We have lots of leftovers from the Romney we spun for the shawl. Sylvia has purchased another Romney fleece, in brown/black this time. It will be washed and picked, and then in January she will give out portions of it to Guild members who are willing to spin singles. Norma has volunteered to ply the singles into thread, which will then be used as warp for next yearÂs shawl.
Cheryl and Sylvia will dye the remaining white fleece to be spun and used as weft at next year's fair. Then we will really be weaving an entirely handspun product. Anyone who is interested in spinning singles, please contact Sylvia at SALeidigATsbcglobalDOTnet.Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Sheep to Shawl! See you next year.
