Angorino Day and Frilled Lizards !

Angorinos drying in the soft breeze...a heavenly day on the Ixchel fibre farm

A very late blogmessage from me on a friday, but as usual I ran out of time....I had the greatest time thinking about new colour combinations and trying them out on angorino tops and our own cashmere/merino lace yarn. Please let me know what you think and if you want to adopt some of the new angorino braids or the yarn: I can send them to you easy as and as you know , because I only do relatively small batches, there are only a few braids in the colour combinations available: so just NAG ME anytime anywhere if you want one or a couple. Happy to help.

The colours around me on the farm are gorgeous: the apple, pear, nectarine and cherry trees are blossoming, the sun is shining!, the sky is the most magnificent blue and the walnut tree has the most amazing hues of green. In short it is all amazingly tempting and inspirational when you are dyeing fibre ! and most of all: it is FUN!

So here they are the new angorino braids! YEAH! They are all still AU$19 ! So grab one (or more...:-) and give them a good new home !
