New fingering weight hand dyed yarns

I am introducing a brand new yarn base, consisting of 100% superwash Merino wool.
This lime green yarn is the very first one to be listed, but more will follow shortly. :)

It is basically either a sock yarn alternative, for those who prefer the pure Merino yarns or a very nice option for slightly more substantial lace patterns.

For example, I have seen some beautiful examples of the Annis shawl knit out of fingering weight yarn - I might have to try it myself soon!

Who will be my 500th customer?

To be honest, I thought I had more time! But that is a good, no, a great problem to have! 500 Sales in my Etsy shop will be a very major milestone for me and I will of course add some serious freebies to that order...

I've been pretty busy with getting the shop back in shape and adding lots of yarns which have been ready for a while as well as some brand new, freshly spun ones.

To get into the swing of autumn, I have added some gorgeous pumpkin related yarns, 2 of which are still available here and here.

Remember the Tour de Fleece?

I know it's been quite a while, but this morning I got a nice reminder in the form of a price I won during it. :) The lovely Sara from Lush Mommy sent me an absolutely stunning piece of fluffyness in form of a beautiful batt - can't wait to spin it up!
