Happy Holidays!

x Bookmark Firstly, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, from the deepest fiber of my stash, and with a big virtual hug, for your amazing support of Fiberygoodness over the course of 2017! In many ways it has been a tumultuous year, but it has also been an exciting one, with what feels like a consolidation of Fiberygoodness itself and where we are going with it. I will write more about this in the

Home Made Hackle Tutorial: Ineke de Brouwer

x Bookmark Tutorial home-made double row hackle A while ago we ran an Evolution challenge on making rolags in many different ways, it was awesome, lots of innovation and wonderful fibers! One of the people who contributed was Ineke de Brouwer, with rolags she had created on her own home made hackle. I thought it would be a great thing to know how to make your own hackle, and Ineke very kindly made this tutorial to share with us! This

Turkish Spindling Course and a New Evolution Project!

x Bookmark This has been a fun week in Fiberygoodness land! We have launched a brand new Course Tutored by Evanita; and it has really inspired me! This is Evanita’s “Spinning with Turkish Spindles: Singles to Plying” online course. It is wonderful, and has got me spinning away and making my first actual ‘yarn turtle’ on my Majacraft spindle. I mean, you cant fail to be inspired by Evanitas spinning.. The course is awesome, Evanita has created videos for demonstration

The Fiberygoodness Evolution Rolag Challenge!

The Fiberygoodness Evolution Rolag Challenge!

x Bookmark After our successful trials of our ‘Evolution’ projects, it was time to move it into our main group page and share the fun with even more people. So the challenge was begun! The instructions were as follows: Yes my fellow fibery gods and goddesses, this is a whole new world of rampant rolly rolags, fantastic fluffed up fiber, mixy mashups of mightyness! The rolag is our focus for the next three weeks. Are you up to the challenge!?

Spinning Creativity and Skill building!

Spinning Creativity and Skill building!

x Bookmark This week I thought I would post about two things I think we all need as fiber artists; ‘creativity‘ and ‘skill‘. By skill I mean the ability to execute different techniques for spinning different yarns. When we start spinning the focus is very much on developing our skills, and this is exactly the focus required! We learn the techniques for spinning singles of varying thicknesses, and develop skills for judging the amount of twist in our yarns and

x Bookmark This has been a busy but rewarding few weeks at the Woolwench house! (and its wonderful to once again be able to say ‘Woolwench House’ because we are finally proper settled in our own place).  And now we are comfortable I have been working on some Fiberygoodness STUFF!  The first of which is a re-release of our popular Spinning Course “S3”: “Sketch Spin Scribe’. I love this particular course, it has elements of history, story telling, spinning, and

Exploring Elements with Christiane Knight

x Bookmark This week we are sharing in the process of fiber creation with our current Artist In Residence: Christiane Knight. These insights into how Chris works are both inspiring and motivational, and it is exciting to see the way she has approached what could be quite a daunting task, with flair and creativity! The rest of this post is provided by Christiane, I know you will enjoy it as much as I have!  🙂 When I decided that my

Cosmic Customisation: Pioneer

Cosmic Customisation: Pioneer

x Bookmark The Majacraft Pioneer, in my opinion it just doesn’t get all the attention it deserves, often overshadowed by its stunning sister wheels Aura, Rose, and Suzie. But the humble Pioneer, what a dream she is to spin on! She might not have the curvaceous lines of the Aura, or the classy classic style of the Suzie and Rose, but she really knows how to get a yarn spun and contains all the components that are every bit as

Merino

Merino

x Bookmark A Brief History of Merino Wool Way back in the depths of time, not hidden but certainly unclear, are the origins of the sheep breed we know as Merino. We can easily find information on its recent history, but delving back before the Spanish developed and refined the breed into the one we are familiar with today, reveals that there can be conflicts in information and shows a potentially broad origin indicated in the development of this prized
