I was a student of Mary Andrews’, in the early 1970s.  With her help, I purchased this 1972 Cherryville loom, built of western red cedar.  I have no way of ever using it again, but am anxious to avoid seeing it as firewood – given all that we have been thru together.  Please use e-mail rliggat@teluslanet.net address to respond.

We have a small flock of Black Welsh Mountain Sheep.  We have just sheared them and I would like to share these beautiful fleeces with your association!  Most of the fleeces are dark dark black.  The rest of the other fleeces are very black with some reddish black on the tips called cuchddu. The wool is short, dense and firm to handle and ranges in Bradford count from 48s to 56s or micron ranges from 26.4 to 32.69. Fleece weights in the UK range from 2.2-5.5 pounds depending on the size of the ewe (general breed information - mine have not been graded but are purebred).  I rolled each fleece myself.  We skirted, and pulled any undesirables off of the fleece.  Overall the fleeces were impressively clean.  $40/fleece plus shipping.  I can send samples as necessary. Contact Kristen. or call 403-358-1674.(5/14)


Crochet Cotton I have inherited a huge amount of crochet cotton and know that one lady in Saskatoon used crochet cotton to lay the warp threads in her weaving. She also used colors for the weft making wonderful shawls, scarves and ribbons. I have cebelia colors, 20 and 30 lots of white in various sizes etc. Lots of variegated anchor and much more. A lot of these boxes contain 8-10 balls of each color. If you know of anyone who uses crochet cotton for other things as well I wonder if you could let me know. I do not have any room for this and need to find a home for it. I live in Camrose and can be contacted by email (rugratandfriends@shaw.ca) or you can call me at 780-666-1635.
