I picked up some of my fiber from Charlotte at Superior Fibers on Sunday. I dropped it off at the Oregon Flock and Fiber at the end of September. I love opening the bags and diving into the processed fiber. It’s better than Christmas for me 🙂 This round I had them blend some of the rose gray fiber from Tommy, our alpaca, in with some of the Jacob fleeces. It turned out better than I could have hoped for!
The Jacob fiber is from Wrangler and Amber. It is so soft.
I also had a lilac fleece from Celeste processed and it is really lovely…
I had some black/white and lilac fleeces turned into felted sheets.
I haven’t paid attention to yeild pecentages before, but thanks to Boulderneigh, I was curious this go around. The average was 73%.
Now I need an afternoon all to myself to spin away 🙂
If you are interested in buying any of the above products, please visit our store at Local Harvest.
Those variagated bumps are lovely! (I have plenty of my own; I do not need fiber; I do not need fiber; I do not need fiber….)
Wow Shannon, it looks so soft and inviting. I sure wish I lived next to you so you could teach me what to do with all that stuff. 😉 I’m a dummy in that area…. Like I’ve said before. LOL
I admire you for doing so much with your fleeces, I still have fleeces from last year that I don’t have processed yet. Maybe this will help me get it in gear. Will you explain what you mentioned about yeild percentages, I’m very interested in knowing what it’s about.
It must have been like Christmas when you opened up that package!!
Mmmm! SO yummy! I love it all! 🙂
