Columbus Day weekend

Come see us at the Wool Arts Tour. We will be at our usual spot in Deering, NH at Spinner Farm.

Come out to see us this weekend in Tunbridge, VT

Where we are located on the fairgrounds.

This should bring you to a $1 off coupon for admittance. If not, it is also on the front page on the far right, part way down the page.

Stop by and say hi. We will have llama, alpaca, mohair and LOTS of breeds of wool for sale at $5 per pound. Buy 1/2 pound or the whole bag! Your choice. We will also have whole fleeces available, as well as roving, yarn and knit goods.

Hope to see you this weekend.

My boys

 Christopher, my 3 year old Horned Dorset ram in front.
He would not stay still for a picture...

 Stormy Weather, on the right. Registered black Romney.
His 2 year old son, Jeremy, a Dorset/Romney.
Behind them is Cloud. A very OLD Romney wether.

Out in the hay field

My only job in the field is driving the truck. John & Pam Wylie drive their tractors.  Occasionally Jerry drives them as well. Then Pam & I drive our hubby's trucks and the 'boys' pick up and stack the hay. This was an awful light hay year. We will have to find some place to buy hay this year. Still very disappointed in our long time hay guy in his deciding NOT to hay for us this year. Getting round bales is so much easier!!!!

Check out this blog post!! How to felt a rug from raw fleece

The English version is further down.

 We have a BUNCH of Icelandic fleeces that are pre-felted and would be great for this.
