Roc Day Sale!

Roc Day Sale!
What is Roc Day?

From Wikipedia
Distaff Day, also called Roc Day, is 7 January, the day after the feast of the Epiphany. It is also known as Saint Distaff's Day, since it was not really a holiday at all. In many European cultural traditions, women resumed their household work after the twelve days of Christmas. The distaff, or rock, used in spinning was the medieval symbol of women's work. Often the men and women would play pranks on each other during this day, as was written by Robert Herrick in his poem "Saint Distaffs day, or the Morrow After Twelfth Day" which appears in his Hesperides

Our January fiber of the month is a natural colored fiber blend of Romney, Beast, SW merino mill ends, Cashmere and Nylon. This blend may felt, but it may not. I think this blend would be great fun to dye after spinning for a nice variegated or heathered yarn.

Dying for more sparkle in you fibers, just send me a convo and I will add white firestar to the blend so if you choose to dye the fiber everything will dye with wool dyes. The firestar will be a darker and shiny flash of color throughout your handspun yarn.

Have a Great Roc Day!
