Sally Fox and Vreseis: Walking tours: History of Extra Long Staple Cotton
Walking tours of the section of the cotton breeding nursery which contain some of the most famous Extra Long Staple (ELS) cottons from the 19th Century through the end of the 20th Century. Sea Island, Ashmouni, Giza 45 to Pima S7. Plan for about an hour of walking and talking, wearing comfortable shoes. These tours are meant to support and celebrate the 40 years that I have been breeding cottons for organic farming and modern ecological textile processing.
In Yolo County just west of Woodland. Brooks, CA.
Socks for Mark: Using Weird Sisters Wool Emporium fingering weight called Luke in colorway Mermaids of the Black Lake with heels and toes in Dream in Color Yarn fingering called Mini Smooshy in the colorway As A Bird. I am about to start the toe of the second sock.
Ben’s sweater: I have finished the last Fibonacci sequence strip of the body but have not done the ribbing because I need Ben to try on the sweater to check the length. Started the first sleeve.
