How I long for a Drum Carder!

Oh... A Drum Carder would absolutely be the most adorable present this Christmas. And I bet Weird feels just the same. I just can't stop drooling over those fantastic fiber creations on etsy and I wish I could card them more professionally myself!

I mean... See for yourself!

makes these wonderful, dark, glimmering batts. She's really good in blending contrasting colors and creating outstanding color combinations, and she seems to use many wonderful types of fiber!

Those batts radiate in vibrant colors and look awesomely soft. Ah... I really don't know if I could spin them up, I mean: They look already so fantastic!

I think I'd just hug them and pet them a bit...

has carded this beauties.

I really like the colors of these batts, they're all warm and gentle. The fibers look soft and my fingers itch if I think of spinning these batts! I already can feel the softness of the caramel fibers...

And the best is: There's much glittering stuff in these batts already! That's great, because I love glittering stuff. :-)

I guess I'd have my problems spinning these wonderful batts, too, as I reckon I'd drool all over them if I could lay my fingers on them. ;-)

And then, of course, there's Loop.
I don't know what I can say about those fascinating batts. You can see for yourself how gorgeous they are! Those shimmering colors, the softness of the fibers!

Ah... It's just too much for me. And that's the problem: I can't decide! They are all so delicious! I don't know if I'm able of purchasing just a single one of those fantastic batts and neglect the others! My self-discipline is rather low, especially concerning yarn stuff, and so I end up with purchasing none at all.

The solution is: Someone has to buy me a drum carder, so I can at least start my feeble attempts in carding batts.

Hello, Mr. Claus? Anyone there? ;-)

You're lucky!

"Sticheleien", the craft fair we went to, is over!

It was an experience, for sure! We met loads of nice people there, but I guess our tasty Art Yarns are at the moment just a tiny bit too freaky for good ol' Germany. ;)

Take the yarn above, for example! I love it, I really do! I spun it some weeks ago and put lots of handfelted zombie heads into it, along with cool linen and sparkling Angelina fiber. Well, many people looked at it and said some approving things - but it's still here with me!

Well, the better for you, as we'll put all our great handspun Art Yarns into our shop the next weeks. :)

Off to the Craft Fair!

It's time! Finally! Well, you don't know yet... Because we didn't tell you - until now! This weekend we'll be showing our Art Yarns at a market called Sticheleien in Michelstadt in the Odenwald in Germany. The past weeks we've been spinning like hell - that's the reason we didn't write about it here. We were way too busy!

Well, now both Weird and me have more than 30 (THIRTY, right! Each of us! Oh yeah!) new Art Yarns in stock, just longing to be sold on the market in Michelstadt. And just in case we don't sell each and every yarn there, you can look forward to literally TONS of new, exclusive yarns on etsy! ;-)

Art Yarn Challenge

There's an art yarn challenge on TreasureAyland which sounds... well, challenging :-D I'd like to give the Hanging Gardens of Babylon a try, so hopefully, there will be something new to look at in the near future.
