Everything Fiber

We've come a long way since 2009 when we brought home our first two goats Knit and Purl. Beautiful angora doelings only 5 months old. We've since increased our herd to 7 Angoras and 8 Dairy goats. Goats are wonderful animals and the care of our herd is my favorite part of fiber art. To the right is our newest doeling, Harriette born 3-6-2013.   

This is a list of posts that cover working with fiber. From shearing the goat to knitting with the finished yarn. Some of the titles without links are subjects that I need to cover in future posts. If you are interested in purchasing our fiber, roving or hand spun yarn visit our Etsy site Iron Oak Farm.

Is there a subject you would like me to cover? I will do my best! Email me questions at jenniferannmurphy@yahoo.com or visit our Facebook Page for daily updates with all our animals and projects!
