Lamb Watch

Estrella, my big Katmoget ewe came up with the flock to the night pasture, but didn’t eat.  She’s standing a little wide, and showing signs of being nervous, and  I can see some bag. These are great signs that lambs are on their way.  She’s a great mom, and has big healthy lambs.  I’m using the kitchen timer, and checking every half hour.  Fingers crossed for another healthy delivery.

First Day of Spring

Shearing Day!

Shearing Day!

Since today is the first day of Spring, this seems like an auspicious time to begin something totally new!  My vision for this website, is to create a virtual Farmer’s Market where local fiber producers and fiber consumers can connect.  Local for this site is defined as within 60 miles of Monterey Bay. We will be promoting the creation of clothing and other items made with natural materials, and dyes, through education.
