  195. barbara says:

    How gorgeous! This is definitely going to be a ‘selfie’ – just for me !

  196. Julie says:

    Loved the picture of the wool. Think it’s really clever of them to produce the wool in skiens as apose to the balls. Haven’t knitted with wool in a skien but I did watch a Miss Marple where she was solving a murder and using the detective to hold his hands out to hold the wool to turn it into balls. Good idea. I can get my husband to help me whilst I tell him exactly what I need him to hear! How clever of you.

  197. Gale G says:

    Beautiful colours, wool with silk content has a lovely sheen too.

  198. Sue Hunt says:

    Love the look & texture of this yarn. Also reminds me when I was a child helping my nan turning the skeins into balls. I think I might have inherited my knitting skill from her although she didn’t always need a pattern. She made wonderful shawls for babies, every pregnant mum in the family received one, even my daughter had one for her daughter. Love the Magenta & Lilac colours.

  199. AmyO says:

    I am loving this blog with the history of the Aran jumper and learning about how angora wool is produced. The Flyspates yarns are really gorgeous with such rich colors! Making a shawl out of them would be a dream!

  203. Tina Gordon says:

    The internet is such a wonderful thing – but also rather a bigt tease.

    I have long drooled over pictures of the gorgeous colours and subtle shading of Fibrespates yarn, but never had the oportunity to touch it for real. It looks sooo luciously soft.

  204. Fiona C says:

    just lovely, I have been coveting this yarn for a while, have several projects in my head, can’t decide which colour to start with …….

  205. This yarn looks beautiful! I would love to have this in my stash!

  206. Linda Millar says:

    Wow! what a generous offer you have made, I hope you are prepared for the flood of “takers” you will have. The skeins are gorgeous, so much sheen and lustre. I am taken back to my youth, with my mum and I partnering to wind balls from skeins. It was a lovely bonding session for us with the opportunity to talk of things we otherwise would not have done. I miss her a lot. Thank you for the memories. Linda

  207. Cecelia M Aguallo says:
