A new year and some new supplies for me! I got heartily tired of the $1 hoops available at Joann’s so I paid a visit to Hedgehog Handworks where I found these gorgeous Hardwicke Manor hoops.
|Birch wood hoops and colorful Floche!|
They’re gorgeous and like nothing I’ve ever been able to find in the craft shops around here. You do get what you pay for. As you can see in the pic I also purchased some DMC Floche a Broder in 30 yard twists in my favorite shades for spring.
I also bought a few colors of lambs wool to try mixing my fibers.

In looking at the wool it seems to be a lot like lace weight wool that I purchased from Knitpicks. I think I might try using both and comparing the thickness.
Hedgehog Handworks is a neat online shop. My items were shipped quickly and packaged well. I recommend them to anyone looking for quality hoops and hard-to-find needlework supplies.
Do you have a favorite supplier? I would love to hear about them!
