This is a fiery blend of scarlet Bluefaced Leicester, purple silk and bright yellow Merino, which has been lightly blended so that the mix of colours comes through in the yarn.  It spins up into the most wonderful, rich red/orange yarn, with royal purple depths.

Tyrion - Merino/Alpaca/Peduncle silk - 100g

70% Merino / 15% Peduncle silk / 15% Baby Alpaca

This fibre is as complex and beguiling as its namesake. It is a blend of buttery soft Merino in wine red, maroon and gold, bronze peduncle silk and black baby alpaca. It is easy to draft and spins into a delicious yarn with lots of depth of colour and plenty of drape.  It's next to skin soft and perfect for mitts, shawls or larger items like sweaters as it's beautifully warm.

 

Kite Flying - Corriedale/Merino/Flax

57% Corriedale / 29% Merino / 14% Flax

Kite Flying is a beautifully textured blend of Corriedale and Merino in rich blues and greens, topped off with bright pink flax. It's a delight to spin, and the flax adds pops of colour and texture which are really fun to draft and make the resulting yarn sing.  It's perfect for bright shawls and hats, as it has plenty of drape thanks to the flax, while the Corriedale and Merino provide bounce and warmth.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.

Description

I’m a huge fan of Turkish spindles. They are bottom weighted and tend to be very stable. On top of this, when you spin, you create a centre pull ball on the spindle itself, which you can then use to ply with, without worrying about winding the single yarn off for plying.

These 3D printed spindles made by Jen Kemery of Turtlemade have even more advantages than most.

They are extremely well balanced, and have a lovely long spin, making them ideal for beginners. They won’t break when dropped, which is great even for experienced spinners – we all drop them sometimes! You can also use them as supported spindles as well as drop spindles.

These micro spindles are really dinky, and will fit in almost any bag or pocket.  They are feather light and have a fast spin, making them ideal for fine yarns, including cobweb.

The measurements are: 3″ shaft, 4″ arms

The spindle arms are made from PLA, which is a durable, biodegradable thermoplastic. Don’t worry! It only starts to biodegrade when exposed to extreme heat. Jen recommends that you don’t leave it in the car on a hot day. The shafts are made from moulded ABS plastic, which is known for its impact resistant properties. Handy for a drop spindle!
