If I were a fiber-producing animal like a pygora goat, I think I would want to live on Natchwoolie's family farm! Natchwoolie specializes in natural, luxury fibers from a no-kill, eco-conscious mixed herd of fine fleeced friends.
Natchwoolie has sent in an absolute treat for all of you handspinners! A lofty blend of 70% Mohair and 30% wool in their natural winter white called "Heaven Sent". The samples looks and feels as if it will float away! I am guessing this blend would make a really nice thinner handspun with a fuzzy halo. Sometimes, when I fondle the commercial mohair yarns, I think "itchy". This fiber sample is so soft!!! I would LOVE to see what a more experienced spinner can do with this! Because you are going to want to buy more when you get this in your box, a generous 20% rebate coupon was included with the sample! Squee! If anyone wants to buy me a 12 month subscription to one of Natchwoolie's many fiber clubs, I'll let you. Ahem... Marcus... oh camera boy... are you listening? A diet high in fiber is good for you, so I think the "Take out" club will suit me just fine. *wink*Natchwoolie is one of the fewer online fiber farms that sell fiber in the grease! Love it! Spinning in the grease will really soften your hands- try it sometime! It makes interesting yarn too- I read on someone's blog- Island Sweet? That they used to buy socks that were made of yarn spun in the grease.
There is so much to talk about in Natchwoolie's shop- but we're having a giveaway so I suppose I'll let some of you coo over the goodies too ;) Natchwoolie is giving away a heavenly 4oz of this frosty winter white Mohair and wool blend!!!!
