I winced when I saw this Mother Fiber come out of the back of the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill trailer. It's a big heavy on the chartreuse. I know the score - I probably ran out of dye in other colors and decided to turn this run in to the carding mill while I was at last spring's Maryland Sheep and Wool festival to save on shipping. I didn't think anyone would buy it, especially with so much competition from other quality fiber vendors, but it sold steadily through the day. I spun some of it on my wheel in the booth to show people what it will look like, and it seemed to work.
