What I've been up to lately
I have 2 BIG boxes of fleece sorted and ready to mail to Stonehedge for them to spin into yarn, and several pounds of locks to wash and dye. 9 more fleeces to go, which will be used for 2 different rovings. One I may dye orange and blend with hot pink alpaca and some yellow(dyed) angora. The other, I'm thinking of dyeing "Teddy Bear" brown, and blending with some angora dyed in orange/yellow/olive.
But something else may pop into my head as I sit and skirt.

Pearl Satin Angora - 60 yards $15 Chestnut Satin Angora - 46 yards $11.50 Red Satin Angora - 51 yards $13
Tie the skein in 4 different places so that it does not get tangled during the dyeing and rinsing process. Be sure to leave it loose so...
