Fresh Fiber

A belated happy July 4th to our US followers! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend.

I've been in the studio concocting a new fiber blend for summer; Louet's superfine bamboo top layered with supersoft merino wool. I chose Louet bamboo for its sheen and generous staple length, which makes it easy to spin and gives luster to the merino wool. The bamboo also gives the mix a 'coolness' for wear in warmer weather.

And so we have Orion Bamboo/Merino Wool Hand-carded Fiber Batts in store!
