BLANKETS are coming!!
After much thought & consideration, I have decided to have woven blankets made. I have carefully selected fleeces from the flock for these functional works of art.
Darby, our wonderful Romney ewe whose fleece seems to become more beautiful each year.
Sinead, the leader, a Romney X Borderleicester. Both of these ewes have natural colored fleeces in shades of grey--gorgeous.
For the contrasting color of white, Bo-an's fleece was chosen. She is a Teeswater X Romney.
The fleeces have been delivered to the Battenkill Fiber Milll where they will be processed into yarn and then woven into blankets.
I considered several designs and chose a diamond pattern to showcase the wool and stylishly keep you warm.
The yarn will be woven by a weaver that works closely with Battenkill into blankets measuring 52" X 72". It will take a few months before I receive the finished product--I am so excited!!
Stay tuned for updates on their progress. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested n reserving one of these wool blankets.
