My friend Jette made her beautiful Violaine top with Malabrigo and she says it doesn’t pill. So I’m trying a little […]

Yesterday I started spinning my Fiber Swap Art batts. As you can see, I love color ;-) Needle-felted some flowers, beads and oddments, and spun using the autowrapping and foreign objects techniques from “Sit and spin“. I love that the batts contain all sorts of fibers and textures (including chunks of locks) which renders beautifully […]
