For the past few months, I have been a subscriber to the Spunky Eclectic Fiber-of-the-Month Club. A service that provides me with hand dyed fiber every month!
Each month a different fiber type/breed is chosen and then dyed by Spunky owner, Amy King, in a color way inspired by a photo. I just love getting a mystery fiber shipped every month!

This fiber-of-the-month club allows me to try breeds that I wouldn’t normally buy or be able to purchase. Also, I like being challenged by the colorways I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards. I’ve found, though, that once I try them I like them!
I have at least seven braids of fiber that I have been saving for Spinzilla, with two more to come between now and Spinzilla.

There is still a little time between now and Spinzilla, so joining a fiber-of-the-month club could provide you with some great spinning fiber ahead of time! Spunky Eclectic also has fiber for sale that isn’t part of the club, so you can get your fix in a short amount of time. With Spinzilla less than two months away, its time to stock up! As always, check out your local yarn store for spinning fibers and try to support indie dyers when you can!
Time to spin!
