I’m Hooked!

Memories of last simmer. I can’t wait to do it all over again.

That is all. Now back to Christmas holiday preparations.

Purification – Pure As Can Be!

You might not be aware of this but I add a drop of essential oil to my water when I rinse my hand dyed fibre and yarn. I often use Lavender essential oil but I also use a blend called Purification as well. It is the only essential oil that really takes any unpleasant odor out of the air; so many room sprays just mask the odor. Here is the list of ingredients:

  • Cymbopogon nardus† (Citronella) oil
  • Rosmarinus officinalis† (Rosemary) leaf oil
  • Cymbopogon flexuosus† (Lemongrass) oil
  • Melaleuca alternifolia† (Tea tree) leaf oil
  • Lavandula hybrida† (Lavandin) oil
  • Myrtus communis† (Myrtle) oil
  • † 100% pure, YLTG™ essential oil

Here is your chance to review some of my favorite blends as I do have more then one. 😀 They even have an advent kit you can order for December 1st!

Cheers,

Did You See These Mini skeins?

It’s so much fun to experiment with natural dyes! Now I’d like to share my experiments with you. You will receive four mini skein sets or fibre bits from my experiments dyeing with natural dyes each month. Polwarth, Cheviot or Bluefaced Leicester will be the fibre of choice. It is a certified organic super wash merino yarn. The current mini skein set looks like this:

OAQFF NATURAL DYED MINI SKEINS

The fibre bits you receive will be four 20g bundles from this group.

OAQFF NATURAL DYED COMBED TOP

I can’t wait to see what you knit or crochet with them. You know I love knitting socks so join me at my Facebook group Let’s Knit Socks. Right now it’s time for me to finish up these socks I have on the go. I’m using double pointed needles by Signature Needle Arts.

Oh I almost forgot…here is the link to get your package https://bit.ly/3AU6l9o

Dye Kits Are Available!

Embrace a touch of last summer.

OAQFF NATURAL DYE KIT

I have kits available that will supply you with mordanted fingering weight yarn (3 25g mini skeins) and 10g of dried flowers (from my garden) to dye your first skeins of yarn.
The steps outlined in the kit are very simple. It’s as simple as 1,2,3. You provide the glass jar and I will provide the rest. Once you purchase a kit you will receive an invite to become a member of a Instagram group where you’ll be able to see what others dye and post your pictures too.

If you’d like to dye your own wool I also have an E-Guide that you can download. This will give you the basic steps you need to get you on your way.
