Keeping Traditions Farm News January 2014

Were in the middle of winter here in Michigan and its been a rough one. The Arctic air continues to come down keeping so many of us in the bitter cold. Keeping our animals safe has been the top priority at Keeping Traditions fiber farm. The livestock is all together in the barn –  bunnies, goats and llama to keep in the body heat, its amazing the difference this can make. Straw is piled high and stuffed into all the nooks and crannies to keep in the warmth. The angora rabbits love to play and dig in it and it really has helped to keep them warm along with their nice thick wool coats.  I am out several times a day with water. Its a challenge but so worth it when you see all those sweet little faces. Our baby angora bunnies are doing well and growing, they too will have some nice thick wool coats. Our German/English buck is old enough to go to a new home now.  The purebred German angora bucks will need to wait until February since they were born later in December. One is reserved, but have 4 available if you are interested in a nice fiber producing rabbit.

On the fiber side of the farm I have been working on making soft and fluffy angora/merino yarns. Here is a pink one, really like how it turned out. I am currently working on a sparkly blue angora/merino yarn, its partially made, still on the wheel  at this time, but will post it when I get it donepink angora/merino yarn

Also took a break from angora fiber for a bit and made a lockspun again, they are fun to do. I am going to play and make more of the art yarns. I like working with so many different fibers and see what I can do with them.
