March Yarn Raffle On the Loose!!

Here we go! The sheep have been busy, or should I say my dear friends have been busiest??? This raffle for March includes yarn that is beyond special--several skeins have been donated by my dear friends James & Carolyn--my long distance spinning buddies! My collective 'soul'! ha!

It is incredibly fun to spin 'with' them-- we spin up single ply surprise yarn, send it to each other and then ply it with our own plies, send half the yarn back to the original spinner--way way too fun! You never know what will arrive at your door--from Michigan OR Virginia! James is my partner in crime for our Franken Yarns featured on the site and Carolyn and I are Peas in a Pod yarn--check out our yarn pages for more yarn created collectively too!

Ok, fleecey brain back to the raffle! Skeins included are: 200+ yards (2 skeins) Franken Yarn 2 ply--spun solely by James; 143 yards 2ply Peas in a Pod yarn spun by moui & Carolyn; and 1 skein of two ply sassy yarn I spun from Corriedale wool (from our shearer David the wonderful's sheep) and a ply of novelty yarn, beads and flowers! And of course no outfit would be complete with out a pretty sparkly vintage pin!

More complete pictures are posted on the site so be sure to take a look at what we have waiting for you there!!! We will also be posting a second raffle for you spinners and felters by tomorrow evening--including for sure a pound of naturally colored North Country Cheviot wool from our own little Casey and mucho more unwashed and carded fiber for you to create with! Keep an eye out and thank you again--we truly appreciate each and every one of you--our total Friends of the Homestead fund includes $172 at this point--the sheep are SO proud!
