There is a new batch of kettle-dyed merino at The Loop, and also at Gaspereau Valley Fibres. The Loop also got some handspun yarn and some kettle-dyed commercial yarns, so if you're looking for something bright and cheery, or luxurious, you know where to go.
I guess Tulasi Zimmer of The Joy of Handspinning dropped in to The Loop today while visiting town, and picked up some of my merino top! It's so exciting! I'm looking forward to more dyeing in the future.
If anyone has leads on a sparkly sock yarn base, let me know. I like glitter a lot, and apparently so do Halifax sock knitters!
