Great video!! Yay! to Sheila for trying the wheel. This is one of my favorite festivals, although I didn't go this year. I've got several Into The Whirled fibers and they spin wonderfully. Rambouillett is one of my favorite fibers. I look forward to seeing the next episode.

I almost forgot. Sheila, check the label on your fiber from A Touch of Twist. If it just says "wool" most of their stuff is a Rambo or Rambo blend.

Thanks for the comments, Debbie! Into the Whirled is probably going to become my next sock yarn addiction - her colors are so beautiful. I'm excited to try out my Rambouillett from Gnomespun, but I still have about 4.25 ounces left from the first batt I bought from him at Rhinebeck.

Wendy, your kids are adorable!
Great video that introduced me to dyers I haven't heard of before.

suezeeknits, you'd better tell Sean from His and Hers that! I'm not going to voodoo doll any cute Canucks.

Elena, thanks! You have to check out their websites, these dyers were so awesome.

Ladies, your awesome! It was SO cool to not only have the pleasure of meeting you but to be interviewed as well - hands down the coolest moment in my dyeing career! Thank You very much!!
