I have decided to bring two new projects with me in Sardaigne : #sandalwoodsweater by @veerarain with the beautiful tukuwool yarn I have had in my stash for ages and the shawl no.41 by @bichesetbuches with #lepetitlambswool !
We are going to let the car at home and walk/ take buses so I think two projects is very reasonable 😏

. do you know that feeling when you touch a yarn and you just want to plunge into it?
.
For me that is the case with both Mokosh and Ahimsa. .
Mokosh is a lovely soft organic french merino. I'm so happy to be able to present this small batch to. Next one will come in November, fingers crossed.
.
Ahimsa is a organic, fair trade silk yarn. It is also called peace silk or non-violent silk because the moths are hatching from their cocoons before the fiber is harvested. .
Depending on my unreliable internet connection (well, the cost of living in the middle of nowhere) the shopupdate will take place later today. I'll tell you asap.

For my first test knit with Aurinkokehra, it seemed only right to choose a Finnish designer for this beautiful hand-dyed Finnish yarn. The #rosewatershawl by @woolenberry Janina Kallio has been on my list for a long time, and was just perfect. If you just want to try out this yarn, it's the ideal one-skein project. .
🇫🇷 Pour mon premier test d'Aurinkokehra, il me semblait approprié de choisir une créatrice finlandaise pour ce magnifique fil teint à la main en Finlande. Le châle Rosewater de @woolenberry Janina Kallio à été sur ma liste depuis longtemps, et était juste parfait. Si vous voulez tester cette laine, c'est le projet idéal pour un seul écheveau.

Several weeks ago I spent a fun, creative day putting together a little project with my cousin @finlayburrage who’s a photographer and storyteller. We worked on documenting our yarn of course but also more of our story and my own creative process. A lot of what we ended up shooting was his idea and I honestly didn’t realize how valuable this experience would be. It was a bit challenging for me to capture everything this little yarn company means to me in just a few words and images but there’s no one else I would have rather worked on this project with. Thanks Fin for pouring so much of your own creative energy into this project! I can’t wait to share a few more glimpses into what we’ve created over the following days & weeks 🌻💙✨ #raincloudandsageyarn

Found some shots of the #Fleece. Rare Black Nose Valais imported from Europe drying on the racks! This is the fleece you see in my previous shots green from algae because I left it presoaking too long. 🤣😂😅 This fleece is from #EurekaMohair and was heavily skirted already. It’s finally been scoured and rinsed and is now drying, probably for a day or two as these are pretty thick locks.
I will likely comb or spin directly from the lock as these are very long.

Japanese fashion designers have long been known for their amazing use of structure and form and have had a big influence on Western fashion. I find that the same is true now of Japanese knitwear designers - I always find something new and original in Japanese knitwear designs. The Chaika sweater is a new design by @knit_cafe_midori and I just love @_clairedupont_ Claire's test knit in Snaeldan 3ply 💜
.
🇫🇷 Les créateurs de mode japonais sont reconnus depuis longtemps pour leur utilisation de la forme et de la structure et ont eu une grande influence sur la mode occidentale. Je trouve que c'est maintenant aussi le cas pour le tricot - je trouve toujours quelque chose de nouveau et d'original dans les modèles de tricot japonais. Le pull Chaika est un nouveau modèle de @knit_cafe_midori et j'adore le test de Claire @_clairedupont_ tricoté en Snaeldan 3ply 💜.

Wool carpet adds a timeless sophistication to your room design. It is also natural, anti-allergenic, easy to care for and environmentally friendly. Our Ambrosia carpet would be the perfect choice to achieve this look for your home. 📷 Image via Pinterest @carpetright_uk #flooringinspiration #designideas #woolcarpet #timelessstyle #naturaldecor

While I was away these lovely naturally dyed treasures from @tintica.yarns have arrived. Extremely soft spanish merino wool and such vibrant warm colors 😍 slide for closeups! #knitting #yarnporn #naturallydyedyarn #naturallydyed #plantdyed #spanishwool #europeanwool #indiedyer

I cast on with the first of the finished skeins of #Ouessant wool a few days ago, I'm really pleased with how it's knitting up so far. It's amazing to think this time last week, this will was still on the sheep's back...perhaps by next Wednesday it will be on my shoulders? 🐏

With everything that’s been going on behind the scenes this week I completely forgot to share that we dropped of the wool for our new base at the mill last week- YAY!! I’ll share more details about that soon, but for now it’s on to developing a second batch of Origin. Here are some of the sheep that provided the wool for last year’s batch- we can’t wait for this year’s! 🐑🐏 #raincloudandsageyarn #raincloudandsageorigin

It’s a lovely day for packing orders, windows wide open and coffee in hand 📦💌💪 Thank you all so much again for your support of last week’s shop update, really and truly. We’ve sold out of the beloved Little Blooms bag but there are still a few Geoshapes kits up in the shop if you’re interested ✨ #raincloudandsageyarn

P E R F E C T D A Y S slow, sunny, knitting. // Handmade ceramic yarn bowls still available in the etsy shop! // #heymamawolfyarns #indigolove #yarnbowl

D Y E & D R Y nicest thing about this wonderful sunny windy weather is that the yarns can dry outside again. Perfect and fast. I think that outside dried wool has a special fresh smell. Or i'm just imagining this. This very dark indigo blue is for a special project that i can't tell you about yet. But the blue is the dream, isn't it? // #heymamawolfyarns #organicwool #indigolove
