Thrums batts and naturally dyed rovings.

Originally uploaded by midnightskyfibers

This weeks shop update is all naturally dyed yarns and fibers! Well, ok, there are thrums in some of the batts that have been chemically dyed. Thrums are the leftover bits of yarn or-in this case- fiber from when you card on a drum carder or handcarders. For yarn you would generally have to card the thrums to make them fiber-y again (like the old rag factories) , so this is just skipping a step. At any rate, I save up all the bits from carding and other "waste" fibers that my carder spits out, save them up, and blend them in to pretty batts.

You can see all of the different fibers for the update here: August 28 shop update photoset and go shop at Midnightsky Fibers Shop
