Morning Moon

New Yarn Store Review – Gypsy Wools in Boulder

When you walk in the door to this place, all you want to do is touch everything – softest rovings, great fibers- I’d love to get some of the bamboo/silk blend to spin, but first I have to fix my spinning wheel.  Anyway, here’s the review with some pics.
