Our next venture is attending the Midwest fiber and folk show in Crystal Lake, Il. We will be out of doors in a tent. Hope to see some of you there.
We are developing a wonderful line of luxury fibers, including cashmere, silk boucle, kid mohair and silk/alpaca blend. And for kids of all ages, we will soon have superwash merino in several weights in vibrant colors. Pattern support is being developed for all of the above.
keep cool, Janet

We have returned from the Greencastle Fiber Event. It was a cold and blustery weekend! We had a great time; sold lots of yarn, patterns, knitting needles and stuff.
Here you can see one of my students work from the rigid heddle class. She chose rayon ribbon, blue singles and a cotton rickrack yarn to create her scarf.
Janet and I are back in the studio dying yarn.
I am currenting working on a group of Alpaca yarns that will be coming out in the fall. New patterns, yarn and colors all created for Alpaca yarn.The Alpaca yarns are produced in the US; three ply sport weight yarn is a Missouri and Kansas grown fiber. These yarns will be both natural and variegated colors. We will have samples out shortly.

Like lumpy bumpy, well we have that as well. Janet has made up some beanies in that yarn. One skein is adquate. Great fun. As all of the above are in limited quantities except for the fingering wool, we do not have them on the web site as yet.
Keep checking our blog for more updated information. We love to hear from you as well.
