The ewes are getting some well deserved rest and relaxation. They are regaining condition and, of course, busy at their main job… that of growing beautiful wool.
Check back for another give-away during our little Christmas in July celebration.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments!
Many thanks to all who braved the threat of stormy weather to join us at our Open House last Sunday. The sun came out, Aurora Celtic entertained us with beautiful music, and the pony rides were a huge hit with the kids. Merry, Pippen and Samwise delighted the crowd as only triplets can. We had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones.
We’re so very grateful to all the family members who were huge help in getting ready. Once again, everything fell together despite all the obstacles. Thanks, again, everyone!
Here’s a great look at wool from sheep like our Border Leicester and longwool crosses by Clara Parkes and Eunny Jang from Knitting Daily. Enjoy!
“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands”

While the weather outside has been pretty frightful, all the activity in the fiber room has been pretty delightful. There’s always something going on. Here’s a glimpse of some of the things we’ve been up to.
natural dyeing (l to r) cosmos, rhubarb, cosmos + cochineal, black-eyed susan
carding naturally-dyed cochineal lambs wool
naturally-dyed millspun yarn – black-eyed susan and hibiscus
Stolen moments… skirting, washing, carding, spinning, dyeing.
There is always ‘work in progress’ in the fiber room.
And, take a peek in the box above.
It’s filled with our long-awaited shipment from Stonehedge Fiber Mill.
There will be lots more to come about this beautiful yarn… probably the first of the week.
