Approaching Panic Mode

Our breed registry, ACR, has a co-operative retail booth at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival and we’ve signed up to contribute product.  I’ve been washing assorted fleece for our “Flicking Kits.”

Each kit includes 6 ounces of clean locks of many natural colors, a little dog comb and instructions on how to flick and spin the locks.  This is such an easy way to make a randomly colored yarn and it’s fun, too!  Great for overdyeing, too…

I’m also taking some of our new notecards and a few Hatchtown spindle kits along with the usual roving and yarn.  I can’t wait to see all the goodies the other members are bringing!  This will be the ACR’s first experience in an outside space and the smaller size (10 X10) tent.  Nina and I are loaning the ACR our newly acquired EZ Up and Jim designed a really cool banner for us.

The ACR has a new banner!
