What I am Working On

Just washed Pamela's fleece.   Pamela is a 2014 lamb, all ewe lambs from 2014 Rich named for songs with girl's names.  I don't know what song Pamela is, but I love her fleece. She is a fawn katmoget, and is very soft and crimpy.  She is out of Frangelico and Egyptian Autumn.

I probably won't get to carding it until Sunday, after the WNY Fiber Arts Festival.  I am almost as excited about carding her fleece as I am about the fiber festival!!


I am currently spinning Blue Sapphire's fleece from 2013.  She was 3 when she donated this fleece, and it is still so very soft, feels like a lamb fleece.  I already spun up her grey parts and used for my sheep heid kits.  The white is really pretty, with intermittent flecks of grey.

Fingerlakes Fiber Festival

This past weekend was the Fingerlakes Fiber Festival at the Hemlock fairgrounds.  It was so fun, really great to see all our fiber friends and talk about their projects made from our soft shetland wool.  Thank you to all for your support and kind words about our soft shetland wool!
