Skirting (by Kathleen)
Well it was a nice day so I decided to skirt some fleeces. I managed to do three of Maura and two of Cocoa. They are beautiful (Moorit) chocolate brown shetland sheep and I'm going to send it to Argyle Fiber mill and be made into yarn. That leaves me about 200 lbs of raw wool sitting in the barn. It is going to get skirted and shipped out SOON! I really need more roving and yarn now. After lunch I started putting together needle felting kits of Santa, Snowmen, and pumpkins. I also put up colored roving, natural Shetland roving and handmade hats for our Gilfeather turnip festival. My daughter found a site called Beetsie's journal and it was a surprise to read it and find that the lady that write the journal is in our fiber of the month club and wrote about the beautiful Cormo fiber from This and That Farm. Its such fun to see where our farm shows up and especially to read when someone really enjoys the fiber. Got to close for now, its 10: 30 p.m. and I've got to be up early and at the craft fair by 8 a.m. Until next time,this is Maybelle Mama signing off.
