Falkland wool is a merino cross that comes from the Falkland Islands. It is a squishy, soft spin with lots of bounce, and a longer staple length than merino. Falkland is my most consistent source of wool that is good for the sheep, the environment, and for us. The Falkland I buy does not have the chemical processing that is used in most commercially processed wool and so retains some lanolin and a bit of a sheepy smell when wet. Mmmm. Sheepy.
ALL FULL! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED :)
How does the club work?
1) What you get.
Each subscription to the fiber club lasts 3 months (in this instance, October-December). You get 4 oz of Falkland wool in an exclusive cosySpins colorway, hand dyed by me with Greener Shades Professional Acid Dyes. You may instead choose to get a double batch (8 oz). If I have left overs of the colorway, they will not make it into my shop until at least 6 months later.
2) Sign up!
I am offering this club to my blog readers first because there are only a limited number of spaces. To sign up for the club email me at cosymakes (at) gmail (dot) com with the following information and Falkland Fiber Club as the subject
*name and address
*paypal email (for billing) and how you would like to pay – or alternately agree to pay with a check for the full 3 months
*whether you would like a single or a double batch of fiber
*if you’d like to be on the waiting list if you don’t get in this round (i will note on this post when the club is full! if it doesn’t say anything when you email me, you’re most likely in.)
if there are any spaces left, i’ll put them up on etsy on monday.
