Tropical Delivery – March 2019 Tiger Club

March is a season of sunny skies and storm clouds. It seemed fitting to choose this picture from collection of ‘shelter pictures’, with the cool blue door and concrete, and the bright wall and citrus. A Tropical Delivery!

Tropical Delivery SW Corriedale Combed Top of the Month - March Tiger Club

The wool is Superwash Corriedale, a great all purpose medium fine wool. I chose to dye it in a blended gradient so that you had the most options in spinning it. Please take it apart and make it do what you want. I love the way the fiber (and superwash treatment) made a natural resist and lead to more colors than I started with.

Tropical Delivery Safari Sock Yarn of the Month - March Tiger Club

The yarn is also Superwash Corriedale wool, blended with nylon to make Safari Sock yarn. The striping pattern plays the gold and orange against the blue and grey, enlivened by a springy lime green. The sample here is a 64 stitch tube.

Would you like to enjoy a surprise yarn and/or fiber every month? There are a few spots open in Tiger Club, we’d love to have you join us!
