Zoe’s Fleece and Fiber Enchancement
So, I’ve been very busy this weekend, but I’m just going to take a moment to post a few goodies that were acquired Friday at the Midwest Folk and Fiber Festival and some serious stash enhancement by mail.
This is a merino/silk blend. This colorway flew off the shelf and it was all gone by Friday afternoon.
I also picked up a new felting tool. I’ve been eyeballing this little gem for awhile to help get the bodies done quicker. I have to still get the mouse face done.
I saw a note come over the Spin-Sales group and went to check it out. It’s a covered cormo. Look at the crimp and lock formation. Gorgeous. This is Zoe’s Fleece from Sue at Cormo Sheep & Wool Farm. Sue was a pleasure to deal with and talk about super fast shipping. They have some more gorgeous fleeces available – so buy them up before I do. If you’re interested Sue has won many awards with these fleeces. I’m totally smitten and will be putting her on my list for next year as well.
I can’t wait to wash this beauty. I’m planning on washing this one myself and keeping it in lock form. I would like to dye up some locks and do some color blending for some marl yarns. Yes, I learned a new word today. 🙂
