Playing catch up, over and over again…

There are things that happen in life, things you have no control over.  While some people may argue this has nothing to do with my business or this 52 Weeks of Sheep adventure, I disagree.  When something happens in your life to someone who…

Week 8 – A Little Columbia Lot of Fun!

Week 8 – Columbia   Officially two months into the 52 Weeks of Sheep adventure and I’m still loving every minute of it.  The breed study, washing, carding, spinning, plying, photo taking – I’m loving all of it.  The camaraderie between everyone on the…

Week 6 – Turning White Wool into Colorful Creations…

Week 6 – Romney This week’s breed was Romney – which I just LOVE!  Fortunately for me, I live close to, and am friends with a local ranch owner (Double A Ranch) that raises Targhee and Romney sheep.  I’ve attended their sheerings in the…

Week 5 – Not Quite As I’d Planned

Week 2 – Lincoln Longwool   Week two is now under my belt… and I have to admit, I was a little intimidated by this breed.  It’s a lot longer and coarser that what I generally spin, but the whole idea of this 52-week…

Wrapping up Week One…

One week down and 51 to go. To start my 52 Weeks of Sheep endeavor, I began with Alpaca.  I’m no stranger to Alpaca as it’s truly one of my favorite fibers to spin, but I was a stranger to Suri Alpaca.  Huayaca has…

Hello World!

Hello – and welcome to the wonderful world of a fiber addict! My name is Tammy, and I’m a self-proclaimed fiber addict (although anyone who knows me, would COMPLETELY agree). Little did I know when I saw a woman in small town, Lincoln, MT a…
