Just Arrived!

So many gorgeous goodies at Precious Purl!
The latest to arrive came in this gorgeous bundle, wrapped and stitched in Calico from India!

Inside was this beautiful selection of Vintage silk Sari pieces.Many are large offcuts about a metre square, beautiful patterns and plains, some bright and others in muted tones. These have been walking out of the shop as I have them priced at 80c per gram loose or packaged in 100g bags -you get so much in these as the silk is so light. Yum! Great in felting, quilting, art journals etc, etc. 
*#?* the pic is fuzzy, I need a few lessons on this camera!
The gorgous green piece, left front, has already gone! 

My next post is my 100th!! So I will include a 100g bag of these luscious silk pieces in my giveaway as part of my celebrations!
Pop back soon!

Felting Play Day!

Had a lovely day yesterday playing with Louise from Canada!
Louise's son David lives here in Melbourne and knowing his Mum's love of fibre and all things crafty and wanting to purchase some fibrey goodness for her, found Precious Purl via the web.
What a wonderful son!
 Louise loved the Aussie hand dyed wool top and coming to visit David in January, decided she had to visit  this home of "fibrey goodness!"

Well, the upshot of all this was a play day with Muslin or Cotton Gauze Felting! Thanks Louise for a fun Felting session and it was great to see you so pleased with the results and lots more lovely Aussie wool winging its way to Canada!
 We stock a range of  Treetops Colour Harmonies, First Edition Fibres, Waratah Fibres and Lara Downs own Hand Dyed range of Wool Top. See the website for many of these or visit Precious Purl.
