Fiber is Good for You

Three Bags Full

We got our fiber back from Zeilinger's Wool--three bags full of llama-sheep roving! What a treat. (Shearing day pictures and fiber prep here.)


Here's the blend of Graty's fiber with a merino-rambouillet
fleece from my aunt and uncle's flock.


It is cottony-soft and a heathery cream color.


This is a blend of Lacey and Switzer with a Shetland fleece.


It is very cinnamon-y and the Shetland, which was almost gold,
gives it a soft glow.


And finally, Llannie's fiber combined with black Shetland.


I can't believe how utterly black it turned out!


Pepper Prepares

Here's one of Pepper's show pictures for the weekend.
I just can't believe how big she's getting to be!


We've practiced getting in and out of the trailer, which she doesn't much care for, but I think she's going to enjoy all the attention. She just loves people.

Oh, that black Shetland looks awesome! And the final picture of Pepper is fabulous.

Are you going to spin it all yourself? How very exciting to have your own stash from your backyard.
Good luck, Pepper!

Yes, fiber is good for you! I want to start spinning, but I've got so much stuff going on its insane.

Pepper is so adorable! I can't get over how cute she is.

Thanks! Llannie is sort of an espresso/dark chocolate-y llama, so I was really delighted with the blend with the black shetland. I mean--it's as black as a Mayhem, a Chaos, or an Isis!
