The Fiber Room in Winter

skirting fleeces

soaking… washing

fleeces drying

dyeing lamb’s locks

carding… spinning

knitting… knitting…  and well, more knitting

The fiber room is a busy place as the winter weather drives us inside.  There are always plenty of projects in varying states of completion.  Much as each sheep has its own personality, each fleece is just a little bit different.  The lock structure, crimp and curl, the color and luster all differ from fleece to fleece.  It is a wonderful time of year as we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor and also share some of our beautiful fleeces with our great customers.

  1. It's lovely to see photos of the process and the hard work you do. I'm a novice knitter but hopefully soon I'll be able to experience some of this special yarn. x
