Salute to FIBER GOATS!

It’s about time I paid a little attention to all my WOOLY friends and fiber goats…


…or is it… to my friends and their WOOLY goats??

Either way… I love my friends, my friends with WOOLY goats and my WOOLY goat friends! I think that about covers it.

…two are better than one.

The more, the merrier!

Black mohair on silver/gray Shetland.

I wet-felted the natural black mohair right onto the Shetland, and then top-dressed with a few staples of additional mohair.

I used the same technique with the white goat… a little disappointed. There isn’t as much contrast between the white Pygora and silver Shetland. Would have been better to have a darker background for contrast.

Yes, I used my Brutus, Pygora (Type B) raw staples. They’re lovely and lustrous.

But, my hubby said it’s like looking for a polar bear in a snow storm! Geeeesh! What do guys know????

Happy fiber’n… with GOATS too!!!!

Flea Market Find

If you like ‘au natural’ fiber…like I and most fiber artists, then you’re going to love my 100% ‘new’ wool handwoven throw…

…that I found for $5.  L.O.V.E. it!

But wait…that’s not all! How about this handwoven mohair ‘throw’ by The Three Weavers, Texas ~ made in the U.S.A. ~

The mohair throw was a little more PRICEY…at $10! WOO HOO!

Some day ~ when I get my loom in working condition ~  :/

I’m gonna weave blankets with my Shetland wool!!! Some day…
