Zen Yarn Spinning

Zen Yarn Spinning

I decided the other day to try Zen Yarn Spinning. This is a type of spinning where you sink into the moment and just be. You. The fiber. The wheel. Peace.

It was glorious!

I used some luscious roving from Sweet Georgia club of the month (from about a year ago. I don’t remember the color name or the type of fiber, but it looks like wool blended with either silk or bamboo).

So far I have around 100 skeins dyed up (96 to be exact), so I’m almost half-way done! I should be done within the next few days, but about a week or two at the very latest, should things get […]

Hand-Spun Qiviut is Like Heaven

Oh, wow.

A few months ago, I purchased some qiviut down at my local yarn store. Qiviut is the down fur from the underbelly of the Arctic Musk Ox. We actually have a musk ox farm nearby and I have seen these lovely beauties in person! Aren’t they precious?
