DFW Fiber Fest Fun!

As I teased yesterday, I finally am going to show off all the goodies I got at this year's DFW Fiberfest. I've missed the past two years because of work responsibilities, so I just had to make the most of it this year!

First off, Madelinetosh had a huge booth and I ended up in their corner more than once. I picked up some Tosh Merino light and and two skeins of their worsted merino cashmere blend. 

They also announced they are opening a store in Fort Worth!!! Good thing it is a bit of a drive over there, or my pocketbook would be empty.

Two skeins of The Alpaca Yarn Company Astral. It's a tencel and alpaca mix. It's so shiny and soft.

I picked up some beautiful wool from a local farm out in Lancaster, TX too. Brooks Farm Solona in the colorway Sol. It's more of a blueish-green. The color of this one was hard to capture in the photo.

And of course, since I'm trying to learn how to spin, I picked up some great fiber as well. Both are BFL, which was reccommended to me as easy for a beginner because of the long staple.

The beautiful purple is from Wooly Wonka Fibers and the blue and brown is from Two If By Hand.

I had so much fun finally being able to go to my local fiberfest. Now to spin/knit all these goodies up!


  1. beautiful beautiful haul!
    can't wait to see what you create with it all!

  2. Spinning is so fun I know you'll love it! I wish I could have gone. Even when I lived in the area I was unable to go

  3. I would so love to steal all of this yarn! Wow, it's all so beautiful. Wish I had the budget for it!


I would love to hear what you think!
