Dyed with rhubarb leaves. White and grey yarn. Some put in salmiac afterward one got a bath with a rusty horseshoe. Gives an exciting variation.
We have now taken our sheep to the mountains for the summer. They will stay there until the beginning of September when we get them home again.
The last couple of weeks I have been to knit festivals introducing my products. I have also been at a seminar where I learned to make felted slippers. It was all so great. In the meantime, my machines keep on making beautiful soft wool yarn for my local farmers and my self because the yarn keeps on selling 🙂
No Easter bunny on this farm, just newborn triplets by Leið (Path).
The Waldorf doll, Álfbjörg the fairy, came to us yesterday. She is handmade by Brúðusmiðjan. Stuffed with wool from our sheep, the hair is locks from one of our black sheep (Hrefna) and the clothes are knitted with hulduband - as is her hair accessories.
Álfbjörg is going to spend her days at our loft, observing.
