#Repost @shopknittingnellie (@get_repost) ・・・ This beautiful breath of Spring-in-a-skein arrived at my doorstep this week from @lgfsuris. It's everything I look for in a yarn - rustic and Earthy, soft and painterly. I feel like it's the perfect shade to transition my wardrobe into Spring, and the 50% Suri Alpaca, 50% wool content feels so luxurious to the touch! . . Sue and her daughter, Margaret, of Little Gidding Farm Suris are passionate about being woman owned, US sourced and processed, doing their own dyeing with no impact on the environment, and supporting brick and mortar stores.

This is the smallest egg I have ever seen! Crazy small!
Ruby has a thing for wool! She has 2 of Dean's old sweaters that she drags from room to room and rolls around with them! Only wool, not cotton! I've had to hide his good sweaters or she'd have those too! She just dragged this one through 3 rooms and down a stair! #catsofinstagram #wooladdicted

#Repost @foxandfolk (@get_repost) ・・・ For the past few years spring has been synonymous with fiber season to me. Shearing, fleece, learning to skirt by grade (a skill I'm still not particularly confident in), and pastures full of newly shorn beauties. . . Fiber holds so much wonder for me. A connection to our pasts, to how we protected our families from the harsh cold. To the animals we raised, and the community that bands together to bring fiber from the field to our needles. From shearing with a team of experienced shepherds to get through the heard in one day, to the mill, and finally dying the yarn. . . Every piece we knit has a story, a story we may know well, from field to needles, or a story that for us begins when we first squeeze that lovely new skein in the shop. No matter how I come to find myself with woolen love forming on my needles that magic is still there.✨ . . What's your fiber story? . .
