I haven't brought home any more new yarn this week... so I decided to take this opportunity to showcase another blatant rabbit photo... I love my little fuzzy boy... and his fur *will* become yarn some day... so that still sort of counts as Yarn Candy?  doesn't it?  oh drat... maybe it doesn't... meh.

Yarn Candy Monday: Corgi Hill Farm Batts!

MataHari Batts 1

Purple-licious!  These lovely poofy, sparkly, smooth, rolled up batts are "Mata Hari" a blend of Drum Carded Merino, Silk and Firestar from Corgi Hill Farm....

I showed zero willpower. I began to spin immediately.

A friend over at All for Love of Yarn asked me to spin these batts up for her in exchange for some yummy hand dyed yarn!  One look at the photos she sent and I knew that I wanted to spin this... and the batts are even more beautiful in person.

I have 5.4 oz to play with... and am aiming for DK weight 3-ply

Yarn Candy Monday: Specialty Designer Blends from Belfast Mini Mills

exotic belfast 2

This little duo is an "Exotic Blend"... so is soft and bouncy and beautiful... but I'm not exactly sure what's in it!  The ladies at Belfast said that they keep every scrap of exotic fiber, and when there is enough, they do a special run of this blend.  There might be Angora, mohair, silk, quiviut, or anything in there! I doubt there's much angora, because there isn't much of that feather light halo, but only time will tell.

Either way... it still counts as Yarn Candy I think!?  I bought it with the intention of making myself some fingerless mitts and a cowl for my FREEZING cold office... Patterns still to be chosen and evaluated.

Happy Monday!
