The theme of the Phat Fiber Box for April 2017 was Cupcakes and Candy. This gave me a great opportunity to visit some old fashioned sweetie shops to test out sweets for colours and taste ;-)
Eventually I decided to base my colourway on the penny sweets we used to be able to buy in the village shop which were called 'Flying Saucers'.
The flying saucers are made from a type of rice paper, with sherbet in the centre.
For this light, open, hand pulled roving I have used soft, 21 micron merino in shades of yellow, green, blue and pink, blended with mulberry silk and baby llama - with a little sparkle of Angelina (if you would prefer this to be missed out in your roving, just leave a message when you order). The roving is made by blending the fibres together on my drum carder, and then drafting the fibres from the drum carder using a diz.
This hand pulled roving is light and airy, and will draft effortlessly into a fine yarn.
You will recieve 100g of hand pulled roving nests in the Flying Saucer colourway - without the addition of the Flying saucer sweets shown in the photographs - sorry!
