January Update : Julius Caesar – the fibre

February 01, 2014 1 min read

I had full intentions of writing this post yesterday before the update went live but never got round to it having spent the day like a headless chicken and praying to the yarn gods that my first update on the new shop platform would go seamlessly. Fortunately it did so here is a late compilation of the spinning fibre that co-ordinates with the yarn.  I thought it was important that spinners and felters weren’t left out of The Twelve Caesars Collection.

1. Very well then, you win! (Oatmeal BFL)

2. To his intense annoyance (Southdown)

3. At an age when Alexander had already conquered the known world (BFL and Firestar)

4. The most flagrant bribery (mixed BFL, tussah silk and rainbow firestar)

5. Three Wives and Many Lovers (mixed BFL, tussah silk and rainbow firestar)

6. To govern alone and do very much as he pleased (oatmeal BFL)

9. Veni, vidi, vici (Southdown)

10. A House on Sacred Way(mixed hand dyed fibre batts)

11. Romans, lock up your wives! (oatmeal BFL)

12. I am Caesar, not king (black shetland and tussah silk)
