Jobo?s Favorite Things: Christmas ? Day 10

10. December 2009 12:50 by Jobo | 6 Comments

Well Folks, we’ve finally made it!  Thanks for following along with me as I spoke-out-loud about the products and gadgets that have caught my eye this season…  I hope that Santa Claus has been listening (I’ve been a GOOD GIRL goshdarnnit!) and that maybe a book or a skein or something finds a way into my stocking this year.

My Last Favorite thing of the series is more of a photo collage… with the goal of maximizing fiber content :)

Handpainted / Hand dyed / Hand Carded – Spinning Fibers!

I know some people have specific likes and dislikes when it comes to wool and fibers for spinning… I must say, at this point I really haven’t met a fiber that I didn’t like.  I like them fine and soft, and coarser and woolier. I like silk and alpaca and tencel and seacelll.  I like combed top and I like carded rolags.  I like silk caps and raw fleece.  I like handpainted wild colors and semi-solids.  I like Batts – from plain blended to wild and stipey.  I love fiber… and I love spinning.  Here are some of the nicest fibers I’ve seen around lately, from a bunch of well known suppliers.  Enjoy!

You did such a great job on this!  I only wish there were more days to come.  Can't you keep it up until Christmas? Smile

lol... I wish I could!  There are lots of interesting things out in the world aren't there?  Thank you for your feedback, I'll have to consider a series like this again sometime!

Gorgeous fibers...
I only started spinning in late spring/early summer, but up to now my favourite fibers to spin are merino and silk mixes... yumm.

Wow.. I love those fibers. For sure, they are soft and very fine. I also love the color.
Where can I buy this thing?? thanks..

My favorite things this Christmas is to have new furniture in my house and I want to have wall papers on it.
