New Fiber back from the Mill!

Just in!  We got back two fleeces from the fiber mill, all made in beautiful roving, ready for spinning.  Very very light VM, and in a very pretty heather gray color.

One is from our yearling ewe, Galadriel.   Shetland through and though.  Super soft and just really pretty.  I think it will take to dye so nicely.  It will be available in the shop within a day or two.

The second fleece was a mix of Shetland and Angora goat…  It’s softer, yet a light gray heather color that will spin and dye like a dream!   I can’t wait to play with some of it!  That’s the best part about raising fiber animals…  you get to spin and use this lucious home grown fiber!!!

This fleece’s roving will be available as well!

We only have a total of 6 pounds of this beautiful roving.  We will be getting some solid mohair roving back in about 6 weeks…  beautiful gray from our goat Sam and then some white from our twins, Rana and Rafeka!  That will be lovely.

Our sheep are growing some beautiful fiber this year, just lovely to look at and touch still on the sheep!  We shear our sheep around the first of March and then it takes a while for it to come back from the mill.  We will also sell raw fleeces this year off particular sheep, if you are interested!  Please check back soon!
