Fairy Princess Yarn – Giveaway

In my last post I hand dyed some english leichester/merino cross wool in a pretty shade of grey, pink and red. (see here…)


I was really excited about spinning it up, because I was just in love with the colour! So I blended it with some off-white huacaya alpaca which I purchased from a farm just down the road from my house and some pulled sari silk. It’s soft and yummy and I love it. The picture below is a little dark, I took it at night time (I couldn’t wait until morning) … and when I woke up it was overcast, so i’ll take another photo this afternoon.


Here is some of the yarn knitted up as a sampler on size 5 needles

  2. Hi Krissie, found your blog through your youtube video on making a wool comb. Had a quick look at your blog and added you to my favourites. I’m just starting to spin and processing my own fibre so I’m going to enjoy going back through your posts to see what you’ve written. Thanks for the wool comb tutorial and the blog posts from what I can see they look really exciting.


  3. I WON!!! I feel so lucky to have been chosen to receive this absolutely beautiful and unique handmade yarn. What a great international story it tells with its blend of English wool, Indian sari and South American alpaca! I’ll be thinking of distant lands and global harmony as I crochet with it. Thanks a million for the lovely prize and nice surprise! 😀

  4. Oh, wow, I didn’t realize till now this yarn will be arriving from Australia! Well, that is even more exotic and exciting. I’m going to call it Fairy Princess OPAL in honor of your superlative++ gemstones and my dearly departed grandmother.
