It never ceases to amaze us the creations our customers are able to make with our products.
Below are some examples of the work they have completed.
Raylene at Inverleigh Farms Fiber Supplies not only has her own flock, specialising in coloured Perendales, but also helps to connect breeders of rare sheep with the internet community to help them offer their fleece for sale.
With her own flock, which she has been managing for over five years, Raylene takes a sustainable/permaculture approach to farming. As a spinner herself, she understands the importance of low vegetable matter in her pastures and therefore, her sheep fleece.
Raylene sells fleeces, hand carded batts and handspun yarn from rare breeds supplied locally and by other members of the Black and Coloured Sheep Breeders Association that don't do the "internet thing"
Raylene prefers to work on Facebook where she keeps up to date many new offerings in her "store". She says it allows her to talk to fiber enthusiasts, and exchange ideas and get feedback

NEW Hand Knitting Yarns from the Wangaratta Woollen Mills
We are proud to announce the launch of two new hand knitting yarns in a partnership between Australian Country Spinners, Cashmere Connections and Australian Alpaca and Merino wool growers.
The new yarns from Cleckheaton celebrate the two current market trends for hand knitters; there are those who want something Thick and Quick for their projects and for them Merino Max will meet the brief. Then there are other knitters who are looking for a more classic yarn, with an update, which in this case a soft brushed effect in a yarn called Merino Light and Airy 8 ply, both yarns a blend of Merino, Alpaca and acrylic. The soft pastel colour palette is flattering and the soft touch of the yarn makes it a pleasure to work with and a pleasure to wear.
These yarns have been launched in the March and April issues of Better Homes and Gardens and are available at Local yarn stores as well as selected Lincraft and Spotlight Stores.
