Our latest shop update has "Betty's Bees" as the roving featured today.
I love this one. It will make such a beautifully soft yarn. YUM!
Gnome hooks are on their way! Keep checking the shop for more.

Beauty School Drop Out (for Frenchie's hair in the movie Grease)
Turquoise Days after the Echo and the Bunnymen song.
I had some fun doing some hand painting and also kettle dying and came up with a few rovings for the shop. Here's the first one that I listed today.
Named "Ocean Rain" after another Echo and the Bunnymen song (I've had them stuck in my head for a little while. Can you tell?)
So come by the shop and check us out at Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs.
And don't forget to check out our big grand opening on Oct. 31st!

Rainy and Wooly are going to be dyeing this weekend so please come back soon to see the lastest from the dyepots. They have also been busy making some body soap in delicious beverage inspired scents like "Champagne Cocktail" and mocha-like "Les Deux Magots."

Just a had to post a pic of the orifice hook Rainy made for the store. Isn't it a beauty? All the art is done freehand. It just slays me! The design is called Henna Flowers. Every spinner needs a good orifice hook.
We have also posted another lot of rolags. It's over 6 ounces of our luscious Ram Brulee and a very gorgeous red hue I call Robert Red. It's like kissing Robert Smith!
Finally, we have some more soap in offer. We are still working on the label. Let us know what you think of our recent version. This is our Wool Wash soap, supercreamed with lanolin for washing your skeins and knitted items. It makes a great bath soap, too. This batch is scented with sweet orange and lavender. We love how sweetly it smells and lathers.

And in this lovely yarn pictured below, chocolate and malty browns are enlivened by a gorgeous sky blue. This one is called DOMINANT RECESSIVE, to match your beautiful eyes, whatever their color.
Finally, we put three more colorways of our buttery Rambouillet top. We love this top. Spinning it is like eating creme brulee. In fact, we are calling it Ram Brulee! We promise your eyes will roll back, your toes will curl and you will let out a little moan when you spin this sinfully soft stuff. Respectively, they are called "The Purple shall Govern," Blue Monday, and Big Time Sensuality.
Please let us know what you think.
Currently, we only have a small sampling of our wares listed on our Etsy site. Keep on eye out for more of our hand carded rolags (none of that mini batt business!), hand combed top and additional soap for fiber AND body which we will be posting very soon! We will also be posting hand dyed yarn in other weights. New items will be listed every few days so checking back often is a good idea.
That's all for now!
