Hulduband dyed as the Aurora Borealis. 😊 Now I am on an introduction tour in the North and the first day was a success. So happy with all the lovely visitors. Maybe I will be lucky and see Aurora Borealis at my stay here.
New sock yarn is getting ready. Finer than dvergasokkar (our thick sock yarn) and are going to be named huldusokkar since it is close to hulduband's weight. We've got three colours and three different labels... Now we "just" have to choose the best one and do some packaging.
I want to show you two astonishing craftwork that I now have.
First a long shawl woven with my single yarn for dís, spun a bit high in one way for the warp and the other way for the weafth. Guðrún Kolbeins Jónsdóttir, a textile teacher and an expert weaver made this gorgeous soft and delightful garment.
And second is a blue HARUNI shawl knitted by Jórunn Eggertsdóttir, my mother-in-law, who is an artist in anything that concerns fine knitting crochetting, sewing etc etc. The yarn she used is dís, specially dyed for the project.
To me, both of these are unique and therefore priceless and above everything else a nourishment for the eye and soal. ❤
Our super strong 100% sock yarn; dvergasokkar, have made a hit. Nothing better on cold days than warm and cozy woolen socks. In 2020 we will present finer sock yarn which will be called huldusokkar and is the same size as hulduband (aran). It will be exciting to experience what people will think of that yarn.
No plastic is put in our yarn. It is the way we process it that gives its strength. 🧦🧦😊
We spent some days coloring our yarn. Then we started to wrap up the skeins. And of course, we had to see how these skeins make a pattern in a pair of socks 🙂
Our roving is considered to be of good quality for handspinning. Take a look at our intro: Roving. 😊
We get to try lots of exciting fiber.
Rabbitfleece (angora) just finished, seaweed yesterday and next week it will be musk ox. Never a dull moment.
