Handspun Yarn For Sale Now!

I love to make my own handspun yarn. And I've come to the realization that I will never use all that I have in my lifetime. So, I decided to share some. I listed a few in the shop today. The Clay Sheep

New Swirl DIZ & Threader Sets Listed!

New Swirl DIZ & Threader Sets listed in the shop today!

What is a DIZ?
A diz is used in the final step of combing fibers for spinning. You can diz off of combs, hackles & even a drum carder. The hole in the diz controls how much fiber can come through at one time -- it gets all bunched up and hard to pull, if you are pulling too much through. So, it does control the thickness of the resulting top.
You can still draft it out finer in spinning, and dizzed top usually drafts very easily, if you want a finer yarn.

NEW Sheep DIZ Sets Listed!

I tested the sheep DIZ today. It worked great. I tried rubbing the sheep side in the fibers & it wouldn't snag anything, awesome!

Here is a photo with it in use.

And here is the yummy braid of hand pulled roving that I made.

I got four different ones listed in the store. Check out the colored sheep & the little alpaca or llamas.
