We have been hit with the flu, school has been missed, and house work has been ignored. We’ve spent our time cuddled under blankets with books and “pizza”
Or consuming large amounts of coffee to get us through the day
We won’t let it get us down, there is far to much to do.
Despite the freezing rain coming down outside, we have flowers popping up
We have veggies of all kinds making appearances in our indoor greenhouse
and we have 150 new babies
Making friends with old babies.
My wheel has been fixed and the cake batter romney yarn has been plyed.
Wool combs have arrived
and I can already see a large difference between combing and carding, also carding already combed fiber is softer than regular carded fiber.
The merino for instance. Combed vs carded. Not perfect as I am realizing this merino was picked out when I had no idea how to pick wool and I have a lot of second cuts it appears. I know better now.
Look how nice and clean the romney looks, free of dirt and neps.
Combed and carded together.
My mind is racing with different ideas for this wool. Will I stick it on Etsy, will I dye it and spin it? I’m just not sure. I can say that I am very excited for the fiber festival in a few weeks.
Have a great day folks!
