Do you have enough fiber for your Tour de Fleece?

  • A braid of green and blue fiber.

There are only a few more days until the Tour de Fleece starts. In case you haven’t heard of it before: it is a worldwide (online) event for spinners to challenge themselves and cheer each other on. It happens every year during the time of the famous Tour de France.

As I am an enthusiastic spinner myself, I have washed, picked, carded and dyed up a storm for you and added some more fibers to my shop. They are all ready to ship, with free shipping in the U.S., and I will in fact add more in the next few days (some batches are still drying as I am writing this).

So check out my shop and get all the fiber for your Tour de Fleece!

And if you are not a spinner:
I also have handspun yarn, like “Green Spring” that you can see in one of the pictures above.

And if you are really adventurous: why not learn to spin? I also offer beginner’s kits with written and video instructions and should you ever have any questions, you can always contact me.

Enjoy!

PLY March Update!

  • Skeins of pink, gray, blue and purple yarn.

Happy March Everyone,
It has been a busy month here at Pancake and Lulu! Hope everyone's beginning to feel the freshness of Spring in the air (or Fall, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere)!

I just wanted to let pop in to let you know that I have a few new Spring 2021 Colorways. Shown here are Cactus Flower, Night Lilac, Lily of the Valley and Peonies & Blueberries. These speckled colorways coordinate beautifully with my semi-solid collection. They are all available to order on any of my many regular bases, including Suri Silk, Mohair, Lux DK and American Merino Roving.

I have also created a few yarn kits for the upcoming MKAL by Ambah O'Brien. These are available on several of my fingering bases, but hurry up if you would like to receive yours before the start date of April 4th! I still can't decide which I will choose for mine. 😆

I am in love with beautiful glass Czech beads! I have made several new stitch marker / progress keeper sets – check them out in my shop. The one shown here is called Cornflower.

Highlights coming up next month: Pre-orders for my 2021 Advent Calendar will be open as well as the April Full Moon Colorway.

Enjoy the beautiful change in season,

xx, Aimee
