There is some great looking fiber there, all like Merino/;Alapca blends. Those sound lovely. What I think was funny, though, was the disclaimer at the end of the description for the buttons: "**Buttons are a choking hazard for children. Children should NEVER be allowed to play with them loose nor should they be used for eyes on a toy!" I don't let my 1 yo play with my buttons, but my button jar is one of the biggest treasures in the house for my 3 yo. She loves to play witht hem! And I love using buttons as the eyes on my sock monkeys. They are so fun. So fun! So that disclaimer cracked me up inside.

I love the Purple Nightshade handspun. And I've always loved her selection of buttons!

Sheila said...

I think I could have spent all day admiring all her buttons and trying to pick a favorite. Instead I picked a yarn, the Handspun Yarn Powder Blue superwash wool 4 ply cabled.

Pinned and tweeted too.
