Man...Covid is no joke! I'm glad to see that you are on the mend :) I am so in love with Paradise Fibers this month.

Carol Howe

That's a whole lot of fiber! It would be nice to share some info on gotland in your next video.

Tracy Irwin

What colour(s) are you going to dye the wool? Everything looks great with black! I'm so glad you are recovering well and you'll soon be able to enjoy the tea and lavender oil.

Susan Chapman

Sorry you cant smell or taste. My daughter in law is the same, its been months. in case you are interested there is a FB group for covid survivors who have lost taste and smell. If you're interested I can find the name of the group for you.


Glad you are recovering well! Love your videos


I just found your channel (thanks youtube for the suggestion :)). I have watched a couple of your videos and will have fun watching your spinning on your other videos. I’m working on getting my spinning and knitting mojo back, been a very unfun year and I would enjoy the peace they always bring. I have a hat I need to finish my spin for (alpaca/polypay blend I did on my blending board). I’d tell you if it was more alpaca or polypay but I forgot to write it down ??, glad I blended all 4 ozs at once ;). I really need to be better at that. I spin mostly on a wheel a friend left me when she passed away :(, it’s a Kromski Polonaise, a really pretty wheel that spins like a dream. My other working wheel is a Rick Reeves wheel that was gifted to me by someone in my Church. It’s a double drive and I’m use to scotch tensioning, so it’s a learning experience. Do you have a tensioning preference?

Tracey Craig McKibben

Such a lovely blend...it looks wonderfully soft!


You always make these sound so exciting! I'm seriously thinking of signing up soon.

Caroline Wolff

I am pretty excited to start my loom adventur ! I am knitting a pair of thrummed mittens !

T. Williams

Glad you are getting better. Love your videos.

Gisele Paquette

I am so sorry that you got COVID. Please take care. Love the fiber ❤️.

Dominique Michaud

This is enough fluff to make stuf!

Diane Gratcofsky

My boxes have been coming late, so when I can't stand it anymore I watch your unboxing LOL! Looks like a great box!

Lili Fox

I'm so glad to see you feeling better♥♥♥ I love this Yin/Yang theme!

Vicky K

What an interesting box. And yes, silk bleeds, crazy, never ending bleeding.

Shannon Denver

Hope you are feeling better. Love the fiber that came in the box.

Autmn Tooley

So tulsi is also known as holy basil and is good for sinuses. Mixed with chamomile and nettle acts like herbal Benadryl. Hope you feel better soon and have no lasting effects from Covid

Teresa Colern Moorman

The lavender is so strong. I thought it smelled like pinesol.

Jodi Degeorge

I ALWAYS forget to comment! Aaaaaaaagh‼️ But I am so happy you are feeling a bit better...take care friend❣️

Sharon King

So sorry. That sucks to be sick feeling like crap AND to have to deal with the taste/smell thing. Get well prayers being sent out to you and hubby. ??

Kach Savage

Glad you are recovering well. I love the look of the darker blend, it's seems very dimensional. Would you consider over dyeing it a deep rich colour?

Cate Gundlah

Glad you and your hubby are feeling better. I love the black fiber! I am mostly a full color person but that fiber is nice. I would definitely dye the white too.

Karen de Zwart

Hope you feel much better very soon. I love your videos I've been binge watching and love, love love them.

Amy Miller

I hope you and John get better soon ?❣️

Cat Maaske

How fun I just got mine today and can’t wait to see what you do with yours. This is my first ever fiber purchase. I bought a drop spindle to try it on even though I know NOTHING about spinning. Wish me luck. Added bonus I got a box from you today also ? I’m excited to use my new warp bar!!!! FYI the lavender oil smells amazing ? i

Lindsey Brown

I just got my package, love it! The stitch marker is awesome. Can’t wait to see you dye this!

Sandra Hageman

What a pretty black blend.
You are looking so much better. Don’t over do it. Cheers.


Can't wait to see what you do with the white! I hope you get your smell and taste back soon.

Bonnie Lundholm

Lavender is supposed to keep moths away also. I am allergic to it, so I haven't used it that way though. I love the black and white yin yang feel of this box.

Beth Bauer

So glad you are feeling better!
I just signed up for the fiber club today and I am so excited to start getting them.


I think I've binged every single video of yours in the last two weeks. Love your smiley upbeat authentic self! I have only ever hand spun with a pencil, but I think your videos are slowly convincing my husband that we need a wheel, a carding drum, and a rigid heddle loom soOoOooo...thanks!


i can't wait to see what you do with this fiber. i've already got plans myself to do some mosaic knitting.. .the Dissent Cowl.

Liz Urquhart

Hi, I just found your channel. I received a few boxes of paradise fiber a few years ago but didn’t do much with it. I recently pulled my spindle out to join a year long fiber make along with Grace, Marce and Nina. I would love to try this box. It is great to get a full 8 ozs in 2 fiber bundles.

Jackie Westfall

It is like Christmas every time you open a package from Paradise.

Kathleen Kastner

I love Gotland!!!! What a fun bag!!!

Jessica Spaid

Omg be glad you can’t smell because mine was overwhelming!!

Dana Nellums

You sound like you are feeling better on each new video. Beautiful fiber this month.

Ashley B

Trish, so glad you and your husband are recovering from Covid! I was wondering why you hadn't commented on the strength of the lavender from the bag. When you get your sense of smell back, you will absolutely notice it! Can't wait to see what you do with this.

Also, I absolutely did not realize silk would bleed so much when I first started spinning. It's only after several months that I realized the connection. Definitely good to share with us!


Glad to hear you are still improving. Don't rush it, take your time to get properly well. Love the sound of that blend and look forward to what you do with it.

Teresa Colern Moorman

See you soon!

Teresa Colern Moorman

Happy to hear things are still going well covid wise.

Karen Fowler

Beautiful fiber! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

Chris Hood

I definitely love the outtakes .

Erin Persinger

Glad you're starting to feel better! When I opened the bag, the lavender about knocked me over LOL!! I brought the oil and charm down to my fiber arts room, and now it smells like heaven in here. Very excited to play with these blends!

Alison Clayton

Sorry to hear you were ill, but pleased to learn you are on the mend and feeling better. I love love love the black and white theme of this months fibre. My team colours, LOL. Love to hear your ideas for it.

Abir Hussein

I just processed my first fleece and it happened to be a Gotland. This gives me a few ideas of how to prepare it for spinning. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

June Herrington

Hope you feel better soon. You are going to have so much fun dying the yarn and revealing the beautiful fibers

Joel Williams

I’m already planning what to knit with my yarn I’m going to spin from this months box. Stay well.

Renee Elmore

I can't wait for you to smell the essential oil. I could smell mine as soon as I opened my bag! Hope you get back to smelling soon! You're missing out! Love your channel!!

kathy Mikulin

Love your videos , feel better.

Christy Klemz

I have a new obsession with stitch markers. I just went through Etsy and saved a whole bunch so I can slowly buy them each paycheck. The big problem is that I rarely use stitch markers ?

Lori kula

Love the unbound this month. I think I may need to subscribe to them.

ana b

So glad you're feeling better! Excited to see how you dye the fiber. I think you may have talked me into subscribing to a paradise fiber box :D

KC Shaw

You looked like yourself again, I felt for you, and so happy your bouncing back! Glad to see the shop open can't wait to see what is new. I really need this Paradise sub fiber, Id love to spin and dye/overdye How fun !

Tania Mitchell

Congrats Kathy. Glad you are recovering well Trish

Dolores Jacobs

Always exciting to see what comes.


I don't think you should dye the white! I like the stark contrast.

Clo Tricots

The white fiber dyed in some sort of gradient would look so cool plied with the dark. Thanks for making videos even through covid recovery!

Penny Gonzalez

This bag almost knocked me over when I opened it! The lavender is very strong. I definitely do not have COVID ?

Stitching Nana

I know what I want to do with this months bag! I thought the lavender was nice.

Serenity Fibers

Can't wait to see what you do with this blend! Dyeing over the yang would be interesting too for a deep dark color.


So cool! And your always so lovely! I worry about the essential oil though. I’ve heard they are dangerous to pets. Are they?

Bonnie McGee

I am glad your are recovering from Covid-19, take care. Stay safe have fun spinning. ??

Kate Taliaferro

Such a cool idea! I can’t wait to get my spinning wheel operational!

anne schlehlein

I hope you and your husband are doing better. What a wonderful unboxing.

Diana Blumczynski

Such a gorgeous blend! And I love your idea of dying the white to get to enjoy how all of the different fibres in the blend would take the colour differently.

Kim Lyne

That Gotland looks interesting. I’ve spun some straight Gotland and didn’t love it.

I hope your smell/taste comes back soon! Mine was gone for a week or two, but my husband’s was gone for longer.

becky shook

I love to watch you open the pkgs I wish you were all better

Alli Green

What a cool bag! Thanks for sharing! I love this idea of balance lately and its super that paradise compared duality to plied yarn! ?. Glad you guys are still on the mend! Hope you get your sense of taste and smell back soon!

Tina Simonsen

I've spun a lot of pure gotlænder wool... It's so lovely to spin.... Guess blending with silk and merino is a softer blend... Your fiber is looking so good ?

Karen Broussard

I’m so glad you’re feeling better, Trish! I can’t wait to see what you do with the fiber! Definitely dye the white!

Annette Mixon

Hope you and yours get better soon. I have some Black mohair yarn in my stash that I wasn’t sure what to do with. I’m thinking I need to use it with these fibers. Now to find a pattern.

Leanne Henninger

Glad you're feeling better! My son and I had covid in August. The loss of taste/smell was our worst symptom , and the one that lingered longest.

Janelle King

I've never been tempted to consider a subscription for anything until I got my spinning wheel in December and discovered Paradise does one!

Lori Knight

I’m glad you’re feeling better hopefully the tiredness goes away soon

Chris Hood

Cool, Gotland, seems like it would be nice to spin.

Beverley Lawton

Love this package and can’t wait to see how you dye the white Gotland blend... Such a shame you can’t smell the lavendar... I guess it’ll take weeks til you’re back to normal. My daughter (a doctor here in UK) caught Covid at work and she was three months getting her taste back! Take care?

Alison Hlathein

I’m glad that you are on the mend, and taking it easy. I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me to try weaving again. I finally enjoy it!

E Roff

Hope you get your taste and smell back soon. Can’t wait to see what you do with the white wool blend.

Sam Stewart

I'm glad you seem to be on the mend, and I hope things return to normal very soon. I've been on a spinning kick on my drop spindle lately, and right now I'm working my way through some white mill ends with a black stripe (feels like BFL), so that fits right in! Once my pound of Polwarth arrives, it might be time to start thinking about dyes... lol


Love the shine of Gotland! Would love to spin some!

Kitty nekome

I have been wanting to try gotland wool! Cant wait to see what u do with it <3

Robin Foster

What a fun one! Hope you’re feeling back to normal soon!


So happy you are feeling better! So fun to watch the excitement of the unboxing and I haven't even tried to spin yet.... the fibre journey continues :)

Wild Cottage Ireland, Slow Life & Knitting

Love the scented stitch marker! Hope you can smell & taste again soon ?

Jenni Leggate

That looks like a fun bag! I haven’t spun Gotland yet so I’ll put it on my to do list. Hope you’re feeling better soon.

valeda jennings

Ooooooo, sooo glad you are feeling better. That....is the best news.


So glad to hear you’re getting better! :) What colour are you thinking of dyeing the bare Gotland?


Hope you get to enjoy the lavender soon! And I look forward to seeing you spinning the gotland, would love to hear anything you might know about spinning tweed yarns!

Wonky Warrior Knit & Crochet Crafts Scotland

those are lovely. yes sari silk bleeds on washing but its so nice to spin.

Melanie Reising

I love watching your videos. I'm trying to spin the heather/gray right now but am having trouble. I'll keep at it!

Kim Drost

I really have to get a different job so that I can get fun stuff like this too. I really enjoy watching your channel. I’m planning my first set of dish towels because you make it look so easy. Thank you for sharing

Kathleen Thorene

I got my fiber box yesterday and love the fiber. Thanks for the idea to dye the white.

Holly Scott

Trish, so glad you are feeling better! I can't wait to see how you dye that white fiber - Gotland is so shiny; I bet it will be beautiful!


Of the dark fibre looks so soft......but you might feel like your spinning your puppy! Lol!


I always watch your videos and always forget to leave a comment! I love the unboxing of all the fiber things!!

Alicia Watt

Yay! So many ideas for these. Glad you're feeling better!

Kathy Costello

Oh my gosh! I won! I am so excited. Thank you Trish, I am grateful that you are getting better and you are still able to share your joy with us.

Danielle Brown

Glad you’re feeling better. ?
