After selling out of her popular colorways, The Cryptozoologist has decided to change things up a little. Instead of dyeing and listing one skein at a time, she has added preorders to her Etsy shop. You can now order up to five skeins at a time of her most popular repeatable colorways, including the Tokyo Mew Mew and Adventure Time shades. In addition, there are two new colorways, including The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is part of a Wes Anderson-inspired line, and Burmecia, which is part of Louise’s long-running Final Fantasy range.
For those of you participating in this year’s Tour de Fleece, a massive spin-along that runs until July 26, during the Tour de France, now’s the perfect time to pay a visit to the Cedar Hill Farm Company. Keya just started carrying spinning fiber in the shop! First up is a 100% superwash Merino top, hand painted in bright, long color repeats, a good choice for spinning self-striping fingering weight yarn. Over the next week, she will also be adding drum carded batts made with luxurious undyed alpaca and llama blends. The fiber, from some of the best alpaca and llama breeders in Georgia, Florida and Virginia, is carded on Keya’s farm.
