Ah, you beat me to it. I planned to let you know the contest results. All the shareholders/fans of MVFF are terribly disappointed. See http://www.ravelry.com/groups/mvff-csa-groupies where we all talk to eachother. 635 members now! But seeing Susan Gibbs noted on your blog takes a bit of the sting out. I knew you'd appreciate her endeavors.

I'll see if I can get my hands on a skein or two of yarn for you - the feel of the kid mohair/cormo blend is amazing as is the all cormo yarn. Soft Soft Soft!


Deb, Thank you so much for sharing MVFF with your readers. I am so impressed with what she is doing I will contact her about purchasing yarn. I love to know where my yarn came from - to know the sheep and know their names and have pictures makes it even more special.

I have more to say about MVFF and Susan Gibbs. She's obviously a woman with intelligence, nerve, and heart. Need to see if I can get the other post up before I leave in the morning for a working weekend--I have not been able to locate any wifi hotspots within 20 miles of where I'll be. . . .

Thanks for letting me know! I am thrilled with this concept and the way Susan is carrying it out. Having an idea is one thing. Pulling it off is another entirely. She's doing it all.

I think our local bison providers (meat and fibre) are looking at that sort of model: this year was very hard for them, as we had minimal moisture in May and June (usually our wettest months) and their haying was non-existent. Sadly, they have had to sell off their Scottish Highland cattle, and a large part of the breeding bison herd.
