Fiber Cupcakes

I found another new scrumptious fiber vice... cupcakes. The Cupcake Fiber Company preps batts in one-ounce cupcakes, presented in half-dozen bakery boxes.

They come in delicious flavors like Chocolate and Caramel, although I selected a slightly less edible flavor called, "Remembering Spring." Isn't it gorgeous? It is superwash BFL and nylon, for socks.

The six-cupcake sets are perfect for sock spinning, beginning with a single from each cupcake, and then three-plying together, ending up with two 3-ply skeins of the same weight. What a clever idea!

Each individual batt looks good enough to eat... even in green. The shades of blue should make the yarn spin up looking a bit like iridescent beads. :)
