lauraelih said...

They're all so pretty. I want them. But as I'm working on a scrappy blanket at the moment, the "random assortment of odds and ends" of fiber are very appealing.

ohdessa said...

I like the random assortment of odds and ends because I like to be surprised.

Kaylan e. Senour said...

ITW! I love her fiber, so very much. Yummy yummy yummy!

In the shop right now, I've been eyeing the random assortment. I think that's the perfect way to try a random sampling of her fiber!

Mara / moonsister said...

There are so many lovely colourways and the way they are presented is just gorgeous, too! Id love to play with Merino/cash in 5th avenue heiress

Jessey said...

I'm loving the BFL Potpourri - and the idea of random odds and ends is fantastic!

The random assortment of odds and ends for sure! I love playing with different fibres, different colours. I like felting and spinning and randomness. So that is just neat!

Don't know exactly what brandywine is, but it sure looks pretty. I really like your website and the pictures of each colorway spun up versus pooled. It's a nice way to convey just how beautifully the colors meld together.

PixelatedMushroom said...

eep I love it all - but the Merino/Cashmere - Cloud 9 is my fave ^_^

I love everything on the ITW shop site. Most of the spinning I've done in my short spinning career has been ITW top. My favorite current colorway is Cloud 9.
