Just a few photos of dyeing our fiber the other night. On the bottom of the pot is a grey Jacob wool that is going purpleish, and on top of that a merino roving that took on a greenish=blue and a few dots of pink. It's going to be fun to spin. On Friday I try out a different spinning wheel, and this is what I am going to spin as soon as I get the wheel figured out.

Little one out in the pasture. This is one of our Jacob lambs. Not sure which one of the presidents it is, they are all named after U.S. presidents.
Our showy little shetland and her lamb.
This proud looking young ram lamb is a handsome Jacob sheep, out of "Janette". If you notice the tightness of his curls...that is the look that I love in a lamb, it means such a lofty, soft fleece to come! His grandad's fleece was so soft I could spin it without carding it, just wash and dry. Like a CLOUD!

What an exciting moment yesterday when Dean came home with our entire wool harvest from the mill! The whole front room of our house is full of roving and stuffing! There are six beautiful natural colors, three different browns, (one of them makes me need a piece of chocolate), a jacob white, a hog island white, and a lilac. If you are looking for some great yarn, or roving contact us now, you have a great selection to choose from. I can't wait to start spinning the lilac. So... I will talk to you later!

Also carded two alpaca fleeces. How does carmel cria sound? It's so soft. and the other one was white, soft pure white like the snow. Carder broke down, waiting to finish. This is the life on our farm.
