If You Would Like Some of Your Own . . .

I just wanted to mention that my sister Barb sells her wonderful hand-dyed wool -- the same colors as we dyed over the weekend and others as well -- in her etsy shop thimblefolk.  I use it in many of my hooked rugs.  Fleur the Fox Terrier was hooked with lots of Barb's colors.

I am not the best photographer -- the camera flash made the colors in the photo in the previous post brighter than they actually are.  Her colors have a softness to them that my photos don't capture.  And, of course, computer monitors can distort colors . . .   The best way to view Barb's woolens is in person. Our first show of the year, the Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival,  is coming up on April 27.  It's our first year as vendors at this show, which is in its 104th year!  Come and visit if you are in the area.

Hi Sarah, thanks for your visit. I'm busy but it's a relaxed busy and I do have some time to myself which is nice.

I love your terrier rug and you did a splendid job on it.

This is exciting that you and your sister are being vendors at the big show. My daughter also die and spin her own wool. She's a weaver and teaches weaving full time. She sells her wool too.

Good luck with this new venture.
Hugs,
JB

oh thank you! I'm trying to avoid starting another process like dyeing so having a source sounds great. I'm off to check and then bookmark.

Love your puppy rug!
