“Pecking Order” – Chicken’s have been a part of the RavensWood family now for over a year. We have gone from raising day old layer’s to selecting heritage Barred Rock hens, hatching chicks and now harvesting eggs and putting meat in the freezer. Some of this has come with joy. Other parts have come with some struggles. Regardless, what we have learned is that there are some old sayings such as “flew the coop,” “like a chicken with it’s head cut off,” and “pecking order,” have some solid foundation in their origins. This is my interpretation of the Pecking Order in our coop.
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.
