It takes approximately 1 hour to make up 100g of fibre, some preparations take slightly longer than others. This is why at present I have a dispatch time of approximately 3-4 weeks, depending upon numbers of orders.

UK shipping will be sent via Royal Mail (either first class or tracked 48) and all international orders will be sent using a tracked method. Once your item is shipped I will send you an email with your tracking information.

If you have any questions, or would like changes to a blend, or a custom order, please contact me at carol@fellviewfibres.co.uk

I was given these inspiration photographs as part of a chat in the Fellview Fibres group on Ravelry. I LOVE the colours of these blueberries on the vine, and so decided to convert them into fluff. The gradient is 1/3 bamboo and 2/3 21 micron merino. I decided to blend bamboo into the mix for two reasons, first the photographs seem to show a pale/white coating to the surface of the unripe berries, and secondly because I enjoyed spinning the Bamboo Forest blend so much - I wanted another bamboo blend to spin.

You can purchase the gradient in one of two forms.

1. Gradient Batt set. Here you recieve 10 mini batts, which together make up 150g of fibres

2. Gradient Rolag set. Here you recieve 10 rolags, which together make up 75g of fibres.

I decided to give two options for this larger gradient, because as a spinner who enjoys spinning fine (read as laceweight and thinner) finding a project that would use up the whole of the gradient yarn would be difficult - However, 75g would make a lovely laceweight shawl.

The bamboo in this blend will give the resulting yarn a lovely shimmer and drape.

The merino in the blend will felt. If you do not wish it to, hand wash in cool water.
