The spring season Fiber Festivals are fast approaching! Shearing day is booked! Several dams are due to deliver their cria! Grass management planning and activities are underway.
Our fiber has been transformed! We skirted the raw fleece and sent it to a local mill for processing. After a patient wait, that raw fleece has been masterfully processed into stunning yarn and roving. It is lustrous and soft. It even smells nice.
YARN: We have yarns from animals that we can name: Our medium-brown Johnny Fleece was blended with 20% bamboo for a unique, silky brown tweed; Habanero gave us a pretty, soft, light tan fleece which we mixed with 20% merino, it has a great hand and nice memory; Cervato’s yarn is a rich, VERY dark brown, which was also mixed with 20% merino. It has a gorgeous drape! Sold by the skein @ $22 for bamboo blend and $20 for merino blend.
All of our custom-spun, boutique yarns are 250 yards of 3 ply sportweight. We also have co-op yarn in natural colors as well as naturally hand-dyed yarn. You have to come see it and feel it!
ROVING: We have three large bags of roving. Medium brown from Johnny Fleece and two bags of a darker brown from his momma, Willow. Sold by weight @ $3 per ounce.
