Bamboo Cotton Love!!

Originally uploaded by funknitter
OMG , I have just received the most amazing cotton which I have ever seen, felt on planet earth!
It is a worsted weight and it is Cotton/Bamboo blend. I am blown away, I am gasping for air!

You will love it and if you don’t like cotton normally you will be surprised.
It doesn’t feel like cotton at all , it is sooo soft even softer than Gaia Merino!!
It is better thanmy Ultimo which is Merino/Silk/Bamboo blend!

You need to try it, I would give it the cotton blend of the century award, will do a test dye today!

For a very special friend's brand new bubba hatched last Thursday in my Carribbean colourway on Gaia Bulky!!Hope she will like them!
I was a bit emotional when I was knitting them as I wish I would have a new bubba as well but I am still hopeful it will happen one day!

Cotton mini skeins for Ewe Baut Sept Box

All are destined for the Sept Ewe Beaut Sampler Boxes.
It was hard parting with the blue one as I just love how vibrant it is, but I am getting new cotton so I can also dye more of the Carribbean Colourway.
Other colourway is " Choc Kisses"

Frst try at wool top dyeing!

Originally uploaded by funknitter
I always wanted to try it , now that I am learning how to spin with a drop spindle I thought it would be more inspiring to spin with some colourwool top so I dyed some of my Corriedale top !!
I was really gentle to it and dry to handle is a little as possble!

THe picture on top shows how it looks when set and rinsed!I wanted that it looks a bit brighter or vibrant but it was my first go at dyeing so I am quite happy with the result!
