I have created a new facebook page. Some of you who follow my blog have got invites. I decided since my blog doesn't get alot of traffic that I am going to use the facebook page of my farm instead and see how that works. Seems facebook has been very popular as I use it quite a bit. If you want to follow, the address is www.facebook.com/LivingWaterFarm.
See you there!!

Well I tried dyeing some of my angora again. I got a new dyeing fiber and yarn book and I just followed some instructions there-in. They instructed to soak the yarn in a vinegar-water mix and then squeeze out the water. Add the dye and heat. I spot-dyed this fiber and I think it turned out just like I wanted it to. I wanted to keep some of the grey but still have the blue. Can't wait to spin it! This is just a half ounce of Black Giant angora, compliments of Jan's Giants. I also dyed another half ounce and have it drying. I fluffed this up to get it dryed faster. Next post will be of the spun yarn. Cool huh??

the pink is 100% german angora that I dyed supposedly red. It turned out pink, dyeing 101 gone wrong but still turned out quite pretty. It is a varigated pink and white from where some of the angora didn't take the dye. Still awesome! Both these are available in my etsy store. There is a link to get there from my blog.
No photos of new bunnies because I still just got the one. She is doing well and is happy with her new house.
