Stories from The Farm

April 1 2020

Well it is no Joke! Most of us are home trying to keep busy. Although at this point most Fiber Events are cancelled for the year, check back! I am working hard on my shawls that I was going to offer this year at Taos, but will be posting them as I make them. The “Outlander” one are natural & just need to have the wool spun & woven, but my colors need to be dyed, blended, spun & woven, but willput up as they are done. All of our lambs this year have been sold.

October was exciting. I went for my first time as a Vendor to the Taos Wool Festival. Set-up was done in the rain and sucked….BUT the weekend was a tremendous success. Many thanks to all the great folks I meet and made some new friends, thank you!

That Monday found me on a plane to Scotland. An educational excursion that was just wonderful. What a beautiful country! Plain to see why the place is over run with tourists like myself. Visited tartan factory, sheep farm, and weavers, and tapestry makers. Will Soon post some pictures here.

WELCOME TO 2020!

The year has started out cold, global warming?

December Christmas Barn was a great time and well received.

January is a time for frozen water buckets, and horse coats. Keeping an eye on expectant mothers. Lots of yarn spinning and shawl work.
