Purchased Gems of Paradise fiber and I am really looking forward to spinning it. It's so soft and beautiful. Paradise Fibers is an outstanding business.
I purchased the Opal, and it was lovely to spin. It took me a bit to decide how to handle it, but narrow strips was the best for me. I made a heavy lace-weight 2-ply, and knitted a beaded shawl. It blocked out amazingly well, and is both soft to wear, and strong enough to hold the weight of all the beads. I’m about to buy more, in Topaz, for another beaded shawl.
I’m going back for seconds! I was in love with the color (Opal) when it arrived, but the fiber was so drifty I wasn’t sure how to handle it. Once I settled on spinning narrow strips, it was an absolute dream to spin. I made a heavy lace+weight 2-ply of nearly 700 yards, and knit a beaded lace shawl. It has shine, softness, and drape. The color is uniform from a distance, but has depth and interest up close. It was lovely to knit with, and blocked beautifully.
Looks and feels amazing! Spins up well too!
Currently making a rainbow skein with topaz, amythest, tanzanite, peridot, and ruby. Nice blend to work with, great starter fiber.
