Happy 2009 !!! It's going to be FUNKY & FINE !

Happy hoppy 2009 from all of us here at the Ixchel Fibre Farm!
I am convinced that this year is going to be fun, filled with fuzzy wuzzy fibre and fine! There are soooo many new projects on the go here at our fibre farm it is mind blowing but hey, a new year, new creativity, new energy !

Paul is busy making the farm a safer place so he is building steps. As with everything he does, it has to be RIGHT, precise, meticulously planned and sturdy as a rock...I think he missed his calling and should've been an architect. He finished putting the drainage in (which, believe me, we NEED in this wet rainforest area!), dug heaps and heaps of soil out and is now placing the steps, that now look like, we are not training for the Olympics.....Although the chooks are very keen on hopping on and off the "hurdle steps" at the moment..

Caramel, our "chook who thinks she is a dog" inspects Paul all the time to see if everything is going according to plan.....
Paul smiling, because the drainage pipes are in and it's time for putting the steps in place!

2009 sounds like its going to be a good year! I am looking forward to the polwarth, as I am really keen to try that and the heritage mohair - could you tell me more about these goats- are they just standard angora goats, or old bloodlines or are they a unique breed?

Oh, I am about to start spinning the kingfisher angorino top I bought from you a while back.... yeah, I am slow... I just like to finish one thing before I start something else!
