I bought this beautiful Autumnal fibre last week at a local wool shop. Isn’t it just gorgeous? It’s Targhee fibre and feels quite fibrous to spin with especially compared with the Merino fibre I’ve been spinning recently. It is not difficult to spin with though, it just feels different.
I think it’s going to make a lovely yarn for this time of the year.
Here’s a closer look. So many colours combining to remind us of fallen leaves and shedding trees.
That’s not all I’ve got to remind me the season is changing. Check out this wonderful pumpkin that leaped into my shopping cart last Wednesday.
Have a great week everybody.
That fibre is amazing! What are you planning on making?
Also, I love that pumkin – I used to grow ones like that in my yard but haven’t for years (you’ve reminded me that I must start growing them again) 🙂
It’s odd, I am beginning to feel more at peace with autumn this year. I used to hate it, for marking the end of summer. Must be a sign of age!
I didn’t know you could buy fibre. Just shows how out of touch I am… grins. Love the pumpkin.
We don’t see it in shops over there very often do we? In fact I can’t think of one. In Luton, there is only one wool shop and it doesn’t sell fibre. Sad! Anyway when I’ve over there I buy it online from http://www.forestfibres.co.uk and they have a great choice. Over here I just go to the wool shop. However, they don’t sell a lot of each hank, only really enough to make a shawl or a hat or something else small. In England I bought a kg of fibre which I am hoping will be enough to make a proper garment.
