Something to ease the winter doldrums.
After a long hot summer, it’s nice to see some cooler temps and Fall color! With the cooler temps, come chilly nights and cold feet! I’ve been dyeing up some of our new Angora Socks that will cure those popsicle toes.
These socks are not only warm and hard wearing, but they are machine washable! You can also throw them in the dryer, but laying flat to dry is best.
More colors coming. Stayed tuned! To order, please see the Shop Page.
Now that summer has officially ended, the Fall Fiber shows are almost upon us. While the tomato crop is still coming, the days are noticeably shorter and at least the last few days, cooler!

Looking forward to a new event for me–Yarnival! Here are some new things we will have at the event:
Our Silver Blizzard made with Sue Reuser’s Cormo Wool was such a success, we decided to repeat the run with all white Cormo. This time, Jane Killpack’s Cormo was used and it is every bit as nice! This yarn, like all our Blizzard yarns is 85% German Angora combined this time with 15% Cormo Wool. North American grown and North American processed.
The Cormo adds some bounce and a lively hand while really enhancing the softness of the angora. This yarn is very special and we are pleased to offer it to you. It is available In the Shop.
This isn’t yarn, batting, or fiber. But it’s a sign of Spring. Spring has been screaming at me for weeks and while it was here in Northern California, I was off in Ontario, Canada where it was still winter. When I got home, all that was left of the early blooms was my indoor Phalaenopsis, which while impressive, astonishing easy to grow.
Before I left, I managed to snap some photos of a few other delights blooming at the farm:
A Lovely Dogwood
A Tree Peony
And last but not least, the true harbinger of spring, a wonder pure German litter of seven:
For Angora Yarns and Fiber, I can be found at the following events in May:
Hope to see you there!
Winter is really one of my favorite times of year. I love the shorter days and the cooler weather. The winter light with it’s benign brilliance.
A new color reflecting both the darkness and the brilliant light of winter.
A little inspiration.
And a little splash of color to wipe away the blues. Perhaps something for Valentine’s Day?
And nothing says Fall like a maple tree! With that in mind, humans can only try:
And Winter is not far behind…
And nothing says Winter, like Silver Blizzard!
Lambtown is October 6 and 7! You can still sign up for workshops. Leslie Samson will be teaching two fabulous workshops: Scribble Lace Scarves and Botanical Felt. If you haven’t taken a workshop with Leslie, here’s your chance! A knowledgable and fun artist and fiber arts teacher, she is coming all the way from Ontario, Canada to teach. Don’t miss a great opportunity.
Of course Bungalow Farm will be there as well with lots of new color ways of angora batting and yarns. Scribble Lace kits will also be available.
We hope to see you all there!
While we might not be updating this website as often, we have been busy here at Bungalow Farm. The fantastic Scribble Lace Scarf, shown here by Leslie Samson, is now available as kit. Easy to make yourself. Gorgeous, elegant and can be made in just a few hours. The kit includes the luxurious angora/merino blend pencil roving with silk for felting. You can purchase the kit in the Shop.
Also new is our Angora/Polwarth/ Silk batting. Easy to spin, soft and silky. Also available in the Shop.
We were lucky to get our hands on some unbelievable Polwarth from Australia. Top grade, the best of the best. It’s been hand dyed and blended with our Prime German Angora and expertly carded into batting. Two colors are available and when it’s gone, it’s gone. Available in the Shop.
