Felt Studio UK Hand Spun Yarn

We just posted some gorgeous new yarns from Felt Studio in the UK. Daniela is a very very talented fiber artist. Make sure to check out her ETSY shop for more of her handspun yarns. Many people don't know what to do with handspun yarns and there are so many ways to use them. They often can be used on their own or mixed with other yarns to make a one skein project. You can use them as trim on the top of a pair of socks, the cuff of gloves or on the end of sleeves. So many knitters, including myself, stick to the pattern instead of being creative. I keep waiting for a great book to come out showing unusual ways to use handspun yarn combined with other yarns.

Anyhow, give it a try with some of these. Look at this one Daniella hand dyed the fiber, hand carded it and then spun the yarn. She then attached tiny velvet flowers to the yarn. Talk about creative!!

Coming soon, a new Black Pearl Yarns sweater and knit knit, this one is perfect for the holidays. It is so beautiful! We also have new kits from Fleece Artist/HandMaiden coming soon, and several new indie companies we are excited about....

We have a new section we will be adding to the site in the next week, loaded with all kinds of knit and crochet kits for every type of garment.....

Are you on Ravelry? Make sure to join our One Planet Knitters group there!!
