Mini Hanks

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.

Spinning and Dyeing

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.

Baking Bread

When I have the time I like to bake our bread.  This loaf was delicious.  I used mostly spelt flour.

More Frosts

We have continued  frosty mornings throughout August.
The sheep never forget to arrive in the same spot each morning for hay.

This one always has food on its face.
Some of the sheep are quite old now but still doing really well.  The sheep are shorn in summer as they need a good fleece to keep them warm in winter.
