This is the November ’13 Fiber Club color way. Named “Uncle Kurt” because of its manly colors. I can clearly envision a subtle, yet quite lively, scarf (or even a sweater) created out of this fiber, the perfect handmade gift for a dear uncle, grandfather, son or husband.
The GarnGalleriet Fiber Club is well established by now and has loyal members/subscribers. They receive a new color way each month and I find great pleasure in creating (hopefully) pleasing club-packages.
This month I have a special offer for new Clubbies. A 20% discount!!
This is how you get your 20% off:
If you want to order Fiber Club Classic: use the code CLASSICNOVEMBER.

The fiber is ready. Packed and ready for sending off tomorrow. It’s still a little too early to show the June-colorway on the fibers, but I’ll show you my inspiration for this months colors:
A wonderful painting by a friend of mine, Karen Margrethe Jelonek. She is a very talented artist, and I was so fortunate to get this beauty in a trade for a piece of furniture.. Lucky me!
The colors of this flower painting are deep and rich. Reds, dark and strong and warm, deep dark blues and greens and browns. I just loved the painting the moment I saw it, and also knew right away that these hues just had to become a fiber-colorway..
I’ll show the actual June-fibers in a few days!
I just want to say that there are a few available slots in the Fiber Club , starting from June. So if you are very quick you can still join the fun for this month and the next two. See my Etsy-shop for details!
Other than dyeing fbers (and yesterday some yarn as well) I am been weaving these days. I’ve warped the loom with a merino/silk warp in three colors and threaded the shafts for a twill structure. It’s going to end up with two shawls. The first one is allready woven and still sits on the loom. Now I’m weaving the second one:
Using handdyed, handspun weft for this one. Alpaca and silk singles that I’m spinning (as I go along) on one of my favorite spindles, a Bosworth midi. It’s yummy stuff!
