Waterloo Wools now open!

After months of talking about it, I finally got around to opening my etsy shop today! For right now I am just selling handspun yarns. I hope to add hand-dyed fiber, but given the limitations of the condo I think I'll wait until I'm in a space more conducive to the mess of dyeing.

I've just listed a few items right now, but within minutes of listing I had sold the first 2 yarns! I can't quite believe it...WHY did I wait this long?? Now I need to get spinning so I can restock the shop.

I've also realized I need to keep better notes when I spin. It took a long time to get some of these items listed because I hadn't written down all the details when I first spun the yarns. Hopefully the process will be faster if I list items as I spin them from now on.

I finished 2 other yarns recently that aren't in the shop:
buckland2
Hello Yarn November club fiber in Buckland, Finn wool, n-plied, worsted weight, 150 yards. I like this a lot, but I also think it's sellable, so I might list it.

merino bamboo
Spunky Eclectic Merino/Bamboo in Sangria. 2-ply, fingering weight, about 430 yards. I'm also debating about using this myself or listing it for sale. We shall see!
