Thanks, jexxican. I always admire your stuff over on the spinning board!
TkRainy: I dye and spin the wool all myself. There's a farm near me that raises llamas and Shetland sheep, and I get their fleece right from the source (though I order some other types of fiber from elsewhere, occasionally). The process is pretty involved, with washing, dyeing, and carding--but it's also super rewarding. I want sheep someday myself!
