Winter Update

Winter is here.  Winter work consists of keeping the livestock in the barn (during the bad weather) and fed.  I am outside and in the barn more than I am in the house…  So far winter has been mild, but I am sure the snow is not too far off.

The sheep are happy and their fleeces look nice.

I have been finishing up some weaving.

This is a straight draw twill with a mix of different cottons (all different weights) for the warp and weft.  The warp was haphazardly sleyed in the reed.

Below is a Saori style scarf which is also a mix of different cottons for warp and weft.

I will be back to listing more wools in the shop since the holidays are over.  🙂
