Well, this is my last shipment from the fiber club! A little sad, but it was so fun to support someone I know and to get fun goodies in the mail!
This is called Wicked Witch of the East?, and it’s a 50% alpaca/30% merino/20% silk blend. Oh, it’s so pretty! And soft. And squishy. This is the first shipment to come with a colorway name. I wonder if it’s because I teased her about it at Sheep & Wool?
… hey! It’s green fiber! Maybe I should spin for a hat …
The package was ripped when I got it, and that’s probably because she threw in a bonus braid!!! Wow! She had said there might be fun goodies depending on how many were in the club, but since I think I’m the only one who signed up, I didn’t expect anything, especially not a whole braid! The shipment was a little late, but it certainly wasn’t an inconvenience or anything — but I’ll take my consolation prize! This is an unnamed colorway with vivid pinks and deep purples. Also, it’s BFL, which I’ve never spun, so that’s exciting!
There were also two awesome little stitch markers, which I didn’t think to take a picture of. I was busy trying to (gently) shove all my new fiber into my fiber cabinet. It’s all good, just don’t open it.
Overall, even though I haven’t spun all the stuff yet, I’d say this club purchase was well worth it. I know she changed the club around after I’d signed up, so there are more options for fiber bases and amounts. Kristie’s customer service is great — she answered every question I had in a timely and friendly manner. I think about half of my actual fiber stash is Fiber Stash at this point, and I know without a doubt I will continue to repurchase! And while Kristie knows I’m blogging about the club, at no point did she ask me to review her favorably or anything like that — these are all my own opinions. Yeah, I like her stuff. Could you tell?
If you want to sign up for a fiber club, or if you want to check out her dyed bases, you can visit her Etsy shop here. You can also join the Ravelry group here, or her Facebook page here. I hope you do! It’s awesome to support small business owners, don’t you think? The fact that I added to my own stash of goodies is really secondary …
