Welcome to the blog of Fibrefanatic Designs. For those of you who have a love of texture and colour in relation to fibre, we have something in common. This blog is a journal of my passion for Art yarns and also the bits of my world that add to the mix. Thanks for popping by.

After dyeing lots of fibre a while back and spinning the most obvious colour combinations from them, I was just about to pack them away. I often do that, and then later something will come along, some form of inspiration, that will make me hunt for a colour or a fibre to go with a completely different colour combination than was initially intended. However, as I was packing them away, I came across a bangle that had not made it to my dressing table and I took a moment to study the colour combination. It seems that my untidyness was truly inspirational. I wish I could say that this was the reason for all untidyness, but in this case I was happy to use that excuse, and started to grab the fibres that would match the bangle.
Sometimes there are rewards for untidiness!
Having got the fibre together I decided to make a fibre sandwich as I didn't want to blend the colours too much and I wanted to create a lot of texture in the yarn
Finally it was time to roll it all up and start spinning!
