As most of our readers know, Created by Elsie B is headquartered in Utah, and we have long, cold winters. (The state is famous for its great skiing!) Lately, however, we've been peeking our heads out from under the covers and seeing sunshiny skies and warm temperatures (this weekend is supposed to hit 60 degrees,) and it's making us dream of all things spring! While we expect several more cold snaps before we get an actual seasonal shift, the onset of March is always an exciting time with grass and tulips tentatively peeking out from snow-covered ground. Spring is in the air here, even if just for a moment, and we couldn't resist riffling through our bins to showcase some of our spring-worthy braids in all our favorite pastel hues. Whether you're already well into spring or still have a ways to go like we do, we're sure you'll find something in the mix to brighten your day!
We love that we are able to offer so many options for combed top fiber at Created by Elsie B! However, the wide variety means that we get questions frequently about what all the bases are and what the differences are between them. While that is a bit of a loaded question, we thought that a fun and easy way to do some comparisons would be to show the same colorways side-by-side on different fiber bases. Today's edition of this recurring series features Merino/Seacell, one of the newest fiber bases at Created by Elsie B. It's a beauty, and we think you'll love it as much as we do!
