Fish Belly Fiber Works

| Monday, July 1, 2013
I am full green with excitement for this weeks review!!  Fish Belly Fiber Works
is an amazing Etsy shop that I am proud to review.  Holly is the dyer for this fantastic yarn line, she currently lives in Amherst and Nashua, New Hampshire.  Just to let you all know ahead of time, she besides what she offers in her shop, she also does CUSTOM ORDERS!!!!!  Really does it get better than that?!  Let me show you all little of the goodness that I am talking about.


Light Fingering / 3 ply
480 yards/ 113 grams
100% Merino
2-ply with a tight twist

I am a color nut, I love seeing custom colors that I have never seen before.  I think that is part of what makes me a "Yarn Collector" or so I keep telling myself every time I add to my stash. I love how Holly has such deep saturation and then has the ability in the same skein to lighten things up a bit all while bringing her color idea into play.
This is Maleficent

This is Lagoon

I can not say enough about the rich color tones that you can see so well above.  I would use this yarn for anything!!  I am sure you all could use a skein or 3 in you stash as well.  Great summer colors and again, if you can imagine up a color way, Holly is happy to help you put your ideas into fiber art.
Thank you again to Holly for such a fantastic review of her yarn!!
Make sure that you all hop on over to her shop and take a look today!

I'm pretty sure it wants to be a shawl.

With those round plump plies it could only be a pair of socks! Maybe something with slipped stitches to show off the colors.

A pair of skyp socks to work with the variegated colours

Beautiful and bright. Joji Locatelli has a great cowl pattern out. It would be perfect. ;-)

I think I might make the Lune Shawl out of it...definitely a shawl or neck type of accessory!

Maleficent is my favorite Disney villain. Doesn't everyone need a skein of yarn called Maleficent? Perfect colors!

I want to make a Vanilla Vest for my granddaughter's pattern by Elena Nodel.

Socks or a cowl

{ Michelle } at: July 3, 2013 at 4:11 PM said...

I can see this as a Hitchhiker by Martina Behm or a sockhead hat by Kelly McClure. :)

I'd make a Trillian shawl I think. It's beautiful.

{ twinsetjan } at: July 5, 2013 at 4:51 AM said...

This would make awesome socks...something like Lucy Neatby's Fishtail Socks!

{ Beth H } at: August 17, 2013 at 10:32 AM said...

Definitely a shawl..perhaps Amagansett Girl or Changes by MADuNaier or Old Man of Storr Shawl..ooh or Belle Époque Shawl! LOL Hard to decide ;)
