There is no doubt that we love color. (It's kind of our thing here at Created by Elsie B!) LeAndra spends a lot of time pairing and planning for the beauties that we send out the door every day, not to mention the actual process of mixing and applying the vibrant colors of our Elsie B fibers. And, while there's little doubt that our variegated colorways steal the proverbial show, we like to think that our semi solids are the hidden gems of the spinning world. They are stunning in their own right, but tonals really shine paired with our more colorful options for perfect plying and blending. There is so much you can do with semi solids, and adding them to your fiber repertoire will really kick it up a notch, so to speak. Today we're highlighting just a few of these beauties. While we often develop tonals to match a specific paired colorway, we release them independently as well, and also have several (such as Linen shown here) that have several matching colorways. However you use them, the creative possibilities are truly endless!

Here at Created by Elsie B, we hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. We're keeping it a bit low key around here, if you haven't noticed, but we still have some exciting news to highlight. LeAndra has spent the last 12 months perfecting a new product that has been bouncing around her head for years. We are so excited to put the physical manifestation of this long-anticipated dream in your crafty hands and see it spring to life. Sharing our fiber love with you gives us so much joy, so we think it's quite fitting to release it around the most wonderful time of the year! This week, we'll unwrap all the ins and out of the Created by Elsie B Year of Fiber - consider it our gift to you for a cheerful and bright 2020! What better way to ring in a brand new decade than with a brand new Elsie B product?
While fiber and all the ins and outs of preparing, picking color palettes and dyeing make up the majority of what we do here at Created by Elsie B, LeAndra is also a spinner, knitter and fiber artist herself. This means that not only do you get the absolute best fibers when you shop with us, but we also have a variety of bits, bobs and complementary products that speak to fiber-loving souls like you. If you haven't searched our product catalog extensively, you may have missed our Elsie B Sheep Notions Bag, one of the cutest and most useful additions to the website. Today we're spotlighting these little darlings, where they came from and their plethora of uses!
At Created by Elsie B, one of our favorite things ever is spreading beauty and color in our customer's lives. While creating unique colorways regularly rocks our world, seeing what appeals to you and what you make with our hand-dyed combed top fiber is probably the most fulfilling part of what we do. And, we are certainly surprised in the best way as we browse the things that our customers share on Instagram and Facebook! Still, why should we have all the fun? We like to give surprises as well! If you consistently love the style and showmanship of Elsie B fibers and enjoy surprises, you should definitely check out our fiber club!
