Thanks to Fibers 4 Ewe fiber mill for giving us a head start by processing some of our raw spring 2012 fleeces into roving, I’ve produced our first yarn made from our own Icelandics!  




We processed roving from Molly and Shirley’s fleeces (mother and daughter) to make this soft steely grey yarn in single and bulky 2 ply versions.  


Can’t wait to get started on Daisy’s white roving next!  And then there’s all the knitting to be done!


Thank goodness for the quiet winter nights by the woodstove…
