Back to Phat Fiber

I'm so, so happy to contribute to the Phat Fiber Sampler again!  Phat Fiber is a spectacular sampler of all things fiber-yarn, spinning fiber, stitch markers, patterns, etc.  March's theme is Elements: Earth, Air, Wind, Fire, Aether.  I wanted to create a variety of samples instead of blending all the elements together, and came up with these blends:
From left to right: magma (wool and firestar), terra (wool, alpaca, and milk), abyss (wool, milk, tencel, mohair, angelina) and stratos (wool, bamboo, milk, soysilk, angora, angelina, tussah silk)

I dyed all the fiber then blended them on my drum carder and pulled the batts into roving.  They all turned out spectacularly and I can't wait to spin them up myself.  These fibers are now available in the fiber shop, or you can nab yourself a Phat Fiber box!
