So often you are in my thoughts as we bale hay, shear, spin, dye yarn and create new designs. Now with a little patience I am beginning to learn how to share these activites with you. This was an experiment overdyeing gray wool. It came out more colorful than I could imagine!
Lin is being sheared. He is a heavy one. Ray sits him against his knee for leverage. His fiber is abundant for a babydoll southdown. This year I combined Lin with Tom (our black sheep with brown/grey fiber) as a swirl roving and am now spinning up the lovely multicolor yarn to show you in the future! (note in the cover photo Lin and Tom are in the background)

Sassie is our guard llama. We love her and dare anyone to mess with her along the fence line. She will have a nasty surprise in store for you. Did I say we love her? We do but we will wait to shear her when our vet can help us! (7/26/09)
