A few new yarns . . .

I've listed a few new yarns recently . . . two art yarn skeins today and 2 bamboo skeins yesterday. Very opposite yarns - the art yarn is very bright and cheery in shades of bright pink and peachy coral, and the bamboo is the most gorgeous deep plum/purple! Here is a mosaic of them, and you can find them in my etsy shop HERE.

I also finally spun a two-ply recently! I do like how the twoplys turn out, but since they take me so much longer than all of my other yarns, I don't spin them very often. But, I had this custom-color dyed by the Yarn Wench in merino wool, and thought it'd look good as 2ply. The colors were hard to capture, but here are the two skeins -

You can find them in my etsy shop HERE and HERE.

I'm getting ready for Wisconsin Sheep & Wool, which is in a couple of weeks, so I may not be listing much or posting here, but I AM spinning and will have new yarns available there and then will list what doesn't sell after the show. Lots going on right now and one of these days I'll blog about it all . . .

New yarns and destash now on etsy

Today, I listed some new yarns. Mostly single plys, but also one Navajo 3ply in merino wool and tencel. Here is a mosaic of the yarns, all of which can be found in my etsy shop HERE. (One note - the last one, the orange/pink one won't be listed until Monday!)

Also, I have now listed all of my FIBER and YARN destash in my Kitty Grrlz Knits Shop on Etsy. I am also offering a discount for multiple lot purchases -
FIBER Destash - buy 2 or more lots and get 15% off
YARN Destash - buy 2 or more lots and get 10% off

This discount will be refunded to you via paypal (after your payment is made) OR you can wait for a revised invoice - BUT, if you want a revised invoice, please note that in the "Notes to Seller" section when checking out on etsy.

I may be working on a custom order this week, but hope to sneak in an art yarn or two and maybe some more Navajo 3plys. I've got the fiber ready, just need to spin! I've also got a bamboo fiber order that will soon be on its way so look for new bamboo late next week, probably.
