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!!!!
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…
