April 2011 Phat Fiber Box Has Arrived!

The theme for this month’s Phat Fiber box was Butterflies and Flutterbys and, as expected, the fibers are amazing and the colors are beautiful.  I love everything in it but, once again, there are a few things that stand out.  Here are my favorites this month:

Stitch Markers:

Shops from L to R:  Gloria Patre, the next two butterflies from Turtle Dreams Soaps, Lampyridae, Wildcard Fiber Arts, and TwirlyCurlyBird.

Death’s Head Moth by Lampridae.  Not only is the fiber pretty but look at the cute bee stitch marker she attached!  Fiber is silk, bamboo, angelina, BFL, cashmere, alpaca,carbonized bamboo and merino.

Clouded Sulphur by Caliope’s Fibre .  1/4 oz of merino, soybean, and bamboo.  Soybean???  I’ve never seen fiber made with this material before, but I sure do love the feel of it… and it’s pretty to boot.

Flutterby Swing by Beesybee Fibers.  This is 100% Peruvian Alpaca!!  It is some of the softest fiber I’ve ever felt.

The only things I know about this next sample is that it’s beautiful, soft and from Wonderland Fiber.  If anyone has any idea of what the fiber is, please let me know.

I also bought some full sized fibers and will try to post those tomorrow.

Pretty Fiber

I happened to be browsing around on Etsy one day and came across some of the most gorgeous fiber at the Fiber Fancy shop.  It was calling to me; luring me in with its beauty and softness.  I HAD to have it.  But then I encountered having to decide between two lovely colors.  I was stuck… lost in a sea of despair.  I had no other choice!  I knew there was no way I could go on with only one, so I bought both.  I am not disappointed!
