Today was a record breaking felting day! With the help of my fantastic team, we managed to get 641 soaps hand wrapped, felted, and out to dry. Here’s a few sights of the soap drying.
Here’s a picture of the drying rack, custom made by my step dad. When it’s full, it makes me think of baking cookies.
I always love seeing this many drying. Means we had a good, crazy, busy day! We wholesale our Felted Soaps worldwide. Tomorrow, we will have a full day of labeling.
Getting ready for the Spring Maraket in Memphis. Hope to see you there.
This week was full of lots of fibery fun. Zoe is back to finish her internship and a brand new intern, Kate, started too!Thursday was FREEZING! Zoe and I dyed fibers. Within minutes the hot steaming fiber, hanging up to dry, turned into fibercicles.
Also, I made a couple new yarns.
Finished Handspun Yarn
One more made this last week too! This one was a demonstration for Kate to show her how the drum carder and spinning wheel work. Here’s the basket of fluff:
Because I was sharing the process with Kate, I missed taking a photograph of the carded batt. Below is the picture of the finished yarn:
Lastly, the week was full of lots of new felted soaps:
Sorry for all the pictures and few words, but this week was crazy busy!
I had a massive dyed day the other day and guess what the major color theme was? Yup! Cupid just came along and puked pink all over the studio. With Valentine’s Day coming up and spring just around the corner, it was time to bust out the pink shades. Here are the fibers hanging up to dry:
Once dried, I blended a few of the colors together with both more reds and some yellows and created these carded batts:
From the card batts I felted a few soaps. Retail Stores want Valentine’s Day Soaps for their stores.
Giving soap to a loved one is a funny thought for the holiday of love. They do make excellent teacher, family, or co-worker gifts. Unless you need to tell your significant other they stink or to clean up their act….then by all means! Felted Soap is the perfect gift. 😉With the freshly dyed pink fibers, I also created a new “Fluff to String” handspun yarn. Here is the basket of fluff:The Carded Batt:
The Finished Handspun Yarn:
This yarn is now available in our store. Check it out!
What are you up to for Valentine’s Day? Do you have lots of crafty things in store? I’d love to hear all about it. ♥
