Stitches Bound! Booth 1040 Spinners heaven!

Well the days are coming and passing very fast.  My head is spinning!! Spent last Saturday at Sue's farm helping with shearing.  Oh I really love the little lambs!!  When I left I had 4.5 fleeces.  They will be available to purchase in the booth this year.  We divided them up but you can get the whole fleece if someone else has not beat you to it!!  These fleeces are right from the sheep - Karli, Katy, Velma, Glory and Hopi. Check out the pics!!  Fleeces:  Velma,  Hopi,  & Karli  Still have 2 more to divide !!



                              Velma -- a prize winning fleece





All have staple lengths of 4.5 - 5 inches.
The crimp is scrumptious.  The white fleeces all shine with luster.

Have wrinkled and spotted hands from all the dyeing -  and there is still some undyed wool left!

This year we will have spin to knit kits for the Energized Singles Jacket -

Now to get everything in the back of the truck to take to Stitches.  Any one have an extra large shoehorn I could borrow??

See you at Stitches!!


  1. hello, i can't come to stitches west, but would be interested in some of this grey fleece (Velma)...please contact me shudin@gmail.com

  2. I just thought you might like to know that Velma had a big ram lamb on Sunday. Unfortunately he is white but we love him anyway. Mom and baby are doing great. - Sue Reuser
