Was able to have a booth at the Shepherd's Market yesterday in Rush, and had a wonderful time. Enjoy so much catching up with people that share the same interests as Rich and I, talking about sheep, yarn, spinning, hopes and dreams. I love hearing about people's journey with working with fiber, and what their plans are with the things they find in my booth that they decide to take home with them.
I did talk with a couple people about how I wash fleeces, so as promised I will post a primer on that later on as I am going to be washing a fleece today.
Here are some photos I managed to take:
|This girl sure can knit. She used wool from our farm and an neighboring farm to create this lovely shawl|
|The lock samples in the center of this photo are our demonstration of the variety of shetland fleeces, and is a good illustration of what we are and are not breeding for in our flock.|
|Some raw fleeces from the 2019 clip along the bottom. I have some more work to do going through the raw fleeces in the next few weeks, then will post on blog for sale.|
