Okay, I finally did it-I am blogging ! i am now in the 21st century ! lolBendigo Show News!
For all of you fibre fanatics, Ravelry members and knitting and spinning fans I am posting some photos of our stall at the Bendigo Sheep and wool show this year. It was a Fabulous experience as always and if you are ever able to get there when the show is on please do! it is full of fibre-holics and fluffy animals to pat and look at! Not to mention the awesome number of likeminded fibre nuts ! This year it was the first year that the Ravelry community flooded the show on the Friday and Saturday and it was great to talk to so many of you..I wish that the show would be on for longer because there are just not enough hours in those three days !

Our entry in the fashion parade with our very fluffy Angora Ruana that you can wear in lots of different waysAnother one of our entries at the Bendigo show: our handwoven Maya wrap that you can wear in about 12 different fun ways. This one was handspun alpaca, angora and cashmere with some funky gold yarn to add some bling!
I am still recuperating from the Bendigo Sheep and wool show last weekend , but I couldn't help myself and just had to spin some angora bunny and make a funky Snowbunny bonnet..
The Angora Bunny Bonnet is made from handspun, hand dyed yarn from our English Angora Bunny Jasmine(a red eyed white) & Frodo (smoke grey)Just letting you know by the way, that we give the bunnies a haircut every three months and groom them every two days. and since we are an all pesticide free and organic fibre farm all our animals are happy hopping and jumping around! I will post some more info soon.

Yes, finally our website is on the way: www.ixchel.com.au is coming soon ! keep checking this blog for more info!
Anyway, This blogging is really addictive.... I have so much to tell .......aaargh , but: I will be at the Arts Centre market every Sunday from now on as well and you are very welcome to cuddle some skeins, braids, fluffy bunny hats and more....even me..lol
Better get spinning again for the next project! Have fun and remember: Colour your spirit with fluffy yarn!
