Dear Sun,

Please stay a while and dry my yarns for my shows! Thank you, I promise to plant lots more flowers this year to smile back up at you.

Yours,

Sara (crazy coloured lady)

whitejanuary replied to your post: Off to grab some lunch, meet a yarn agent and then…

Oh wow! How fabulishious. OooOo saw on your blog about Wonderwool Wales. Thinking about coming along. Would be great meeting you and many other talented peeps! Canna wait!!! X

Sara’s Texture Crafts: I really do recommend Wonderwool wales, it’s the biggest show I’ll do this year and probably the largest country wide… dedicated to all things wool, that is! Would definately be good to say ‘Hi’ and show you my carding demo. Sxx

 

BFL Humbug, Merino in Cherry Red and Shetland handdyed spun up into 50g singles for the yard sale at www.sarastexturecrafts.com

 
Foam Pads for needle felting - £0.99
In Stock: 20
Foam Needle Felting Pads are ideal for needlefelters to place their work on during construction. These pads measure approx. 9inch x 9inch x 1.5inch (23 x 23 x 4cms).

EX-DISPLAY. These are dicoloured (yellowed), but perfectly useable for needlefelting.

Fluff bags - £4.75
In Stock: 42 

These bags are full of scraps, more than broken tops. They are ideal for felting, carding into batts for spinning, or embelishing.

The scraps range from bag to bag in colour and content… most of each bag will probably be Merino, but you must expect traces of other wool and animal fibres, silks and beyond!

 
Broken Roving Bags - £15.00
In Stock: 15
 
These bags are lengths of tops/roving that are slightly broken or imperfect for selling, or display. They are still great for spinning and felting, but have been reduced in price.

Contians: Mostly Merino, but other wool tops also.

 

Norwegian C1 Batt - £1.50
In Stock: 1
 
 
Natural Dye Kit - £5.00
In Stock: 6
 

Natural hand dying can be a complicated process, but The Mulberry Dyer’s ‘Mediaeval Dye Kit’ explains this ancient art so simply that you can enjoy the craft in your own home!

Pack includes;

2 yellow and 2 red dyes

Alum, cream of tartar

Full instructions

Please take care when using these chemicals.

 

DISCONTINUED STOCK 

 
 
Felt Making Kit - £1.99
In Stock: 3

A simple kit to learn the basics of wet felting. Would make a great kit to make with children.

 
 

So, I’m supposed to be on my wheel spinning, making yarn for the yard sale 27th Feb. It’s 3:30pm and I should have had about 2-3 hours worth of work done by now… instead I’m stuck on paperwork :(

Still on the plus side, I’ve had some really wonderful phone calls and emails from customers this afternoon… so that’s cheers me up no end… Thank you Ladies!

Must get back to some carding tomorrow!

I still need to finish the two boxes I want to get filled for the yard sale. I’ve just had some interest from new customers this morning, so it would be great to show them and talk them through how wonderful batts are, when I meet them.

Contemplating working with Shetland as a base tomorrow… I have a feel for it from all of this dyeing!

 Product of the Month:
