Fiber Love

We just can't wait to get our hands into these bags of fibery goodness, received last week from Davis Ridge Fiber Farm & Mill in Nettie, West Virginia.  We met Jen and Brandon at the West Virginia Wild and Wooly Fiber Festival.   Arriving with our four large bags of fiber in tow, we were shepherdess/s on a mission.  We were thrilled to meet the Harden family, and equally thrilled that they are starting a fiber processing facility in West Virginia!  We sent our 'four bags full' back with them to be processed into roving, and, well, you can see the results above.
It is tough to concentrate on the holidays surrounded by all this lovely fiber; next week may well see some shepherdess/s hiding from the family to do some post-holiday spinning!


  1. Will you be selling these in your store?

  2. Oh, how lovely. The natural colors are beautiful!
    I can understand why it's hard for you to leave the wool fibers alone till after the holidays.
    Your farm is heavenly.

  3. so good to know there's a fiber processor next door, thanks!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. Michaele - Yes, we plan to list some of this in the store; probably after the first of the year.
