Fiber Stash Enhancement

Here's what I bought at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend:
4 oz. Merino/Mohair blend (80/20). Freeport colorway. Hoping to spin a Schaeffer Anne type sock yarn.
4 oz Organic cotton, in three natural colors. Just a taste--I don't know what kind of yarn this will make!

100 % silk top. So much prettier in real life. I bought this from my favorite kind-of-Local Yarn Shop, Bahr Creek Llamas and Fiber Shop.

Coopworth/llama blend, dyed with cochneal. From Handspun by Stephania.

Corriedale/silk dyed with osage orange and indigo, I think. Also by Handspun by Stephania.

Had a great time with Kathy, met up with Elizabeth and her bright son, Owen, and ran into Christy and her mom. A very enjoyable day.

I'm rapidly approaching SABLE with the fiber!

Even prettier than I remembered. The fiber, that is. I had fun, too.

Wow, that is quite an acquisition you've got going there! I love those colors of the cotton especially.

I thought you got away empty-handed! Nice haul. You'll have fun.

Guh, that silk top. If I were closer to Cedar Grove, I'd have much less in my bank account...
