So here’s the thing… and you will have seen this coming if you follow my podcast, or visit me at shows…
I have been and am becoming more allergic to handling fibre (more the processing of it than anything). Those light, floating fibres and sheepy smells affect my breathing and eczema in a bigger way now… and so whilst I have known it for a while, that day has finally come when I need to start making changes to the stock I hold and the products I sell.
From now on the main focus of Sara’s Texture Crafts will be yarn.
I will be selling down and not replacing the following fibre based items;
- Natural Wool Tops
- Silk & Plant Fibres
- Fibre Kits
- Batts & Rolags
- and therefore the majority of my Pick and Mix
I will keep up with a limited supply of Hand Dyed Tops and Exclusive Blends for the time being…. but I will no-longer be dyeing to order… what you see available will be all there is until a future update. This will help me consolidate all fibre handling to a blocked time period, so I can take the necessary precautions.
It will mean that next year I will attend less shows, as I usually do a lot of fibre related shows. I may replace them with Yarn shows in the future. It will also mean I will not be teaching fibre related classes, other than those already booked.
It breaks my heart to have to make this decision, but it is one I cannot avoid.
So if there is any fibre you like to buy, or can’t do without… please buy up as much as you need now.
End October 2016 Update – Since the release of this post I have had to take the decision to stop ALL fibre going forward. The remaining fibre i have left is now available in my SALE area at http://www.sarastexturecrafts.com/sale-92-c.asp
