Yarn Bales, oh beautiful Yarn Bales. Too bad they take so much time and energy to make.

We tried this once before. After this second round, we have decided that these Bales are just too much for us, so, unfortunately, they will probably never be seen again.

Here are some photos of this round. Enjoy!

Burnt Oasis, handwoven table runner by Sarah Garcia, 16”x31”, Churro wool on wool warp

To see what this series is all about, click here.

Notes on this piece…

“I’m a new weaver, and this piece required a lot of invention and adapting as certain colors were used up more quickly than I expected. For some reason I found that melon color infinitely interesting – changing dramatically depending what it snuggled up to, but after starting, I realized I didn’t have the extra skein I thought I had. My daughter named this piece Burnt Oasis (and it’s hers) but it could have been called Adaptation.” – Sarah Garcia

Enjoy!

Here is another “sheepy” Daily Dose for you!

A skilled sheep shearer doing their job is truly a beautiful sight to behold!

The shearer works fast, the sheep is calm and the (usable) fleece comes off in one perfect piece.

We hope you enjoy this video of Trinidad (the sheep) being shorn!

As our celebration of the anniversary of The Churro Club winds down (not to worry, there are still several more textiles to come!), we want to share a little of what inspires us to do what we do. So, over the next few days we are going to share, well, the sheep and the process!

It would take a month straight (or maybe a year) of Daily Doses to truly share the beauty of what goes on behind the scenes, from sheep to yarn to textile. But we want to give you a taste of one of the many things that inspire us to promote this beautiful fiber… the Churro sheep themselves!

This is a short video shot during a recent shearing. Though I have crossed paths with many a sheep in my day, they never cease to amaze me. Each has such a personality and, while gazing at a flock, one can’t help but think of sinking their fingers into these beautiful fleeces.

So, here you go! These are some or the amazing Churro that make it into our Medium Weight Churro Yarn and our Churro Club boxes.

Enjoy!
