Last weekend at this time we were on our way to the Door County Shepard's Market at Whitefish Bay Farm. It is the most idyllic location. Deep woods across the road and acres of lush pasture surrounding this beautiful home and barn. Down the hill was a flock of jacketed corriedale sheep frolicking in the spring sun. Honestly, it was almost surreal. They even had chickens. Perhaps I was overcome by the pastoral setting or intoxicated by fiber fumes, but whatever the chosen excuse, I made an impulse purchase. One pound of rainbow dyed mohair locks. Look at them. Red, purple, turquoise, green....outrageous fortune of beauteous fiber. Soft and curly and.......I haven't the slightest clue what to do with them. Can I just carefully separate them and spin or ply them into another fiber? If cards or combs are needs, I have neither, but perhaps it is time to remedy that. Any and all suggestions are most welcome. I could probably be pretty happy just fondling them now and then, but the idea is to spin them into something funky. Help. Please.
Wishing you a restful Memorial Day weekend.
