What a fantastic start to 2023. Since March I’ve met so many new fiber people. It has been incredibly nice to meet each of you, hear about your fiber spinning and processes, and share a little bit of Fiber Fate with you. We met at Bandera Fiber & Arts Festival, Farm to Needle, Yellow Rose and Wimberley Market Days. I am looking forward to keeping in touch and meeting more of you fiber lovers and makers throughout the year. Thank you for all the encouragement and inspiration!
Creating more opportunities for us to meet. I am very excited for all the shows and teaching I’ve been able to participate in this year. I’ll be at Houston Fiber Festival for the first time in June. Head to Kerrville for Texas Fleece & Fiber Festival (previously Kid n’ Ewe) in October. I will be announcing and posting about a few other opportunities as plans solidify. And don’t forget, there’s always Wimberley Market Days the 1st Saturday of each month (July is iffy at this point). Check-in at my Shopping/Events page to see current details on where we can meet in person.
Fiber Fate Shop Announcements:
As of March, I am an official member of The Livestock Conservancy. Currently I have 2 handspun yarns (Leicester Longwool) and several commercially processed fibers (Shetland, Jacob, Black Welsh Mountain) available and ready that will fulfill passport requirements. Behind the scene, I have four types of fleece being hand processed for upcoming fiber and yarn sales (Teeswater, Jacob, Shetland, and Churro).
In April, I became a proud supplier of Eucalan wool & laundry delicate wash. I have been using Eucalan regularly for well over 10 years. As you can imagine, with the creation of Fiber Fate a few years ago, it has been an especially useful tool in the production of my yarns. I use it on all my handspun and hand dyed yarns in the finishing stage. I’ll have that available online very soon. Feel free to contact me directly via email if you are in dire need. I’m happy to deliver locally, and pop it in the mail otherwise.
See you soon!
It’s been a really nice year in my fiber world. 2022 was filled with meeting people that love yarn, love wool, love spinning, want to love spinning, and love making with yarn. Thank you so much to everyone who took a few minutes to glance at my yarn work. Especially thanks to those of you who took a chance and purchased my handspun and hand dyed yarn.
It is truly my pleasure to work with wool and make lovely yarns. Then, to see those yarns go out into the world and be appreciated and transformed into functional, beautiful, long lasting, things… brings me a tremendous amount of joy. I look forward to sharing lots more with you in 2023. Let’s keep talking about spinning and yarn and making.
