When we were out East last month, we spent time in Vermont seeing the sites, which of course had to include at least one fiber related visit. That was a visit to Fiber Kingdom. And of course purchases were mandatory.
First 2 oz of Angora. I have not spun angora by itself, so this will be interesting.
Then, 2 skeins of sock yarn, 50% angora, 30% wool, 20% nylon. That beautiful natural color.
Lastly, she had these machine knit socks, from the same yarn that I purchased above. The machine knits much denser than I, although I will include some great patterning.
It surprised me as to the cost. $20 for angora fiber, 2 oz; $45 for 2 skeins of sock yarn, 4 oz; and lastly the knitted up socks $25. How is this pricing working in reverse?
She had a really cool workshop in an old barn. If I lived nearby, I know that I would be spending lots of time there–knitting, spinning and weaving.
