Earrings in three colors now! Check out those new icy blue angora/silk ones. Pink is temporarily sold out, I'm waiting for more metal parts to arrive. Gray is almost sold out. I am planning to list these on Etsy later this week, but if you want one now, message me! They are $15+$5 shipping.

I finally grew some decent sized onions!! Probably from rabbit poop+fencing the garden to keep the dog out+cutting down a big tree near the garden. After they dry for a few weeks, I will braid them and hang them up in my pantry, or chop and freeze if they don't look like they will last at room temperature. I pulled up a couple garlic bulbs but I think I'll wait a few more weeks for the rest. Next in this bed will be sweet potatoes if I can find them. Or maybe pumpkins.

Soft and silky yarn from angora blended with sari silk. This yarn will become tassel earrings. The angora came from Jupiter the giant angora. He is like a huge, mellow, marshmallow. One of my favorite rabbits to cuddle. #angorarabbit #angorayarn #fiberfarm #fiberartistsofinstagram #handspunyarn #yarnlover #yarnaddict #luxuryyarn

I finally pruned and clipped up the tomatoes. It was almost the point of no return for some of the plants. 😬

Watching animals mother their babies well is always inspiring. Cypress has been a great mom. As a mom myself, I see her body change and her life change, new instincts show up, personal space disappear, and I wonder what she thinks of it all, if she has thoughts that I have had, or if it's different for her. This is the first mother's day that I've thought about all our animal friends who mother our beloved pets, our food, and our wildlife. What a huge, lifegiving feat. #fiberfarm #angorarabbit

This yarn glows. This is some of what I spun at the past two festivals. 50/50 satin angora (from Walnut my blue eyed boy 🥰) and suri llama. Imagine if I dyed this!!! It is very soft and fuzzy. A bit overspun even after finishing, but hopefully I can fix that. Best part is, I can make more of this. As soon as Walnut grows his coat. #fiberfarm #fiberartistsofinstagram #handspunyarn #handspinner #angorarabbit #angorafiber #naturalfiber #surillama #llamafiber #llamayarn #angorayarn

My pretty chestnut agouti doe, Magnolia. She is my favorite angora color. Magnolia had a spa day today. It takes work to look this good. She will get a haircut in a month or so. #angorarabbit #fiberfarm #fiberartistsofinstagram #naturalfiber #angorafiber #farmtime

Folk Life Day was so fun, probably the best event I've ever been to! Everyone was so friendly and I almost sold out of drop spindle kits! Hopefully I converted some new spinners!

Our six babies. 1. I love the color. Black Tort. 2. Black, just like its' mama. 3. Blue? So pretty. Kids named it Hippo. 4. Sunshine. So pretty. Black tort I think. 5. This one is insane. Probably going to freezer camp 😬. 6. This one is super sweet and mellow. #fiberfarm

Another new thing: I made a suri llama/angora batt like @speckledsunfiber_co inspired me to do. I used my softest bunny fiber, Walnut the satin angora. (His babies are available!) It is sooo soft! And some incredibly soft, buttery suri llama fiber from a friend's destash. I spun a single again, it's so soft and silky, with rustic lumps and curls. Love it. Walnut, grow that fiber faster! @doublebbfarms you must try this blend someday!!

Trying some new things. One of them is this mohair batt with a bit of pink bamboo and sari silk waste.I sampled a single. I wanted fuzz and halo. Looks amazing and so I'm going to make a lot. Lovely sparkly mohair from @steelspoonfarm

My latest spin is a blend of pink, green, orange, and white. I spun two different singles (one had green, one had orange) and then plied them together. #handspunyarn #handspinning #handspinner #fiberartistsofinstagram #fiberfarm #naturaldyeing #naturalfiber

Thank you to everyone who came out today and to Willow Oak Farm and Fiber for being a great teacher 🤩 The llamas are really settling in and letting those that want to, feed them 🦙🥰 This is HUGE and means they are trusting us 😍❤️ The kids( the goat ones) were a pain in the “a” double crooked letter 🐐🙄 King wanted to come in so bad. #guardiandog #greatpyrenees Alethea offers private lessons if you ever want to learn how to make yarn 🧶 She also has a @youtube channel so go check her out 👍 We’ll be looking at offering more classes in the spring when we’re harvesting our own fibers 🐑🦙🐇 * * #doublebbfarms #llama #llamasofinstagram #spinning #spinningyarn #fibers #naturalfibers
Check it out!
As you know nothing goes to waste @doublebbfarms 🦙🐑 We’ve teamed up with Willow Oak Farm and Fiber to learn some new skills. I thought knitting was cool but it’s not as cool as making your own yarn 🧶 Aleatha Shannon will be teaching the kids during fall farm camp and we will also be offering an Adult Class on November 7 at 3pm. I’m so excited 😆 Who would also be interested in beginners knitting? I’ll be releasing full class details soon 🤩 * * #doublebbfarms #spinning #spinngyarn #yarn #knitting #naturalfibers #fleece #wool #llama
