Fiber Twist

It didn’t just rain, it poured. But it was still awesome. Driving back country roads in New England in the fall to fondle fiber? It doesn’t get much better than that. Even in the crappy weather, the scenery was gorgeous.

Those are just two of the many angora goats at Keldaby Farm at the top of the page. Aren’t they cute? The elegant lady on the left is 16 years old and they left her coat on her to help her through the winter. Alas, the talk was of a trip to the local abbattoir rather than a Sweet 16 party. I went there to pick up some more socks. Moonshine Designs has the most amazing mohair socks. Soft, thick, and warm, warm warm. I also stopped by Foxfire at Springdelle Farm and Tregelley’s Fiber Farm. Springdelle had a shearing demonstration that was fascinating. Even the bus driver from the Yarn Safari trip was enthralled. Tregelley’s was great as usual. Anyone going on the farm tour tomorrow is in for a treat, the weather is supposed to be much better.

Yes, yarn was purchased, along with a few other items. I’ll try to get pictures and the details posted tomorrow. For now it’s back to the Revs and the Sox games.

  1. Glad you made it to the Twist! The rain was appalling, but then this is October in New England afterall. At least it wasn’t a blizzard…

    Did you stop by the Marketplace in Old Deerfield? I thought we had a great selection of vendors this year.

    I’m heading out to the farms/studios today myself. And yes, that was Miss Pixie in the lamb costume!

    Do I know you in real life?

  2. Even with the rain, sounds like a fun excursion.

  3. Sounds nice, makes me homesick! (lol, native Vermonter, new hampshirite by rights) I am so sorry i have been a tater at locating your email about the contest.
