The guild is trying a wool pot luck. Members brought in any type and amount of fiber they wanted. We are having it blended together at the mill and our one of a kind blend made into roving. Each member will get back close to the same amount they brought in.

We have a blend of 33% Shetland, 35% Mystery breed sheep fiber, 8% East Fresian sheep, 12% Suri Alpaca, 12% Angora rabbit.  Colors ranged from white , dark brown, light brown, gray tan, red, purple. 

We will post the finished roving once it comes back.

Field trip to Spry Whimsy  Fiber studio . Her we are learning to make felted flowers 






 OUR FIBER IS BACK

It turned out wonderful.  The texture is VERY nice ,soft and could be warn against the skin, The color is unique, it seems to change depending on the light you are in. It will change from a heather mauve to a gray mauve to a brown mauve. Very interesting color.

It supn up really easy with no nubs and noils

 
Here are some of the beautiful picture batts we created. We found a picture and carded a fiber batt  on the drum carder to match the color and proportions of color to the picture
