Starcroft Mill Monday

         FOG ready on the spinner. 
         Let the bobbin filling begin. 

      ...and at the other end of the mill... 
For the past several years we have been working on improving the breeding on one of the islands to produce natural colored fleeces. Last year was our first clip of beautiful dark brown fleeces.  I just finished skirting all the fleeces and washing will commence this week in preparation for a NEW yarn in the works for release early this summer!
