Lots of new hand spun yarns!

I have been busy spinning. The yarns above are some of my most recent additions to my etsy shop - a little bit of everything - some more art yarn skeins, some new bamboo, a new CoilySpun yarn, a new Novel-Ply, and even a squishy Thread-Ply!

What's coming next? More art yarns - including brand new colors! Also, more bamboo, of course!

Stay tuned - in May I plan on doing my "Destash Sundays" posts again like I did last year. I'm also working on some brand new products! AND, will be showcasing some awesome items made with my yarn. Plus, spinning lots of new yarns, of course!
