My Fiber Stash is Growing

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…

  1. 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!

    1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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:

    1. 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?

      1. 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.
