love the names she has chosen for each one. Funny how a name draws you - loved the name "Mermaid Hair" - and then reading the description and feasting on the color confirmed that's the one. That's my favorite :-)

I know my way around this shop and went straight to the Squishalicious Fibers section. The Blueberry Pie Filling looks delicious, and I'd love to have a Tumbleweed batt #2.

I am loving the Pink Poodle. Also, I seriously need the Pampering Package. Tumbleweed batts 7, 8, 9, and 11 need to find their way to me. The Troll Bogeys and the Monster Updo keep staring at me. I may have to act on the soon. I LOVE THIS SHOP!
