It's beautiful, congratulations. I'm rather late in the game but did you tell what weight the yarn is? Is it a worsted weight? How many yards per hank?

Love it!!! We are getting ready to add Pygora goats to our fiber farm after the first of the year (along with all the angora rabbits we already have) I will be following to see how your CSA does! Maybe this is something we need to look into!

Mansfiels. It's 179 yards, 3-ply, and I am using size 5 or 6 needles on it to keep it tight, 7 makes a gorgeous lace, and such.

Renee, I will be keeping track of it all. I am realzing now what I need to charge, and this first year is a trial run, but even if I break dead even: I look at is as a loan in good faith from subscribers that helped by hay, lambing supplies, sheep, and grain, all the while promoting the farm and getting a sustainable product all over America.

So thank you for keeping up!

Amazing Jenna- congrats!
I'd love to try it out sometime. If anyone lucky enough to get in the CSA finds they have a couple skeins too many, drop me an email.
I agree with Renee- I am waiting to see how the CSA pans out for you, and the pig, as my husband and I get ready to ramp up our little homestead this spring. Would love a couple of Jacob sheep in the yard here!

Jenna- your packaging is very enticing, for all the right reasons. I like the somewhat nineteenth century font, and your layout, and your copy. The stuff should fly off the shelf in yarn shops all over the country. The only other suggestion I could make is to print them on recycled paper in biodegradable ink (and indicate that in tiny print on the label, too!).

Congratulations, it looks gorgeous. Do you plan to sell skeins out of whatever is left after you fulfill your CSAs?
