These are from the same teeswater fleece with around 6” staple length. The pink locks have been separated before washing and the mustard locks have been separated after washing and dyeing. The pink ones look wayyy more delectable but the mustard ones take half the time to prepare. Would you rather pay less for the squished up locks or more for the perfectly separated locks? Oh the dilemmas of a fiber artist.  (at www.nessaland.com)

Really loving this box of forgotten batts. Each one like a new treasure. So different from where I’m at now. A little breath of fresh air :-)

Working on some winter festival knits. These teeny tinies are so dang cute! And they are really fun to knit - no patterns - always one of a kind! Perfect for newborn photography or to gift to a new mama. Hats start at $30 for newborns and goes up a few dollars per size. #freeformknitting#fiberarts#handknit#handspunyarn#artyarn#knitting#newbornphotoprop#newbornphotography#photoprop#handspunstagram  (at www.nessaland.etsy.com)

Anyone else on a forever-organizing-the-studio spree? At least once a week I feel the need to revamp things. My blending merino now lives on the wall so I could free up a basket for the ever growing pile of silk. #fiberarts #fiberporn #merino (at www.nessaland.com)

Last night I spun up this batt that has been unloved in a forgotten corner of my studio. It’s mostly natural white/tan alpaca, a little grey and pale icy blue merino, cream and grey bamboo. Very smooth and boring. I spun it into a thick single with lockspun sections of icy blue kid mohair and random tailspun wisps of mustardy copper. Hot damn, I love it! So much for “boring” pfffft.
