In the meanwhile here are two of our wwoof-ers modeling our hats felted from the Hungarian Racka and cigája sheep wool:


and a little weaving with handspun yarn (racka with flax warp):


All of our daughter's clothing has been handmade by us parents from organic materials since her birth, it is about time we finish up on ours!



LOVE the pics, the clothes look great!

Wonderful website, thanks for sharing.
For me, it is not about the money. I was in the corporate world for years, and like everyone else THOUGHT I was prosperous, but all I owned was DEBT.
And on top of that I was not happy and my health was being affected from stress and working 50-70 hours a week for YEARS and getting screwed out of my vacation time because I was " management". Long story short, one year I didn't even make 10% of what I used to make, but I was far happier not being in DEBT.
What I have God has truly blessed me with and I OWN... It more about living a Simple Life and learning and applying skills used in the 1700 and 1800's, simple skills that will work when there is no electricity, SMALL scale for me, not big production.

Thank you for posting this. This situation has been a long time coming. Food and Water are becoming big issues nowadays. We have to take simple steps like having our own small gardens and having a water source other than city water, this is one of the reasons I am here, to add to my skills....
