Made With Wool from our sheep

 


These colorful Santas are designed and handmade by Christine Burt and Miriam Clark, mother and daughter. They are signed and numbered. Contact miriamclark@hotmail.com or by phone at 662-489-6456 in Pontotoc, MS.  She has an antique store in Pontotoc, MS called Antiques Downtown where she sells them.

 


These beautiful hats were made by Audrey Ziegler. She sells them on her Etsy shop--as Crafty Fiber Lady. http://www.etsy.com/shop/craftyfiberlady?ref=seller_info

It really amazed me how the curl of the Lincoln wool shows up and the detail she put into the flowers. When sending me the pictures Audrey said "The curls in the fleece escape when they are felted, making a unique texture that I think is unique to the Lincoln.  I really like the results." I certainly agree!

Hi Cory,

Here they are! gloves for my husband I knit and spun from velvets fleece. They are combed, worsted spun, 2ply the palms which i usually have to mend after about 4 months of use when I knit them from regular wool yarn much like a sock heel. the long strong fibers from your Lincoln fleeces are "wearing like iron",and look beautiful and lustrous with random subtle colors adding charecter.

Have a nice summer.J Jill

"I wanted to send you a couple pictures of one of my
Santas using your wonderful wool.  This is the extra
long wool from #811 I bought from you this spring.  I
have many other pictures of Santas with your wool, but
I liked this one because he really shows off your
wool."

Penny Thayer made this beautiful Cardigan Sweater Using Aerowin's fleece.

In her letter she said " Thanks so much for your care of this fleece. It was a pleasure to work with. The Cardigan uses Meg Swansons basic cardigan ideas, then I adapted her patterns to fit my needs. The cording dyed yarn is from "Paradise Fibers" . . ."
