Fleece update


Slowly but surely I’m getting all my raw fleeces washed and dyed in preparation for Tour de Fleece. As much as I’d like to card & spin it all myself, that seems awfully selfish so I put several 4 ounce batches up for sale in the shop. More to come as time and drying-rack-space allows.



It’s that time again! The Tour de Fleece is upon us, and I am once again hosting a team. Last year’s Team Tour de Batt was all about carding, and this year I have decided to open it up to all types of fiber prep – scouring, dyeing, combing, drum carding, picking, felting, hackling, and whatever else might float your boat.

Team Et Cetera! You’re welcome to join us even if you’re spinning for other teams, and we are very relaxed with the rules, so don’t worry if you can’t post every day. This is just a place to show off all your yummy fiber creations.

It will be my goal to card a batt every day of the tour, in addition to some occasional spinning on the challenge days. My store is sorely in need of batt replenishment, so this year’s event can’t come soon enough.



Some of you may have gotten a glimpse of this yarn at DFW Fiber Fest, but in case you didn’t, I’d like you to meet the newest yarn in the Gritty Knits line: Smug.


Smug is a soft, smooth blend of silk & merino wool. This yarn is a dream to knit with, perfect for projects calling for dk or light worsted weight. Want to try some? Everyone who makes a purchase from Gritty Knits in the month of June will be entered to win a ball of Smug in the color of their choice!
