So, please keep an eye on my updates and also the facebook and Instagram posts.
I try to post as much as I can to keep everybody updated. A you can see, I am still working hard to keep everybody well supplied with lots of fibery and yarnie goodies and shipping them all off to all of you. Your support is making a huge impact on keeping our fibre farm going. As a small micro business and small farm, we do not receive any funding or “corona relief funding” so I am extremely grateful that there have been many people who are still ordering and giving us support! I will work very hard to keep on enabling everybody as long as I possibly can !
In these stressful times I do feel that we all need a bit of relief and doing anything crafty, whether it be knitting or weaving, spinning or felting, it all helps keeping the stress levels as low as possible. And, for all of you who are doing homeschooling now as well, it is a great time to introduce kids to crafts to get them some “time away from screens” and learn new skills. I don’t know about you, but I am so grateful I have been taught weaving, knitting and spinning at a young age, preparing me in an amazing way for these apocalyptic times, in a good way.
I am keeping busy, and this blend I am offering you today, certainly has kept me busy! Camel, Angora bunny, Cashmere and Silk ! To blend fine fibres like that all together including silk with it’s long staplelength, means that you have to be on the ball at all times. Over blending and over gilling means that you will get tops that will have nepps in them. When you overwork fine fibres you can damage the fibres easily , which can make them harder to spin and also do a total disservice to the super fine fibres they are. So, hours and hours are spent to get it just right. I am over the moon with this batch and I hope you are to. I thought we all needed a big fluffy hug to keep us going !
Stay safe, stay connected and please, do not forget to have fun !
