Yesterday, I showed you the new yarns I purchased in Toronto. When I buy yarns, I always look at them to see of they can be taken apart and used in surface embellishment, if it can be felted and if it has good coverage to use in my Fibre lace Scarves. I'm pleased with these.

There are also three balls from Michael's that I bought yesterday. I included these as I wanted you to see how many different fibres make up one ball.
Have a look:

The yarn on the right separates into two different fibres:
 a soft, variegated eye lash and a thin ribbon.

Scrumptious fibres! I can see flowers in small embroideries.

These will work well in felting.

From Michaels for $3.99
I took apart the lime green one (from Michaels). Look at the
various embellishment threads!

These needle felt very well.


  1. I can see that you are going to have a lot fun with these yarns - the colours are glorious!

  2. Gorgeous for needle felting and for my felted stones the last ones!Here we only get one colour of wool in each strand.AriadnefromGreece!

  3. You definitely got a treasure trove of inspiration with your yarns.
