Einstein = New Age Rick Rack
Wouldn't you know a sweet little goat would be involved in this incredible fun yarn. Einstein is Eva's baby from this year and boy what a boy he is. After giving him his first hair combing about a month ago I washed it in my organic soap that I make here.. Well, I must say I sure raise so fantastic goats. His fiber is so luscious and creamy to the touch. I admit it - I LOVE MY GOATS. Well then I went to work in blending his fiber with Mary's fiber - a little Merino lamb from my girl friends flock. Spun it into a varied spaced yarn and finished it off with plying it with some of my mill spun Mohair Boulce from my goats. The final result is my way of looking at rick rack - another item I love to work with.
So what do you think of my New Age Rick Rack??? I would love to hear or read your thoughts. You also can get yourself some of this dreamy yarn at my Etsy shop... Shameless plug but Einstein would appreciate your support - he is a growing and eating boy...
