Good to see you're taking a vacation from all that fiber work you've been doing for your business. ;)


wowza! looks like the perfect vacation to me!!!! do you guys like beer? the beautiful drive to fort collins from boulder is not too far. the belgian brewery is there-you know fat tire. well eons ago when i lived in denver they had a great little tasting room-very fun. but this was before they got big and famous you might want to google them and make sure they are still there. have a blast!!!! too bad skyloom fibers isn't there in denver anymore-it was the best! have fun and i look forward to reading about your travels!


hi-me again-and if you are into beer-please check out the boulder brewing company for me-okay/ they have a killer IPA. thanks

Maia, Since you are in Colorado, if you have time you should stop off at Bijou Basin Ranch! We produce yak fibers and yarns and are about 1 hour SE of Denver. Give us a call at 303-601-7544 and arrange a visit.


You have a really great blog; I will be subscribing to it and checking back.

And thanks so much for the fine patterns, too.


Looks like you had a ton of fun. Wish I had been there too! I hope you'll keep having fun and sharing it.

(You know, no matter how often I tell the comment form to remember my info it never does... You'd think I'd learn to give up wouldn't you?)


Not sick of naturally colored fiber at all! I just scoured a gray fleece last night. I want charcoal gray, and it's lighter, but I may blend with some black alpaca. What do you think?

I'm jealous of all your fiber!
