I was thinking this week that, since there is no longer a Bow Market, where I would normally offer my woolen goods to folks locally, I might as well post some items here in case folks are interested in unique handcrafted gifts for the upcoming holidays (or just to be outfitted as the weather cools).
So I’ve reactivated the Farm Stand page. There you’ll find hats, cowls, a couple super cute little sheep puppets, and a variety of hand-processed wools from my pasture gang. I hope to add some yarn listings soon.
Since I’ve resolved to get more of my washed fleeces carded up, I’ve gotten quite a bit done! I’ve got about 23 oz of Esther’s creamy white wool ready to go
About 19 oz total of three different shades of Dottie
And I think about 13 oz of Daphne from her Fall shearing a couple of months ago
I’ve also carded Fiona’s fall shearing (baby fleece), but I think I’m keeping that for myself 🙂
Just picked Daphne’s Spring 2020 fleece during the Hawks game this afternoon, and so will hopefully have that hot off the carder a little later on this week! I do really like this part of the wool processing, as I get really hands-on with the fleeces and can appreciate the variations in their colors and textures.
Also got some good work in on the hoophouse this weekend. It’s really starting to take shape!
The hoops are up, and the corner braces in. Next up- baseboards and hiprails!
Have a good week- and make sure you get out and vote.
