Wool Week

Quite by chance I am doing something exciting with wool on Sunday and I will be mentioning Wool Week as I do so.
To prepare my materials I had to order some rather uninspiring but very necessary natural Shetland top from Sara's Texture Crafts. I love working with Shetland and much prefer it to Merino -  I said 'uninspiring' as you will know by now that I am rather fond of colour (often more than one at a time!) and Sara has some amazing hand dyed Shetland tops in fabulous hues but I restrained myself as my hamper of fluff is already stuffed and overflowing. 

However I did sneak something colourful into my order that I have had my eye on for a while...





It really is as good as I imagined, if not better!
...I loved watching the tones and colours change as I wound it into this....


....beautifully soft rainbow....


...perfectly palm sized!

I can't wait to use it....

Why am I thinking of fizzy sherbets when I look at that little bundle in your hand?
