Preparing for Fibrefest!

Busy getting ready for Fibrefest.  Shearer's Girl Yarns will be in Marquee 2, stand D2, do come and say hello!  I'm excited to announce I will have copies of YarnMaker magazine available at Fibrefest, including the current edition with my article 'Dirt, Sweat and Grunting' about how I first learned sheep shearing.  Must press on. Lots to do!

Moody Monday

Do you ever have a moody Monday? This picture of a well proportioned Texel ram says exactly how I feel today.  

If you are wondering why this ram is yellow, that's not his natural colour, it's a temporary dye used on show sheep.  This fine fellow was at the Kent County Show.

How's your Monday going?

Yarn Preview!

Today I'm going to give you a sneak preview of the yarns which will be in the shop soon.  In my last post I explained the origin of the yarn.  I have left some of the yarns in their natural colour and dyed others with acid dyes.  I am also busy dyeing some skeins with natural dyes.  Here are a couple of the acid dyed colourways:

These yarns and additional colourways will be in the shop soon!  They will also be available from my stand at Fibrefest.
