I’ve decided I’ll join Wovember’s WAL. I’ll be felting (wooly balls), knitting mason jar cozies, crochet work will be mug rugs, and of course I’m always spinning something. I will be working almost exclusively with wool but I will throw in a little mohair as well. Two reasons. I just bought some kid mohair from a woman, and some of the roving I got came from Brown Sheep Company and has 15% mohair in it. The Brown Sheep Company is my neighbor so I sometimes pick up wool and/or yarn from them.
I love how much fiber I can get locally. I have a friend who I spin with who processes and dyes her own bats, I have traded with several sheep owners for wool, I have people offering their fleeces in the spring to me, and I am neighbors with Brown Sheep Company. It doesn’t get much better than that for a fiber artist that wants to support local business.
