I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a total sucker for new and different fibers to knit with. Wool and cotton and acrylics are all great for most knitting needs, but it’s always a little thrilling to try out buffalo or musk ox or yak. (It’s a knitterly thrill, but a thrill nonetheless.)
So I was very excited when Liz of Gnarledpaw, a dyer I know and love, recently announced an Explorer’s Club! You can sign up for either 3 or 6 half-skeins of mystery exotic fibers, and you get to choose warm or cool colors, and solids or variegated.
I signed up of course, mostly because I decided not to buy any more yarn this year, and am looking forward to my first package in mid-February! She had dropped some hints as to the type of fiber we may be getting, but I suspect there’s no telling where we will wind up, now that we’ve stepped outside our doors 🙂
More on the mystery fibers as they arrive!
