Well I haven't posted in an absurdly long time. I can't believe how quickly every has gone.

The rabbits are doing well. I have cut back on the breeding as the costs of feed and hay are just simply expensive. They are so sweet when they demand attention. I relax just by walking into their hutch.

I added some fibers from Peace of Yarn, baby suri, baby camel and and baby alpaca. They are so just want to roll in it....those who work with fiber understand what I am talking about.

I also found a source for pulled, carded sari silk. Hopefully I will have that in stock in the next month or so.

I've been wanting to try Gotland for a long time. I wanted a raw fleece to start with. I finally found one and am working on that now. It is all washed and I am in the process of flicking the ends. For any non-spinners reading this that means I am taking each lock of fiber and brushing each end. It opens the lock up and creates a fluffy end.

My main business is going well. Spinning pet fibers is keeping me very busy. I had to extend my turn around time as I do need some down time to spin for myself. I have been ramping up my equipment to help keep up with demand. I finally bought a Patrick Green SuperCarder electric drum carder. I really wish I had done this earlier. It is saving my shoulder from a lot of wear and tear. I am really pleased with it and the results it produces.
