Emily Estrada of FibreTown, follows up on her January 30, 2013 about Meduseld’s Jacob roving. She demonstrates the yarn and the wool hat that she has made out of the roving. You see it in this podcast:
Emily discusses an upcoming prize give-away she will have when she reaches 100 members. The prize will be Meduseld yarn. Sincere thanks to Emily for telling everyone about our farm!

Here’s her St. Valentine’s Day greeting…
We have added some more Romney roving to the store, as well as some 100 percent Romney in worsted weight. These are soft, shiny, 200 yard skeins that weigh 3.5 oz (approx 100g) each, and are priced at only $15.00 per skein. If you want to buy more than three skeins, please email and I will take off $1.50 per skein. Click on the Meduseld Farm Store link to the right.
A few weeks ago, I showed everyone how to dye wool using Cushing Perfection Dyes. One of the colors I used was a brilliant canary yellow, although they had it called “chartreuse.” I had visions in my head of carding it with an aquamarine that I had done last year, and I thought that triple plying those would create a beautiful, springlike effect. Well, no more….
Yes! My dog, Beowulf, had other ideas. He took the bag of fleece off the front porch and dragged it out into the yard to play with! Bad doggy!
Happy St. Valentine’s Day to everyone!
