I was in San Antonio for less than three hours but managed to find a yarn store just before closing. (Fellow hard-core knitters can relate).
Tammy Rabideau, the owner of Yarnivore, walked me through their fiber selection. She was very helpful in showing me to gauge how many yards of yarn I might be able to spin from each batch of fiber.
This is what I brought home.
Top: Hand dyed Silky Cashmerino by Frabjous Fibers. This blend of 70% superfine merino, 15% cashmere, and 15% mulberry silk is hand dyed in Vermont. This is color #247 Verbena.
Bottom: A lovely soft Silk/Merino Silver in color #7 Mulberry.
Now to finish spinning the mohair currently on my spindle…

Ooohhh! How delicious!
Such pretty blues!
They made me think of summer.
OOOOHHHHH, gimme, gimme, gimme! My daughter lives in Austin, a Southern California girl transplant. I’m making a list of places to visit when we visit!
She might be familiar with Hill Country Weavers in Austin. This yarn store is in a Victorian house with wood floors and nooks all over. It’s on a street with resale and other curio shops. You must go if you’re in Austin!
When I walk into a yarn store, I feel like an alcoholic walking into a bar …
Or a kid in a candy store and a pocket full of change!
Beautiful fiber… What are your plans for these beauties ?
No specific plans – just had to have them!!
Beautiful! And they look like they will spin up SO soft! Now I have to curb my fiber monster long enough to remember I have enough to spin up at the moment….don’t I? LOL!
This sounds so much like me! “I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, and I have projects already started, but I want it!” Granted, I don’t spin, but I wish you luck with whatever you decide to do with it.
Thanks for the like, by the way, I was just browsing your blog, it’s quite neat! c:
I really liked the colors of the yarn you dyed – the one in the pic (in your hand with the red nails). Sounds like you dyed it further after that?
Sadly, I did, I should have waited a day or three before dyeing it again, but I didn’t. I learned though! I’m balling it up and letting it sit for a while before doing anything else with it. I wouldn’t say it’s a bad shade right now, just…not what I was going for.
