I've been wondering how many of us assembled here actively (versus idle speculation) use fiber arts

I don't grow my own. (living in a city limits one's options, and living in Minnesota limits even more.) But I do spin, and I'm looking forward to learning natural dyes eventually.

Since I'm not going to raise my own sheep (or even my own angora rabbit, given the size of my tiny house and the existing presence of the cat), I do buy fiber every year from our local fiber festival, which has local and regional farmers. This year's haul includes 2 pounds of a fleece from a sheep in northern Minnesota named Opal. (It's a gorgeous silvery fleece, too. Corriedale.) that are going to be a shawl.

Most commonly, I've spun (undyed fleece from a single sheep whose identity I know) for ritual tokens - signs of commitment from me in ritual, for example, or as part of a seasonal token. I do plan to spin to knit a ritual shawl or three down the road, but the actual spinning part will take a while first.
