Here you see a bin full of natural cotton both plain colors
and variegated. Take our 5 week cotton class and open a new
world of spinning. Many people would like to be able to use
this fiber in the warmer months. Let us unravel the spinning
mystery for you and open this exciting fiber world to you.
At right you see a small sample of the painted
rovings we offer. They come in wool and silk so you can
color coordinate your yarn. These can be purchased in super wash or regular roving and the variety of yarn produced from
these is not only fun but different each time you do them.
Give yourself a change from your norm. You won't regret it.
We have a large variety of natural colored fibers available
in both fleece and roving. Shetland fleeces are grown right
here on the farm and we have them available in April
although many are already spoken for by then so give us a
call early. Classes are offered in Shetland spinning from
the regular worsted weight yarn all the way down to the tips
necessary to make that cobweb or lace yarn you have been
wanting for a long time.
Fleece samples are taken off the
sheep in February so you can see what will be available for that years shearing. Raw Alpaca from the UP
comes in June to add to that fleece you
purchased or spin right off the animal -- and
beautiful Icelandic fleeces arrive in late November. We also
carry a long list of natural fibers from England and abroad.
Take our class in British Wools and learn about the variety
and the methods used to spin the various fibers available
from this well known textile country.
