Birthday in the House...
We have a birthday in the house today!! Isaac has been with us over a year now and we couldn't be more grateful for all he has helped us through! You might have met him at our Christmas tree farm! He's great at picking out a beautiful tree, but also helps work all year long to spray, mow, weedwack. If you visited our fiber mill, you may have seen him working hard there too! Sometimes, if you're lucky, you might even catch him singing along to one of his favorite songs while working! Happy Birthday Isaac... We hope your day is as good to you as you are to us!
Here are some photos from the Angorapalooza event at the PA State Farm Show this year!! We had four fabulous teams and it was an "unbeeweaveable" experience for all involved! Looking forward to continuing to grow this fun event! #PAFarmShow #angorabunny
2022 Sheep to Shawl...
Special shout out to our friends at @flyingfibers for entrusting Madi and her team with their precious little Scout for the contest! Scout was definitely a very important part of the team and they couldn't have done it without her!
Fiber day at the Farm Show...
What an exciting time it was at the Farm Shows Sheep to Shawl last night! While the crowd we are used to wasn't there, the contest was just as exciting and the teams were in such great spirits!! Madi's team competed in the Sheep to Shawl for the first time since aging out of the youth fleece to shawl! They were super speedy and were off the loom in 2 hours and 18 minutes! The did a Pittsburgh city sky theme and their shawl was just beautiful! They even ended up selling their practice shawl to their new #1 fan!
Ashley also attended the fleece auction at the end of the night! She is strongly devoted to supporting small, local farms and businesses! She ended up coming home with the Champion fleece from the fleece show and another beautiful 1st place Fleece! We applaud those who dedicate so much time and effort into raising gorgeous sheep that produce these scrumptious, quality fleeces and are proud to support their efforts. Now that's just not something you can find on Amazon prime! #PAFarmShow
We did something new and entered a live decorated concolor wreath at the #pafarmshow this year! Out of a beautiful class, we were pleasantly surprised with 2nd place!! Check it out at the PA Christmas Tree Growers booth in the Main Hall! You might even find yourself in a surprise snow flurry while you're there!
Here's a little glimpse at some small batch dyeing! Last Christmas, we made Nana some of her favorite blend of our Angora/Merino yarn and this year she wanted to have a dyeing day to make fun colors with her yarns! Check out some of the batches we created!
