This is what I am doing as a producer to help make fiber artist particiant’s lives easier:

You may have noticed the new fancy “Official Fiber Provider” banner on my homeage and on a few of my homegrown rare wool products. This is to help buyers participating in the Shave ‘em to Save ‘em program to easily identify what they need. Also of use for customers, although probably unnecessary, is using search tags in the search bar such as se2se, Livestock Conservancy, and Rare Wool.

Currently for sale, are raw fleece, washed locks, and dyed locks.

For those who don’t know, #SE2SE is the official hashtag for producers and participants of this program.

All other wool has been dropped off at The Wool Mill in Belgrade, MT to be turned into yarn and roving. I will have natural colors in both white and colored options, and of course even some dyed options! If you haven’t seen her work her magic, you’re missing out. You could say I am pretty excited!

My wool should come back just in time for the Kalispell Farmer’s Market and several summer Fiber Fests. I haven’t quite firmed up plans for those, simply because, well, it’s a lot of up front money to hurry up and wait for… and well, let’s just say I just found my self in the same dilemma with my wool. Hurry up and wait (but OH! It WILL be worth it!). Speaking of hurry up and wait, lambing season begins Feb. 15th this year. Not to mention a heifer of my uncle’s that is teasing us with promises of a “someday” calf…we keep saying it could be any day now! If their could be anything more accurate about farming of any sort it’s that sometimes it seems to be a lot of staring at the backside of animals (and crops for that matter) , and, you guessed it, hurry up and wait!

Happy February everyone!
