Farm News – August 2, 2013

On August 3, 2013, in News, by tina

Summer is going by fast, I guess that’s what happens when we keep busy. The baby goats are growing fast, its hard to believe they will be 3 months old soon. Their moms have done a great job, they are nice healthy babies. Its been fun to watch them play and chase each other around, even Tansy our dwarf loves to join in.

In the rabbit barn our lilac doe had a litter of 3 black babies. They recently opened their eyes and are just starting to explore their area —  Babies are so Cute!

On the fiber end of the farm I have been spending time dyeing a variety of angora.  I have quite a few colors that will be available soon. Its fun to blend the colors in with soft wools, alpaca, or just spin it as it is to make a pure angora yarn.  Maybe I will make some fun batts with part of it : )

Its been a crocheting summer for me. This is one project I just finished – a cowl I made with an angora blended yarn. Its so soft. I am more spinning pure angora yarn too, I want to make more baby bonnets and booties.

I will be posting some of the items on etsy, and others I am getting  ready for the fall shows. Like always if their is anything you are interested in on the site and cannot find in a listing please email – I can let you know what I have available and I do custom orders.

Thank you for visiting! Tina
