My April Phat Fiber Box

I think that this was the best Phat Fiber Box EVER! But that may have had something to do with the theme. April's theme was "Green: Eco/The Color" and I was really glad to see that so many people went with the eco theme! I wish I had time to talk about all of the samples I received, but I do want to feature a few of them. If you have questions about any of the samples you see in the picture, just post a comment about it and I'll get you the info.

I got samples from two of my favorite ladies: a magnet from Banana Migraine and recycled fabric spun yarn from Dawning Dreams:

Look at this beautiful, soft, and fluffy angora from Desired Haven Farm:

I'm really excited to try this plantable paper from Winemakerssister. It's a sample that will last all season! And the shop has some of the cutest sheep stamps!

Plum Crazy Ranch donated fun samples of 3 different fibers, tussah silk, silk noil, and Optim. I'd never heard of Optim before so I looked it up: it's wool that has been treated to feel like silk- isn't that neat?

The next two samples were my absolute favorites and I spun them up immediately!

Milk fiber from Moonwood Farm:

And wool/ecospun (recycled soda bottles) from Wild Hare Fiber Studio:

They became this "Ahoy Matey!" 2-ply:
