Update 3/12/2014 (search for fleeces)

Greenland Gown Project

Hello friends.

Just a short note to let you all know that life and the work is ongoing. Nothing new on the research from as I am concentrating all of my energy and available time to getting the fleece processing done for the Navajo Churro fleeces.

This does not mean that my mind has stopped working. There is something very cathartic about doing repetitive hand work. It frees your mind to travel to other places almost effortlessly.

So, my mind is now looking towards the search for Icelandic fleeces. In order for the fleeces to work for this project, they must come directly from Iceland or from a North American supplier who’s blood lines run back to the original flock transported to Canada in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

I have been able to get wonderful support from my churro fleece supplier who has given me a low price for very good fleeces. It is my hopes that I can find an Icelandic breeder that would be willing to be a part of this project and offer to sell their fleece for a good price to help support this large experimental archaeology project.

So this and the loom construction are the two main topics of my bored brain at this time.

If there is anyone out there who would like to help with the fleece issue, could you please contact me at doreen@greenlandgown.org

Be well, All of you, until we meet here again.

Doreen
