Fiber Stuff

I have started going through my fiber stash, which is massive, in search of inspiration for projects or for sales.

I realize that I have a pounds and pounds and pounds of nice, washed mohair.  I need to package it and sell it.  I’ll likely dye a lot of it and sell it that way.

I also have some not so great mohair.  I will wash that and use it for the core of my wool (now mohair and wool) dryer balls.

I found several sheep fleeces – breed unknown.  I started washing one tonight, and it is the kind of thing I can do a bit at a time and let it soak while I’m doing other stuff … and the good wool I’ll use for nuno felting or needle felting, and the so-so wool I’ll use as the top for the wool dryer balls.

Oh, yes, I need to spin.  I have started some really pretty tailspun yarn using wool as the core, and dyed mohair for the tails.  I just need to finish that.

And I found several alpaca fleeces – one white, one brown, one black, that need washing and then decide what to do with them.

Once I get some of my current fiber stash whittled down and processed and sold, I want to buy some nice merino wool roving from dyeing.  I have a great resource for this, a lovely woman who markets a lot of different fibers.

I also need to find out how to get an official number of some sort, so I can buy at the wholesale level.

All of this while taking care of my precious goaties, horses, dogs, cats, etc., etc,. etc.!!
