Sandy and I are down to the last few items to finish before we head to Lexington for the Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival on Friday. The lists we start out with at the beginning of each day are quite long, but surely and slowly, items are getting marked off. With the tie-dyed stuff all completed and packed, we are concentrating on the spinning fiber we are taking.
Right now, besides the bags of batts we have, we have 10 washed and prepared fleeces we are taking to sell off ounce by ounce (or pound by pound). One of the fleeces we are selling is from the 2010 Indiana State Fair Reserve Champion sheep, a Cormo named Monty. Others include four different Corriedales (all different colors), a Romney, two Lincoln/Suffolk crosses, a deep, black Fresian and a few other crosses – Really nice stuff!
So, if you are planning to come to the festival this weekend, please be sure to look us up. Also, while supplies last, we have a special goodie for those who come by on Sunday and wish Sandy a Happy 60th Birthday.
