Spinning for Feral Beginners

And the fibre keeps coming!
Check out Aboundingful Farm -- Ellen Hanson Anderson - Shepherdess and Spinner, and breeder of the most beautiful Angora Rabbits you've ever seen! My sister, Beth, bought Angel from Ellen. And yes, since the photo was taken, Angel has had a haircut! Ellen breeds Icelandic and Jacob sheep and keeps angora goats too. Her kid mohair is spinning heaven.
Look out for Nancy and Lili Weik's Overlook Manor Farm -- home of fabulous Cormo and Border Leicesters. And they breed gorgeous guard dogs too! And you know I'm loving that.
Both of these farms are happy to email you with information on which fibres are in stock. Look for them at the fibre festivals too. Be sure to tell 'em Melissa from SIOz says hello.
