I received my order and it is fabulous. When I see some of the workmanship of other fiber tools and then compare them to yours, well, there is NO comparison. Thank you for the time and attention to detail put into these works of art.
May I ask: I usually work with my alpaca as it comes off the animal. In other words I skirt it but I do not wash it until processed into yarn. I read to never comb dirty fleece and I certainly do not want to harm these tools so.....should I wash the alpaca first? I always wash wool because of the lanolin, just not my alpaca.
My combs arrived and I am absolutely pleased with the quality. It was well worth the wait. ++ Chocolate was delish. I’m saving for more toys!
Have a great day,
I just wanted to let you know that I got my shipment yesterday. I couldn't be more pleased! It was all beautiful and I can't wait to start spinning it!
I just got my SAL fiber kit today. The colors in #1 are just plain gorgeous Beth the pictures didn’t do it justice. Right now I am just rubbing my cheeks with the softness of it all. Now it is what to do with all this wonderful fiber.
Yippee! I just got home from work 2 hours late BTW, and opened my package! So beautiful! Thank you Beth!
Beth, it’s gorgeous! Can’t wait to play!
My kits came today!!!!! I had a meeting/luncheon out of town this morning and I arrived home to find a package waiting for me. GORGEOUS!!!! Can’t wait to start playing with them.
Just to let you know that the comb and hackle set has arrived on last Friday. They are so beautifully crafted and I love it so much. Thanks again.
SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!! It’s here!!!!!! :D
I love, love, love my new comb/hackle set! And the covers, how frekin cute! Tell Eric that he really outdid himself with this set, it’s gorgeous. And of course you did a fabulous job of polishing the tines. he he. I love those sheepie covers, so glad I was able to snag those before anyone else saw them!
Squeee! I got my Inspired rolags today!!
Beth you really nailed it with this colorway(Crazy Like A Fox)!! It is jaw droppingly GORGEOUS!!
I love the orchid rolags and all my lavender add-ins that came yesterday.
I was so pleased to get the art hackle in the post today. It is a work of art. Please let your hubby know how impressed I am with his craftsmanship.
I've been practicing and see there is a bit of a learning curve. But I'm starting to get the hang of it and am having a blast.
Thank you so much for your wonderful work and outstanding service!
I got my Harbinger of Spring kit yesterday - and it’s LOVELY! I can’t wait to card it up into some fun batts.
The hackle is absolutely beautiful. The workmanship is the best I have seen. Impressive attention to all the small details; no corners were cut in the assembly. If I ever get brave enough to try the combs, the will definitely come from your shop.
The hackle works just like your video. Now I just need to learn to diz. It was a sad first attempt.
Hi again! My combs just showed up in today's mail :D. They look perfect! I can't wait to get combing.
Got my ‘I See Fire’ today in the mail. G.E.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!! The pics don’t do it justice. Oh, and thanks for the candy. Bit O Honey…one of my favs and the next best thing to chocolate, if there is such a thing. :-)
Your craftsmanship is OUTSTANDING!!! My new comb set (purple heart and cherry) came in time for my 65th Birthday (was that neat or what??!!), I had waited years before I bought a set, so very glad I waited - now I feel I have the BEST!!. The Art Blending Hackle is also a WORK OF ART - love the woods used (tiger wood and purple heart). Now I can't wait until the next quota opens so I can order a set of Hand Cards. Also have to comment, items were SO WELL PACKED !! And the quality of the tines -- look long and sharp, but are very safe. SO PLEASED with my order and your SUPER SERVICE !! Thanks again,
Sharon from BC, Canada
PS. can't I please, pretty please sneak a quick order in there between the others!!?????!!!!
Got my extra add-ins today. Awesomeness!
I hate to confess, but I haven't been able to use my hackles and combs because the clamps don't fit any of my tables. I have kept intending to call or write, but haven't gotten around to it. My work tables are the newer white portable ones from Costco and they are too thick for the clamps. What can I do, other than buying more tables?
Janet I have tried to message you twice and your email address is not working........I keep getting the message sent back as not being deliverable. Please use the Contact Us form on the website to contact me. Thanks!
I just got my midnight heathered rolags!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥! They’re so soft & gorgeous! I want to spin them N.O.W., but I’m going to add them to the pile for TdF. 3 more days!
I got my order the other day too & forgot to tell you… it’s all gorgeous!!! I’ll be glad when everything here calms down a little so I can play with my fibers again.
I received my order yesterday. It arrived timely and in excellent condition. I can't wait to start using the blending hackle.
I plan to watch some of your videos today.
I just received the most gorgeous batt in the mail-Charming the Beast-which I had the great luck to win in your monthly drawing. Wow, I mean, "WOW"! Sooo soft, sooo glittery, sooo my favorite colors..... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I had the marvelously good fortune to be the recipient of your monthly reward. WOW....Charming the Beast batt is amazing-soft, shiney,my absolute favorite colors...I just cannot say enough to express just how much I love it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
My “one for the guys” roving arrived Saturday and it’s awesome. This may be one of my all time favorites.
I love my new bag!
My combs came yesterday, and I am just THRILLED with them – they are SO beautiful !!! Also, Thank You for all the extra goodies. My husband and I enjoyed the honey toffee – do you make them? And I really appreciate the knitting needle guage/diz, it is really sweet.
So impressed with your husband’s woodworking, they combs are strong and sturdy as well as being beautiful, and you have packed them SO well, I try to store them in the same way, you have really perfected that elastic twist!!
Have a Super Day – I am hurrying off to try my new combs – have all my dark grey mohair, and dark grey wool ready to put together towards spinning and weaving my ‘lord of the rings’ hooded cloak!
I just received my 3 ounces of Just Peachy and my 4.2 ounces of Sugar Plum! My, oh my , they are wonderful! I should have waited to pick my next fiber to spin! While I finish with my red sparkly batt, I can figure out which one of these gems I want to do!
FINALLY, spun the bfl Cool Beans fiber! Your prep and coloring are absolute fantastic.
I just received an order of firestar that I ordered on Sunday 9/13. Super happy!! I can't wait to use it !!! Also thanks for bit o' honey, it's one of my favorites.
I got my 2 pitch comb and hackle set Saturday, and was super excited! I used them on Sunday, and am in love! They are so well made. Heavy, but not fatiguing. I love them so much.
I absolutely LOVED my hand spun sky gradient yarn. So light but thick enough to keep me warm. I just wish there were more yarn we cud choose from here. Wud totally buy it. It was worth every dollar oli spent:)
Good Afternoon, Just received my blending hackle in the mail. It is marvelous....beautiful, functional, absolutely everything I've been looking for. Thank you so much,
Please pass on my appreciation to your husband for his incredible work. I still have to keep taking the hackle out and just look at it for a bit, then put it away. I don’t want to use it since I know I will add a few scratches!
My goodness that Red Cedar is beautiful! I have all kinds of things dreamed up in my head to put on it though! I’ll have to order some fun fluff from you to make some incredible art yarns!
Got home from work this evening to my package from Blue Mtn Handcrafts! My comb & hackle set arrived and it is sooo beautiful! My husband Bill was very impressed with the quality of workmanship in these tools. Love the cute hackle & comb "covers" I purchased to protect the tines and "wood balm" to protect the lovely wood grain. Can't wait to try them out this week on some Jacob fleece that I've cleaned. Thank you Beth and Eric for creating such outstanding products, videos & newsletters!
My wood balm and add-ins arrived. Perfect as always. :)
thanks so very much–i just got my package today(!!), and now i know what a really professional rolag looks like ;*)! they are beautiful, and beautifully soft, and basically look just like the picture on your website (colors true, etc., and i truly looove the fawn alpaca). in short, you and BMH are a class act, with all aspects of my order meeting or exceeding all expectations (this from someone who has become very leery of ordering on line...). can't wait to put them on the wheel!
I received my squishies today! Thank you! They are lovely!
I adore the Autumn Magic and White Magic!! They are gorgeous!
And the Dancing down the Moon is lovely!
Oh wow! Eric has outdone himself this time. Just received my hand combs (oak and walnut) and they are stunning. Excellent craftsmanship, as usual, and the wood grain turns almost iridescent in the light. Too bad I can’t get that to show in the picture. Nice and light weight, and the handles are super comfortable. And one of my favorite parts of BMH tools: no needle-sharp tines waiting to impale my clumsy self. I can’t wait to play! Thanks again for a wonderful product. :)
Fiber came today and I was well pleased. Thank you for the cute mag net. it will go on the door to the garage with list of pick ups. thank you
I ordered the wood balm for use on a new e-spinner. The product was shipped very fast. Effort had gone into making the packaging attractive. The balm works well and is pleasant to use. The store owner maintains excellent communication regarding orders. I would happily order from this store again.
