A blog about farm life, spinning, my yarn dyeing, weaving and markets. I live with my husband on a small farm near Ballarat. I have sheep, mostly English Leicester as well as dogs, ducks, chooks and a cat.
For years I have hand spun my chunky merino yarn and measured in 50 metre hanks.
Recently I was asked for smaller lengths of yarn to use as highlights/contrasts.
So now I am listing on Etsy 25 metre hanks. As well as merino I am spinning some minis in English Leicester as well. These have been more popular than I expected. Soon I'll have some available at the Arts Centre Market.
Merino Chunky yarn I have spun and dyed. The weather is still cold and I am happy to be spinning most days.
Some yarn is for the Arts Centre Market in Melbourne and today I am listing yarns on my Etsy shop. At the end of last week I had dyed merino chunky I had wound into 25 metre mini hanks. The yarn dried over the weekend and now I'm photographing and listing.
