I have over 60 new skeins of yarn for the online store. I did a massive dye project and hand painted 57 200 yd skeins in less than 24 hours. They were at the Salida Fiber Festival and are now going into the Alba Shop to get ready for the Holiday Shopping.
Here is a shot of them all hanging on the line to dry in my garden.
Most are in colorways of about 6 skeins, with each skein being 200 yds. One 200 yd skein will make a lacy scarf and 2 skeins making a lovely shawl.
I have 21 skeins of 100% pure Angora Rabbit lace weight 2 ply yarn. This yarn is a stunning 28 wpi! Such a delicate fine 2 ply lace yarn.
I have 36 skeins of a blend of 60% merino and 40% mohair. This yarn is dyed in about 8 different color ways. This fiber was grown here on Alba Ranch in the Colorado Mountains. It came from 2 white merino sheep, White Mama and Crazy 208. The 3 white angora goats were Michelle (grandma), Lucy (mom), and Sami (wethered grandson).
I also have a six skeins of Baby Woo Boo. This yarn is 35% baby alpaca, 30% merino, 30% bamboo and 5% nylon binder. It is a wonderful soft, stretchy boucle with lots of bounce and is still very lightweight.
I hand painted all these skeins myself and love the colorways. I am just starting to photograph them and will be uploading them to the shop here shortly over the next week.
I have taken over 100 photographs of the yarns and all the Lincoln Long Wool Locks. Now they are all edited and I will be uploading them in the shop as I get them done.
I have decided to include a few photos of the yarns just to tease you. Keep an eye out here as they come your way.
