Bright Shiny Objects!

Welcome to the world of automation!

That’s a three-at-a-time electric powered skein winder, and it can do in about 5 minutes what it took me 20 minutes to do by hand! Now I can spend less time winding and more time dyeing! Which is exactly what I’ve done:

All those, plus other bright shiny objects, are available in my shop: www.fibermorphosis.com. Just click the “shop” link in the left hand column! I have an amazing new merino/tencel yarn that takes color beautifully, shines just enough, and feels wonderful – so soft! And don’t overlook the squishy soft superwash wool/nylon blend.

My skein winder has enabled me to offer a new service – custom yardage. Would you prefer a 300 yard skein? Or perhaps a 500 yard skein? Just let me know – I am quite happy to dye custom lengths. I will also dye any combination of the colors that you see on my yarns – mix-and match!

Grand Opening

I’m happy to announce the grand opening of my virtual fiber shop, Fibermorphosis(tm)! Visit my website ~ www.fibermorphosis.com to have a look at some of my yarn and fiber, and click on the “Shop” tab to go to my Etsy shop. Check back soon as I will be adding many skeins of fingering weight yarn (socks and scarves, anybody?) in the near future. It’s taking me a while to stock up because my dyeing process is a little slow. I dye my yarn with very small color repeats rather than using long color blocks. It takes time, but it creates a yarn than doesn’t stripe or pool when you knit, which I think is worth the extra time I spend. I’ll be dyeing in my July colorways: Citrus Twist, Creamsicle, and Transcend, along with some other colors ~ we’ll see where the dyes lead me!Citrus TwistCreamsicleTranscend
