Fibre goodness from the Fibre Garden


These are some pics of the fibre I got at the Fibre Garden in Jordan, Ontario last Sunday, when I went for the spin-in:

First off, my favorite, Jacob fibre dyed by John Valleau -aka ‘THE DYEGUY™ hand-dyed yarns and fibres’-, in a colour he called ‘Heirloom Tomato’, John’s creation -a joy of earthy colours, reds, oranges, and browns. It is just a coincidence the carpet of my craft room has the same lovely colours!

Second, about 200 grams of Corriedale in ‘Cheesecake’ colourway. I just love that ochre colour!

And last, I got 2 lbs. of beautiful Shetland in its natural brown colour, which will probably end up being a sweater:

The background of the last picture, is a fibre or knitting bag I’ve made using  the same print cotton that I had picked for the spinning wheel bag I ordered from Lauren, I’ve also used some 100% cotton in beige:

And speaking of project bags, using the same fabrics, I’ve also sewn a fibre little bag that I hung from my Lendrum when I am spinning. Pretty cute and useful:
