The BFL/silk combed top in cranberry bog colorway just looks delicious!

Robin said...

I love the Handspun Dark Grey Llama Yarn.

Katie said...

Polwarth Combed Top 4 Oz in "Chianti Classico" is my favorite thing in her shop, but it is hard to choose! She uses a lot of cooler colors, which is right up my alley.

Robyn said...

Oh wow. That looks like it feels delicious. (So much sensory confusion there!) What an awesome shop. The BFL/Silk in Cranberry Bog drew my eye right off, though. Wow!

The violet silk blend lace weight is totally out of my price range, but pretty fantastic. But I pretty much love everything.

Mee, the person said...

Oddly enough this one was the very one on the website I was drawn to - without even thinking about it. It looks so sumptuous!

Lindr said...

Ooh, there's a suri alpaca batt that just glows. I think I would keep it, and pet it, and it would be my squishy.

Becca said...

Ooh, if I could ever justify spending so much on one skein I'd get the 382 Yds. Handspun Merino Yarn "All That Jazz". It's so pretty.

omg, EVERYTHING looks amazing - such a wonderful range of fibers! I don't spin (yet), but just want to pet the tussah silk in green flash. Like forever. The cranberry bog colorway is also really stunning.

I love pretty much everything Friends in Fiber does, but I have to say, "Copper Mine" has been calling me for a long time....

And this handspun looks gorgeous! :)

Oh my goodness! I adore the "Hand Knit Whimsical Long-Tail Toddler Hat" and if I had a toddler I would buy it immediately! As it is, I think I need to work on both producing a toddler and more handspun to knit up hats for the toddler. What, you say I need a baby first? Oh, DH... ;o)
