Recently I had the fun opportunity to attend the Valley Ford Wool Festival, put on by the Valley Ford Mercantile and Fibershed, of which Brookfarm is a member. A group of like-minded ladies from my Sonoma spinning/knit group made the trip over to Valley Ford and enjoyed the open air event, mill tour, shopping, and lunch at Oyster Rockefellers. And guess what followed me home -- some beautiful hand-dyed rovings, buttons, and a pair of earrings. Not to mention laughter and tactile fun.
And if you are one who ask, "Why would you ever use fiber other than alpaca?" with almost a look of disgust and amazement. Well, in answer, I say, "Because I need to support other farms, like-minded artisans, and test other fibers."
The fact is I love all the beautiful colors and love playing with it too, in addition to my gorgeous natural-color alpaca fibers.
AND now the Cardiomyopathy warrior!!!
