Happy Thanksgiving!

One last reminder - Baabaara's Wild & Wooly, Inc will be closed November 24th-28th to spend time with family.
New Products:
    Pencil Roving from Imperial Stock Ranch.  This roving may be used to knit soft garments or felt intricate designs into your projects.  This is a locally grown fiber from Columbia sheep raised on a sustainable ranch with a long history of doing it right.
    "The Intentional Spinner" by Judith MacKenzie McCuin.  This book is a must for spinners new and old (I measure by experience not age).  Not only does it educate in all things fiber with insightful pictures and vibrant history, it comes with an instructional DVD!
    Easy Felt Scarf Kit.  This wet felt kit is a great way to get your feet (or in this case hands) wet so to speak.  For those of us with little patience and time, both young and old can find success with this one.  Comes with 2 colors of Kool-Aid to dye your own finished scarf.
     New Needle Felt Kits from Kelly Riley.  If you missed out on Kelly's recent needle felting class, don't despair.  Her kits come with all you need to create whimsical sculptures.
Check out the new free patterns available on our website

Here are my two newest patterns: 

Thrummed Mittens

And the Burly Spun Vest

 Most materials for these patterns & projects are available through the website or by request via e-mail.
Still a few spots available in Liz's felt Christmas Stocking class December 4th 12-4pm and my wet felt Poinsettia class December 9th.  See website for details and more classes.
Don't want to go out in the cold?  Stay home and do your shopping from the comfort of your computer.  I've been working hard to get most products on the site for your convience.
Last but not least -A message from Shirly-
I have too many sheep--what's new.  I have a lovely colored Romney ram lamb for sale.  His 8-month fleece is 7" staple length, gray on the skin and reddish-brown on the tips.  By far the heaviest lamb fleece I've ever had.  I could also get rid of some bred Romney ewes, and maybe one of the NZ Romney ram lambs.  I don't have enough hay or room, so we could talk.  
Contact Shirley pager is 541 309 0710, e-mail is cell phone 541 598 5124
Hope to see ewe's soon!
