Yarn Day!

Today was my day to receive all of the yarn and fiber that I have ordered or won over the last month or two. Why it all showed up, all of it today? I don't know. I didn't order or win it all at the same time. There were boxes and packages at my door and in the mail box. I was so excited!!

So, first on the "show and tell" list is this gorgeous yarn that I won from the SAMKAL! Both are sock yarns. The lovely hand-dyed is a Merino/Tencel blend and the red is a bamboo/cotton/elastic nylon. There were also a cute set of stitch markers.
Next was my yarn order from Haneke Wool Fashions. I am either running low or out of a lot of the Haneke yarns that are in my etsy store so I re-ordered last week. I also ordered a bunch of Eucalan fine fiber wash. I don't know if any of you have tried their products, but let me be the first to tell you...IT IS FANTASTIC!! I was so impressed when I used one of the sample packs that had been sent to me that I knew it was the product for me! It leaves your items (in my case it was angora and wool socks and a wool sweater that felts if you just look at it too long) completely clean, very soft, smelling good, and the yarn looks brand new again. I really like it. I will be giving out free samples with every yarn order from now on, plus you will be able to purchase 2 oz. bottles of it.
And last, but certainly not least is my fiber order from WOW!! And I thought it was beautiful on the computer picture. There is "Araucuna--Blackbird Series" which is a superwash wool fiber with threads of sari silk running through it. (ooooo! ahhhhhh! yes I know!)
Then the 100% silk roving in "Sedona". (more oooooing! and Ahhhhhhhing!)
And the little free sample of LOVELY, TEMPTING, fiber. Which I am sure is meant to entice me to purchase a larger amount of it.

So if I dont' post again this week. You know what I am up to! I can't wait to spin this fiber up!!!

By the way, if you don't have any extra money or space left to hide more yarn and fiber DON'T go to! WOW! They have some of the most beautiful fiber I have EVER seen. I could easily fill my storage shed and empty the saving account there!!

Wow that is quite a haul! I love Ecualan too, especially the one with lavender in it. It makes my wool smell so yummy.
