My Fibreshare Package 01/2019

[advertisement: unpaid links]

This was a very happy mail day! I am still overwhelmed by the contents of this huge package! Let’s take a closer look:

In the centre, there is a picture by my Fibreshare partner’s little-one who also wanted to contribute something. It is an assortment of hearts used as card on the other side. What a beautiful idea!

On top of the painting, there are two packs of super yummy fine green tea from Nordic Tea so good that I am considering ordering some more.

Now to the wrapped packages:

Starting top left and moving counterclockwise, there is a hank of purple Filcolana Genuine Greenland Wool. It is aran weight, so very far from the fine yarns I usually work with, but I love everything about it and will find a suitable project for it. I think it would look fantastic as a hat.

Next, there is a hank of perfect, dark grey Hjelholts Uldspinderi Dansk Pelsuld. Exactly what I love and a perfect match to the dark grey ball of Læsø Uldstue Klitgarn next to it.

I was a bit surprised about the neon pink Grignasco Kid Silk Five, but it actually is a really good cold pop colour for a special project.

Right from it, there is a ball of almost black Wool Addicts Earth, a bulky weight yarn that asks me to be turned into some experimental project using very different yarn weights at once.

Below, you can see two balls of black BC Garn Semilla Fino, one of my favourite yarn brands. It is fingering weight wool, so I will easily find a project for it.

The green yarn cake is handdyed and matches the black Filcolana Indiecita both in composition and yardage, so I probably will knit something using both of them.

Between the two alpaca yarns, there are two balls of black Navia Uno, a yarn I have not heard of before, but urge to swatch. With 700m/100g it is a laceweight yarn consisting of Faroese, Shetland and Australian wool. Already a pleasure to touch and look at it!

The yellow yarn is Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles in wiggle, a colour I never would have bought myself but which contrasts black surprisingly well.

The green one is Sysleriget sock in a very difficult colourway for me, but as I really like colourful socks, I probably will turn it into a pair of short socks.

The little extras on top are two eucalan samples (I always wanted to try it but was too lazy to order some), some stitch markers and a beautiful cat-themed enamel pin.

My cat Jimmy, of course, occupied the box as soon as there was enough space for him.

Thank you so much for this extremely generous Fibreshare package! I really appreciate it a lot! And in case anyone still has not participated, you really should give Fibreshare a try. I love it!
