Fiber Lottery

I went outside the studio this afternoon and discovered that the mailman had dropped off two large boxes from the mill. Since the fiber was sent well over a year and a half ago, I figured I had lost a bunch in processing. I felt like I had won the lottery. I had already paid for it, so I was already out the money. Since a portion of it was dyed, I am excited to see it back. Some is llama, some mohair, and the dyed is Rambouillet and some mohair.
All Rambouillet and the nicest of the batches - both in feel and color.

A real mix of fibers in this bag - mostly mohair.
All kid mohair that was dyed gold and purple with some teal thrown in. If it does not sell quickly, I plan to blend it in with other fibers.
Of course, I now have my carder, so I won't be needing the mill's services for a while. It is nice to know that they are honest, even though awfully slow!

The purple teal combo looks nice let me know when you spin it up and I will drive over and buy some.
