Feast or Famine

Nothing for ages then two posts in as many days. From one extreme to the other!

Yesterday we went into Masterton, where I visited Morphodae Creative Fibre Crafts. I introduced myself to the owner, Marlene, who is a good friend of the lass I’m staying with for the moment. Mr F and I had a good chat with her about New Zealand, traveling in general, then about the serious business of fibre. I made a few purchases, which I thought was very restrained considering the very reasonable price of spinning fibre here compared to prices back home.

Clockwise from the top left:
200g of wool/silk mix. It’s 75% black halfbred wool mixed with 25% rainbow silk noils.
100g of 50/50 silk/mohair mix in Amethyst.
100g of unknown wool in Autumn Leaves.

All three are from the Little Wool Co. in New Zealand. The colours are a bit washed out in the photos, because the sun is so bright, but trust me, they’re all lovely.
