Stash Inventory

Well all but a few skeins (maybe a dozen or so) are accounted for. I bought plastic containers (I need one more to get rid of the cardboard box) and am using 2 comforter bags. I won't list it all, but I'll post pictures

Fleeces/Roving
On the bottom of this picture are two boxes of washed fleece, then atop that is the 2 pounds of Corriedale I wrote about recently. Above that is a bag of Romney. I have a large box upstairs of flicked Targhee and half a large box to clean yet.


The photo to the right has two unwashed fleeces on the bottom, both Rambos. I have another half box this size near the washing machine in the process (it's been stalled the past week and a half though) The top clear plastic box is filled with roving from Peace Fleece. I posted about it way back here. I've spun a bit of the Chickie Masla and used some of the Firebird Orange for needle felting. There are also some Peace Fleece kits in that box that I didn't account for as well as a thrum mitten kit. The cardboard box has roving from Spunky Eclectic and some samples of roving. And the little plastic bag has 8 oz of alpaca that I was gifted from a friend of DD's.

Next up is the wool.
The stack on the left:The bottom box is undyed wool... Vermont aran... it's old and some undyed 100purewool in both single ply and triple ply worsted weight and some Cascade. The box above that also contains undyed wool. Some that's earmarked to finish my poncho, KnitPicks Wool of the Andes (as well as some 250g of Asparagus WOA), Briggs and Little and my handspun.. mostly Romney from Fuzzy! The box atop this one contains my Peace Fleece stash... mostly all worsted weight. And at the top two queen/king comforter bags, one with recycled wool and the other with kind of orphan skeins, or dual sibling skeins.

The stack on the right: Bottom box contains Patons... almost all Classic Merino although there are a few skeins of Superwash English Garden and 2 skeins of Soy Wool Stripes. Above that is a box containing all my dyed 100PureWool and the few skeins of Manos del Uruguay that I own. The cardboard box contains lots of different skeins (Bartlett, Christopher Farms, etc) and the plastic bag abouve that has Lion Wool, Caron Felt it, Anny Blatt, some Cashmere Luxury yarn from A.C. Moore (only about 15% cashmere, blended with merino and microfiber... but still) 1100 grams of lace weigh mohair and a few skeins of sock yarn.

And last but not least, my cottons:
On the left the very bottom is Plymouth Fantasy Royale and Tahki Cotton Colori. The middle box has more Fantasy Royale and Bernat Casino. The top box has cones of Peaches and Cream, Sugar and Cream and 2pound cone of cotton chenille as well as King Tut and Tahki Cotton Classic, Knitpicks Crayon and Shine and some assorted other cottons. And the stack on the right is my kitchen cottons. The bottom box is the solid colors (Lily's Sugar and Cream, Elmore Pisgah Peaches and Cream and Lion Brand Cotton) and the top box is the varigated selection.

So there you have it. My name is Carole and I'm a fiberholic!


I have 2 cloths that are finished... just need to take pictures of them! I'll save that for another day though!

happy crafting

Hi Carole,
My name is Aunt Kathy AK for short. I camoe to see your blog often and can I just say WOW about all that yarn. I have alot too but it is not nearly as much as yours nor is it stored as well. My husband thinks I need a storage shed for my craft things, LOL

Anyway I am here today to say I was tagged and I needed to choose 6 other blogs to tag myself and I decided on yours. If anything it will generate some new people to see your beautiful things.

Should you decide to play along the instructions are on my blog.

By the way I am also a beginning designer, I have made 6 dishcloth picture patterns so far. Have you made any yet? I'd love to see them.

Hope you are having a great day and find no knots in your yarn, LOL

Love your storage system. I need to evaluate my stash and store it neatly like yours. I can't remember what I have. BTW, I love your blog!

I have got to show this to my husband. He is always griping about my stash and then when we were in England we ended up getting more. Enough to make 5 sweaters and some other yarn that isn't available here. Wow, what to do with it all.
