Fiber CSA Send Off…YAY!!

In the last week, the studio has been taken over by boxes of fiber arriving from the mill.  I’m not complaining — anything fiber is a good thing!  It’s been fun weighing the roving and packing it into bags for our shareholders.  The yarn shares took far less time to label and pack  but were equally as fun to do.  All I can say is YUM!  I’m so excited to be sending off our first CSA shares and am so very grateful to all who took the plunge in our first year!  Here’s a peek…

Don't want to spoil the surprise but...

yarn and roving for CSA shareholdrers

  • Wow Pam! That’s an impressive array. It’s pretty cool to see it all in one place like that! You and the sheep done good work together :*)

  • I’m looking forward to plunging my hands into all of that yummy roving when my box arrives. Maybe next year you could offer a combo-CSA, where participants would get some roving and some skeins of yarn. Or is this too confusing to have to pack up at the end of the season? I’d certainly go for a combo-CSA.

  • Oh, yummy! My roving just got here (Wednesday). Four different colors. I can’t wait to start spinning it up. I’ve opened the plastic bags & will probably “decant” the roving into grocery bags so that it doesn’t sweat & mat in the plastic.

    Thanks! Nina. They really do such a great job and all I have to do is make sure they eat well. Love those woolies!!

    You’re welcome, Ilene! I know this is a very busy time for you at your own farm but I hope you’ll have a few minutes to enjoy the yarn when it arrives.

  • Pam

    I wish you didn’t have to wait so long, Caryl. I’m hoping you’ll have it by Friday.

  • Pam

    I tucked your “bonus skein” from the drawing into your box, Gillian. Hope you enjoy!

  • Pam

    You’re so welcome, Kelly. It’s fun to “hear” the excitement in your comment. I hope you have loads of fun with it!

    Great idea, Ruth — paper grocery bags! I’d forgotten about using them. We don’t see them much around here as the baggers at the store guard them with their lives. I’m not sure what they’re saving them for! And your idea about a mixed (yarn & fiber) CSA share is really interesting…hmmm. Will have to think about that. OR how about buying one of each and sharing with a friend?

    At our house Friday:
    John: (from upstairs) your Hatchtown box came.
    me: (hefting it in the kitchen) It’s pretty heavy.
    (opening the box)
    John: What’s that thumpting?

    Oh, Pam. Luscious. And with the blue roving I’ll learn to spin after canning season….no, Vicky, don’t drool on the yarn.

    🙂

    You’re happy with your yarn and I’m smiling from ear to ear! Thanks, Vicky! 🙂 ENJOY!
