Thanks to Kathy Vogeltanz for her contribution this week, and especially for taking the trouble to record it. And a big thank you to everyone else who has contributed to the show throughout this series with writing or recording or just with encouragenent. Sorry this show is a bit late, I fell asleep listening to myself when I was editing it – I’m hoping the same doesn’t happen to you.

I’m sure that you know to replace the at with AT with @ and DOT with . but maybe the spam bots won’t.

  1. I happen to have 2 alpacas one fawn and one black. They are very cute and their fiber is to dye for. LOL No real washing nessesary but a shake, rinse, and spin away.
    I still need wool though. The greatest seems to be corridale alpaca blend at 10 wool/90 alpaca.
    Don’t sweat getting back to me, I’m fine just sending you something. Have a good break.

  3. Thanks for the shout out David, we really hope you can make it on Sunday!

    A friend and I have been cataloguing the exhibits all day today, there’s such a huge variety to see. The local paper even came and took some photos.

    We’re really excited about it.

  5. I’m sure I speak for all your dedicated listeners
    when I say all those interviews you’ve got
    lined up will be fabulous! It really is a breath
    of fresh air to hear about wool and all from
    your neck of the woods. We appreciate your
    dedication and hard work to keep these shows
    coming to us!
