A Trip to Ohio Valley Natural Fibers

Sweet Niece Sara spent a couple of weeks helping out on the farm. During her visit, Sara traveled to Ohio Valley Natural Fibers for the carding of the yearling fleeces. She posed here in front of the mill.

Inside the mill the lovely the fleeces were processed first by picking the fiber as you see here. This is Julianna's fleece. Julianna is the daughter of everyone's favorite sheep, Luna.

After the fleeces were picked the fiber was sent through this vintage carding machine and drawn by hand from the drums then carefully hand packed for our spinning pleasure!

It's always a joy to visit Ohio Valley and return with the HHR brimming with roving!
