Getting ready for The Tour de Fleece...

This year I'm a participant in The Tour de Fleece, my first year so I'm a rookie at this I decided to buy some prepared fibers as I didn't received any Pickwick fleece yet.
I have pick the June Spinzilla Fibre Packs from Louet at the  Boutique Fibre Detours  it's a very nice assortment of fibers.


Karaoke... wool/soysilk




and of course some silk
plus 4 packs of 100g of  colourful merino this should keep me spinning this July.
I'm cleaning the wheel wiping all oil residues and getting it all clean and ready for more oil.


  1. You have a beautiful variety there, I'm sure your wheel will be busy! I haven't tried tencel yet but I've heard good things about it and would love to try it sometime :)

    1. I haven't spin any wool/soysilk or Llama and it will be a first for the tencel too, it's a good thing to take the challenge on the event as I know myself I could put it on the back burner and never give it go, so this is the perfect time to try it.

  2. Beautiful fibers! Have spent some time scrolling back through your blog. Lovely work. So sorry to hear about your mother. I'm glad your brother is doing better. Enjoy the tour!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my brother is doing great he just got some test results and he doesn't have anymore colesterol and he is off one med. I'm glad to be on your team and 20 :D
