I took 58 lbs. of white alapca fiber to the mill on Saturday, and I expect to get some 40 of it back as white roving.
The rest of it, moslty 2nds that won't make nice roving, will be blended with wool and sent through a felting machine. This will be perfect for making super-warm, luxury quilt batting. It will be white, so it can be used with any quilt material and won't show through.
This should all be available in April. I'll be sure to announce when I pick it up from the mill.
Thank you to all of those who voted in our poll on Facebook and here on the blog. Your opinions really matter to me.
