More pictures of yarn than any rational person would want to see.
Sasha Blaze
My haul from the trip! Now if I only had time to knit the BJD sweaters I was imagining when I bought all this lovely stuff . . .

I adore yarn that hasn't been processed to death, and these two cakes smell as good as they feel. Black/brown and brown/bluish-gray undyed alpaca tweeds, for heavy masculine turtlenecks:

Mohairs and mohair blends, for colorblocked tunics and cardigans:

Classic wool in autumnal colors. Think stripes!

Two beautiful tweeds, brownish-charcoal and brick/black. I think there's a turtleneck apiece in these:

The three balls of yarn in the lower right corner of the big picture are self-patterning sock yarns, for hats, scarves, and biscuitbear's cute cardigan.

Of course, before I dive into this pile of new yarn and start wallowing, I *should* finish the sweaters I have on the needles right now (and in some cases, have had on the needles for months . . .)

I love the colours! I love natural fiber yarns, and the mohair is goegeous.. As are the wools, alpaca, and other tweeds.

There's a lady here that makes yarns out of all sorts of things....kind of a mish mash of human hair, dog hair, goat hair, and wool. She also recycles silk fabrics into yarns. Great to look at, but not too sure about buying it.

Ooooooh, I just realized I never replied to this comment! What I meant to say was a combination of squeeee and what a GORGEOUS sweater and hey, what IS that yarn?.
