Silk, angora, and dye soppers

Some Jacob that I have offered to someone. Again I needed a place to put a pic!

This is the Jacobs that I have left. Its pretty much all white, as the
brown went already. This Jacob seems to have 2 distinct types a
crimpier and a smoother. Let me know what you think.

Better Fabric Pictures with sizes

5 Sun sets, 2 each of the wolf and snow man panels

These are all fat quarters

At least a yard

These are all half a yard

These are more than half but less than a yard

These are a quarter yard

Some fabric I have for trade or sell

I just got really burnt out on sewing. I also had several personal issues come up and I just have not been able to bring myself back to my sewing. I had even thought about offering up the precuts with instructions for a DIY project I just have not done it yet. Let me tell you what I do have. 4.20 yards of 58-60" Pul uncut just off the roll. I also have many pounds of fabrics. Mostly fashion prints, some in fat quarters, some yards, some cut into sandwich bag size, some half sewn. To be honest the velcro is the bane of my issues with sewing. I hate it with a passion. I also have some velcro strips that I have precut to fit my bags.

I am focusing on my wool, spinning, and felting business presently.

Here are the pictures of some of my fabric, all the precuts are in the first 2 pictures . Some of them are sewn a bit, some not at all, some have liners sewn just not put togther yet. The next 2 pictures are of one of the tubs full of fabric, the last is the PUL I had to take it off the roll to measure it.I also have 3 or 4 yards of plain muslin as well. Let me know what you are interested in.

I have been carding, carding, carding..

I have been turning all of the mill ends into small batts for mixing because its easier to work with the fiber that way for me. I also have some more dyeing planned. Next though I think I will wash up some more fiber. I think the llama will be next as I traded some of that today in the high speed swap. since I have to find it anyway might as well prep and wash it for batt making!
