Rooster’s “Tale” – The male of many species is by far the prettiest.  This is the case in our flock of chickens.  We began with one rooster and for anyone familiar with raising these creatures, I am sure you know how this “tale” will end.  In the freezer!  I wish that wasn’t the case.  Our boys are pretty and in the beginning a pleasure to have around but I have learned another phrase in the world of chickens and that is “Boys are trouble!”  they are.. I have the stories and bruises to prove it.  Still, for a little while, they are pretty to look at.

To block your garment, add a good splash of vinegar to hot bath water.  Although we make every effort to ensure that our yarns are rinsed well, different water conditions in your area may cause some colours to bleed.  By using the above technique for your first wash, this should eliminate any possibility of spoiling your project.  To keep your yarns bight and happy, I suggest that you hand wash your finished garments with cold water, rinse well and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.
