Frozen Fog and Angora Fluffs
Well, the girls have shorn the rabbits and put a good stash of Angora wool away for the next batch of grey and white yarns. I think that our rabbits certainly enjoy having their new easy-care do's. We just had a frozen fog which I never knew existed until last night - gorgeous! The ground is lovely white outside now, and the bunnies are all snug and warm with no reason to worry. I love how their wool combines with the Cormo and Finnsheep! Perhaps we'll try combining this with CVM also this coming year. Has anyone every tried this combo? So far, I've loved every angora yarn that we have had come back from the mill. The Finn Angora is so soft and with a blue sheen, while the Cormo is just so cottony and squishy. Winter certainly has its perks when it comes to enjoying halos of yarn! And apparently Easter is not the only time for enjoying bunnies!!!

This blog chronicles our very full life here on WoodSong Farm. We will share everything from dog to sheep stories, unique wooly works, to animal husbandry tips we pick up along the way. I hope this helps to give you an idea of what our extended farm family and wooly projects are like, and that we may somehow benefit everyone who reads about our journey.
