fibre-y things

February 25, 2018

the weather co-operated, snow melted

and the spin-in was a go

a line-up of spinners and wheelsand more wheels

everybody had a good time shopping

Tracy is almost finished building a new processing mill

her alpacas are gorgeous

the fibre is irresistible – I didn’t even try!

I’ve already started spinning the black – an alpaca/merino blend

and I’m going to need more of this alpaca/silk blend

but the loom is naked so it is back to thinking about warps

I inherited several binders of samples from a group called Cross Country Weavers

and have always admired this twill/lace block samplebeautiful with the light shining through

perfect for scarves

and a good day to wind the warp

    there’s a project here to recuperate merino sheep. after all they come from here and was the source of richness of castille (shh the only thing they had besides bramble bushes ) just in case people wonder why they crossed the waters and landed in america lol.

      Neki – most of the merino we use locally comes from Australia or N.Z. It is very high quality.

    I wish I lived in a location where there was so much interest in fibre-y things!
