Welcome to a new year of fiber, spinning and fun! We've always envisioned our blog being not only a place to let you know what is currently going on here at Created by Elsie B, but an educational platform as well, giving our readers tips, tricks and techniques to get the most out of your fiber. We periodically get technical questions, either on our Facebook page, in a blog comment, on Instagram or even via private message. While we are happy to send over whatever resources we have at hand, we want to have that information more readily available. Today we're going to dive into finishing, so you can create stable and stunning yarns from your spins that both wear well and give you the wow factor! Finishing isn't a particularly difficult process, but it is a quite important one.
Not to be too sentimental, but we have a special place in our heart for each and every braid of hand-dyed combed top that we put our creative touch on. There are definitely some that we love maybe a little more than others. (Check out LeAndra's Favorites to see the picks that really make our hearts sing!) Still, they are all unique in their own way. What you may not realize, however, is that we offer two types of colorways in our shop - repeatable and OOAK. What that means is that there are certain colorways that are truly limited editions. If you fall in love with a one of a kind colorway, be sure to stock up, because once it's gone, it's gone for good!
