Spindelicious Yarn and Wool works uses fibers that have been sourced from farms that are cruelty and muesling free. When possible I source from American, and/or local fiber farms.
Here is a rotating list of spinning fibers I stock in my colorways for your spinning pleasure. I'm always looking to add more fun and delicious fibers:
•LIMITED EDITION #spindeliciousbucketlist fiber: Every month I feature a limited edition heritage breed, rare, or not widely utilized fiber for your spinning pleasure! This idea started because of a conversation I had with a fellow fiber artist on Instagram chatting about all the fibers we would love to spin in our lifetime. There’s over 1,000 breeds of sheep out there (not to mention goats, etc!) so I thought, how fun would it be to start spinning through my bucket list! Join me in this monthly exploration of spinning fibers! Check out the hashtag on Instagram to see current or past months offerings.
•DELICIOUS MIX BAGS: A 4+oz. surprise of hand-dyed, delicious mix of fibers. Curated by color and always a surprise. Your delicious mix may include Angora, Mohair locks, Superwash, Gotland locks, BLF, Targhee, Polywarth, Merino, Silk, Bamboo, and other fun fiber treats. Always a joy to spin and let your creativity drive your yarn-artistry as you control the color combos.
•SPINDELICIOUS SILKY SOCK-60% Superwash Merino/30% Bamboo/10% Nylon: Ideal for creating sock yarn, and any other silky yarn needs. SOOO soft, silky smooth and fluffy. Bamboo is a vegetable fiber and resists dye, so this magical mix of fibers results in incredible shine and lighter streaked tones throughout. Perfect when mixed with the merino and nylon which dye up super bright! Bamboo also has natural anti-bacterial properties, and feels absolutely lovely on your feet or against your skin. The merino adds cozy warmth, and the nylon brings durability to the finished yarn. This fiber is shiny, silky and a joy to spin. Superwash resists felting.
•SPIN-SKINNY: 100% Superwash Merino pencil roving. Super soft and easy to spin. Superwash dyes up super vibrant because superwash wool has been treated to remove the scales on the wool creating a more porous fiber that resists felting.
•SPINDELICIOUS CLASSIC-100% Merino: 21.5 microns. 3-5 inch staple length. A classic. Squishy and lovely.
•MY BFF BLF-100% BFL (Blue Faced Leicester): My favorite. Lustrous shine, and silky with a long staple length and bounce. Delightful to spin.
•SPINDELICIOUS LUX-80% Polywarth, 20% Mulberry Silk: A lux fiber that is so worth the splurge! Cloud-like. Mulberry Silk is the finest silk available. This blend is so silky soft with incredible strength, shine, and bounce. A joy to spin.
•POLY LOVE-100% Polywarth: 22-24 microns. The Polywarth breed was created by crossing Lincoln and Merino creating one amazing and adaptable sheep. Its fiber has a long staple length and creates a smooth, strong yarn that can even be used alone for a wonderful sock yarn. It's another fun, soft fiber that is easy to spin. Perfect for beginners or people just wanting to try out some different fibers.
•MAGIC CLOUDS: Magic Clouds are a big, fluffy soft, 2 oz. carded mixed-fiber surprise with a healthy dose of sparkle. Fibers can include: Merino, Bamboo, Tussah Silk, Blue-Faced Leicester, Targhee, yearling Mohair locks, Lincoln, Rambouillet, Angelina, Firestar...always a surprise. Depending on how fine you spin this you can get enough yardage for a small project with one 2 oz. Magic Cloud. Or spin up the yarn to add some interest to another project. Let your creativity drive your yarn-artistry!
•LUSTER LOCKS-100% Gotland: Beautiful, lustrous curl pattern, long staple, reminiscent of mohair with a lovely drape when spun. Great fiber to spin from locks. Sourced from Unspun Acres in Conrad, Montana; a small, ethical family fiber farm and close friends of mine.
