Or so I am told.
I didn’t actually meet any of these sheep, but I did find some new-to-me wools of southeast regional breeds that should be fun to test drive!
Neat, eh? That’s Gulf Coast Native and Florida Cracker Sheep wool (plus a bit of an undisclosed blend in a colorway I couldn’t resist). Was in town visiting family, and discovered there was a fiber mill right in the neighborhood! So couldn’t miss the opportunity for a field trip.
If you are ever in New Smyrna Beach, check out Pioneer Fiber Mill. Was cool to see what they have going on there- they have beautiful Belfast MiniMills equipment including a De-Veg-er ( I think maybe that is the fiber separator in the website) and a little retail corner in the mill with fiber and yarn.
Also was able to get almost three hats knit up in the travel to and fro.
These thick and cozy caps (and lots of other woolies) will be available next Sunday at the Alger Holiday Market
Have a good week!
Your hats are beautiful! Have a great sale, and let us know what you think of the new-to-you breeds.
Thanks Michelle- will do!
That is cool you got your hands on Florida wool! Who knew?
I know, right? was pretty cool to find something wool-related in the neighborhood!
