Down the Rabbit Hole…   This is a saying among us fiber people. I didn’t even know I was a fiber person until about three years ago when I bought three worm resistant sheep for the dairy goats my son needed because cow’s milk didn’t agree with him. Since Gulf Coast Native Sheep have to be sheared I was determined to find out what people who bought fiber wanted, especially after reading a bad review on wool on Etsy. In order to find what fiber people want I learned to crochet, spin, weave, needle felt, wet felt and I invested in a picker and carder to clean, pick, and card batts of fiber. In addition to a full Pinterest, piles of books, and requests from family, I am working my way through my “Shave’em to Save’em” passport. Attending Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta was a big part of my growth in fiber. With all the different vendors I was able to touch endless amounts of fiber, see all the ways to use it in daily life, and talk to other shepherds. This only inspired me to want to do more with fiber. As I traveled down this road I found the opportunity to take over Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta and I am very excited to keep bringing people together for the fiber experience.
