May 16

Well, we have everything together, just need to finish packing the car, get some food and off we go.

For those of you coming to the Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival, please stop by the Dyed in the Wool booth, browse around, buy something and introduce yourself.  I love putting faces with names.

What we will have in the booth this year are several types of fiber all ready to spin as follows:

Shetland lamb fleeces in black, gray and white

Shetland – double coated fleece in light gray

Lincoln – one black lamb fleece and two different shades of gray adult fleeces including a national champion fleece

East Fresian – black

Corriedale in several sades of gray, white, brown and a sweet caramel color.

Columbia – white – 1st place IN State Fair Winner

Jacob – blended to a lovely warm gray

Romney – medium gray

Cormo – two batches in top form, one of which is the 2012 Indiana State Fair Reserve Grand Champion

A lovely mixed-breed sheep named Charlotte with a dark brown color

Bond in a nice brown

Texel – white – 2nd place 2011 KY Sheep & Fiber Festival winner

Also, we will have some blended batts in several colors and types of wool – a couple have silk blended in – and some balls of yarn that are naturally dyed in wool and silk.

We will have as many tie-dyed items as you can imagine.  There are shirts, of course, but we also have lots of baby onsies, burp cloths, socks from 0-3 months all the way up to men’s sizes, towels, table cloth, purses, tote bags, draw-string bags, hats, sports bras, PJ’s, tank tops, boxer shorts, panties (sizes 7-9), aprons, scrunchies, shoe strings, and several items with part of the proceeds going to breast cancer research.  Also, if you don’t see something you want whether it be in your size or in the colors you want, or just something that is cotton that we don’t carry, we do custom orders and can easily make it for you.

And, of course, we will have a Fiber Binder Club binder there with examples of what club members get as well as examples of what can be done with each month’s package for you to look at.  We will be accepting new members as well as taking renewals for those members wishing to continue receiving monthly natural fibers to test and play with.  Since we are getting ready to ship out the 30th sample, there are lots and lots of fibers to be explored.  Remember, if you are a new member, you start with month 1 so you don’t miss out on any of the lovely fibers and can get the same as those who have been members since the beginning.

We are so looking forward to seeing all of you!!!
