It is time to weigh and package this year's shearing for your spinning or felting creations. Our flock's fiber blend of merino and rambouillet breeds spins quickly for me even though I am definitely not a good spinner. I prefer to wet felt the fiber into thin, flowing fabric or sometimes with several layers make it heavier and hard enough for water to bead on the finished piece. Suzanne Pufpaff washes our fleeces and cards them into roving or batts at her fiber mill so this is another "All Michigan Made" item from our farm shop.
Some of last year's roving is still available and to make space, the 2009 roving is now on special at $4.00 for a 2 ounce bag. When you go to the web page of our natural roving and top, you will see a box labeled Coupon Code; enter 2009 before you click on the button to Add Roving to Cart and you will get the special price of $4.00. If you don't enter the code, you will receive the 2010 roving at the regular price of $5.00.
