Inventory has been updated!

I have removed everything that sold out at the Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival this past weekend.  It was a fantastic show and we want to thank the organizers and all of the people who came out and shopped.  Everyone had a great weekend!

We will not be adding in the newest batch of fiber until after Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival the first weekend in June.  Several items that would have been added have already sold out (sorry!!) and with another festival less than two weeks away, we want to wait and see what is remaining afterwards before adding them to the online shop.

We hope to see you June 3rd and 4th at Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival!!

Shop offline until May 24, 2016, for Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival

Sandy and I will be vending at Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, 2016.  If you are in vicinity, please come a visit us there.  The shop should be back online on Tuesday, May 24, after I have had a chance to update the inventory.  We are sorry for the inconvenience, and we hope to see you either at Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival or back here on the 24th.

 

Happy Spinning!!

5 Fibers Added to Clearance Sales Page!!

We have added 5 lovely fibers (including a Grand Champion and a Reserve Champion) to our Clearance Sales page.  The reason is that this fiber is a little on the sticky side from the lanolin.  It washes out beautifully, but it makes it a little bit of a challenge to draft – not much, but a little – if spun straight from the roving.  Because of that we are discounting it $0.50 per ounce.

RIP Graham Lamb

For those of you who have enjoyed the stories I have told at the various fiber festivals about him and who have loved spinning his wool, I have sad news for you.  Graham Lamb of Equinox Farm died yesterday.  His owner, Sara (aka thecrazysheeplady) let me know last night before the blog post was uploaded.  I cannot tell you how sad that makes me.  Yes, he had the dirtiest fleeces I have ever washed, but, boy, did it wash up beautifully and it was a joy to spin.  He is going to be missed very much.

Rats….
