Happy Wool Day!

Now today is the kind of Thursday I think I could get the hang of! After a long, hot trip to the grocery store I came home to three boxes of woolly goodness: a roving order for the shop, my Phat Fiber contributors box, and the Phat Fiber fluff box that I ordered. Score! Now I have some lovely Phat fluff to spin for TdF13. I'm getting tired of spinning only my own fibers. Ordering the sample box is a great way to find out what sort of fibers and prep I like the most - it also give me variety.

Two pounds of Corriedale, one pound of Polwarth, one pound of superwash BFL, a quarter of an ounce (I know, right?) of Angelina, and some blue dye.

This is from the mixed contributor box.

More from the contributor box.

Fluff box!

More fluff.


My two littlest ones were just as excited about these boxes as I was. I love that they can share in my passion like that. The Beast instantly absconded with a bag by Fiber Faire and some Falkland roving by Beesybee Fibers. The Imp fell in love with the soap from Three Waters Farm and some Polwarth roving by Shadawyn Fiber Arts. I'm personally excited about the Friends in Fiber "Nautilus" rolag. I've never spun from a rolag before and am anxious to give it a try.

But to be honest, I love it all. This box is absolutely stunning.


  1. Oh yes - I see one of my samples. The Jacob/silk base, not the softest, but shimmering :-)

  2. That is some fabulous mail! I love sharing my wool love with my kids too - makes it even more fun!

  3. Looks like Christmas! Super fun.
    Can you tell me how/where you order this please- I would love this.
