Misty from Desired Haven Farm, sent several 1 ounce balls of roving for all you hand spinners to try! The blue ones are dyed by Misty, and are made up of "thrummings" which are all of the bits left over from various fiber projects were saved and sent to the mill for processing. The result is quite interesting and would be fun to experiment with! This fiber may need a bit more processing to suit some as it may have some vegetable matter in it, but this just means it's the real deal!
Misty of Desired Haven also spins some lovely 100% angora rabbit yarn, which I had the pleasure of purchasing a little while ago. Misty cares for several English angora rabbits and meticulously harvests their fur every 90 days or so! Try finding 100% angora yarn and see who pops up... Misty is one of the very few! The white angora yarn I purchased from her will be knitted into a special gift this holiday- any suggestions on what I should make with it, would be also appreciated!
Misty would like to give 2 of her 1 oz samples that she sent in, to 1 lucky commenter! Just visit Desired Haven Farm, find something you like and write about it in the comments section below. Make sure you leave some way for me to get back with you when we draw names, and as always linking to the blogpost or blogging about this contest will net you a second entry!
