bartered wool


I spent the earlier part of the week home alone minding the farm. I have one doe that I’m keeping a keen eye on for ‘signs of heat’ so that I may arrange for her breeding (a most anxious time – for me!).

I do enjoy being ‘home alone’ since I usually immerse myself in fiber-y projects without the disruption of ‘wifely’ duties.

A couple of years ago (or more), I bartered my farm-raised organic lavender buds for a ‘sampler’ of Border Leicester raw wool locks. In an effort to deplete my wool stash, I used them (with my Shetland roving for the base/underlayment) to create/wet felt a woolly chair pad.


I love the natural variegated color and texture!

Happy fiber’n!
