Several weeks ago I told you about the Bear Hair my cousin's son who henceforth shall be known as my personal rare fiber dealer, found in their back yard. Thank you all for your suggestions about how to incorporate it into some fiber-y goodness. I have much to think about. :-)
Today I want to show you what my personal rare fiber dealer found near the river...
1/8 ounce (~4g) of Black Bear Down. :-)
So now I have a small amount of Bear Hair and a small amount of Bear Down. :-D
This down is incredibly soft. It's very dirty and much of it is matted, so I'm not sure how much of it will become usable, but it is definitely spin-able. I will get to it as soon as I finish up the Rocky Mountain Goat. :-D
I'm feeling very blessed in the fiber department right now. :-)
Have a terrific weekend and Fiber Arts Friday!
