Well, even though the blog hasn’t been super active, all sorts of wild and wonderful happenings have been occurring behind the scenes at Fibre Goddess. Each day, this little dream of starting my own fibre business comes closer and closer to reality.
Besides lots of spinning, I have started dyeing yarn and fibre! This has been such a fun and amazing experience and I’m so excited to show the world what I’ve been up to.
My first step on this journey was to figure out what yarn bases I should carry. Being the over thinker that I am, I can tell you that much time went into this process. All wholesalers suggest that retailers rename their bases to something their customers will recognize as their own. As I am a complete and utter pop culture junkie, I decided that my bases will be named after pop culture icons and my colourways will be named after moments, songs, movie lines, etc.
I present to you the yarn bases for Fibre Goddess’ handdyed yarn:
Cash – SW(superwash) 80% SW Merino/10%Cashmere/10%Nylon Sock Yarn 375yd/115g
This is named of course after the incomparable Johhny Cash and for it’s cashmere content, which makes this yarn incredibly soft.
