Weaving Wishlist || Playful Yarns

Miss Knit Yarns | The Weaving LoomI recently ordered some yarn from the very talented Rosie of Miss Knit Yarns. If you love colors and texture, then you will love the yarn that Rosie dyes and spins. I’m always amazed when she posts a new yarn, her color combinations are always delightfully surprising and full of life.  Can you tell I have a mad color crush on this yarn?Miss Knit Yarns | The Weaving LoomI purchased yarn from her sherbert dye-lot, and I love it. I ended up getting three different hues of it too, from a really pastel to a very bright color. And there is still some of that yarn in her shop (at least as of writing this) including one where she plied it with gold sparkle thread.

She also sells the coolest wool batts, which are probably meant for spinners, but you can absolutely use it as roving in your weaves.

I’m pretty sure if I ended up winning the lottery, I’d have a hard time not spending a lot of the winnings on yarn, haha. I’m sure at least a few or more of you feel that way too, haha.Miss Knit Yarns | The Weaving LoomIf you’re looking for more hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns, here are some of my favorites:

And here are some more of my favorite weaving threads:

Is there a yarn you love to weave with? Let me know in the comments, I would love to discover more yarns.

Happy Weaving!

    Just went over to her Etsy shop and loving her colors. I see she sells the curls and I have seen them used in weavings but really didn’t know what they were called. Anyway, I favorited her shop and now I can look on others too for the curls. I have bought some pretty cool rovings and thick and thin yarn from shops on Etsy. It’s kind of becoming my go to place. You wouldn’t believe how many are in my favorites to purchase down the road. lol Thanks for sharing!

      Oh I know, the curly locks! I haven’t tried them out yet, but maybe one day. So much yarn and so little time 😉

    Love the colours in the post, but one person you MUST check out is siobhan at siobhancrafts (Instagram & etsy) Her yarns are absolutely amazing, the colours, the texture, everything! She’s so lovely and will do full weaving kits in your choice of colour, or pre made. Plenty in a pack to last more than one piece! You won’t be disappointed!
