Juliet Brown  Dyer of yarn and player with fluff.

Hmmmmm. Great help, cat πŸ™„

Simple Sew Utility dress, from this month's Sew(?) magazine. I made it as a dress for me, but it looked so bad on me that I cut it down into a top for my daughter, and it looks SOOO much better on her. Kind of kimono-y. It's in a lovely soft cotton chambray bolt end from my local quilting shop.

#newlook6225 view D (with view A & B neckline) using two 33cm lengths of cotton poplin from the bargain bin of my LFS for Β£2 each, with sleeves from a batik fat quarter from deep stash. I had to make the neck binding from five short pieces of batik, there was so little left. I also finished the sleeves with bias binding made from lawn leftovers from a previous project because the turned hem wasn't working too well. I really like the detail, and the finish is so much neater.
Other mods, shortened by about 5", sway back adjustment and I increased the shoulder slope by 1/4" front and back.

@grainlinestudio #scouttee in some lovely Rose & Hubble cotton, bought a few years ago from, I think, one of our holidays in the Isle of Man. Made last year, but I'm only just starting to document my sewing. Worn with #newlook6843 view E in linen from a fabric shop in Cheltenham. I've made the skirt about 5 or 6 times.

My daughter, getting a fibre fume fix!
It's lots of wonderfully soft Superfine Shetland ready for Wonderwool πŸ˜€

I'm having a yarny, fibre-y March Madness sale!!
Everything in my shop is 20% off from tomorrow Monday 12th, right through to the end of March! πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰πŸŽ† #knittersofinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #indydyer #yarnlove #yarnsale #yarn #fibre #fiber #fibersale #lovewool #igspinners #handdyedyarn #specklesaresohotrightnow #knittingyarn #marchmadness #dontmissout

An interesting illustration of the properties of wool from different breeds! The wool tops are all straight and smooth from the combing process, but when water and heat are applied during the dyeing process, the natural crimp springs back in and reanimates the fibre.
On the left is superfine Shetland, all floofy. (technical term πŸ˜‰)
In the centre is Bluefaced Leicester, with its lovely ripples.
On the right is the longwool Teeswater, where the silky waves have been re-awakened.
I love wool. Sheep are so clever 😁

Sneak peak of my first forays into repeatable colourways, after 9 years of purely going where the dye takes me!
It hasn't got a name yet, and the colour is a bit off due to it being a phone video, but you get the idea 😁
I'm aiming to get it in the shop by the beginning of next week, currently on my Smoothie Sock and Burnish bases. I'm working on other colourways too, so watch this space....

I've been having a speckle-fest this week! It takes a little more time, but it's such fun layering the colours, and leads on from a festive inspired wholesale order I enjoyed doing for @yarn_and_good_company πŸ’šβ€οΈπŸ’š. These are all Burnish Bluefaced Leicester and silk, and are in the shop right now.
