Well, hello again. We are moving yet again in September to a new house. My fiber stuff has been in storage for over a year now and the new place just won't have the room. I don't know when I will have room so I am having a sale. Most of the fibers are just above wholesale cost. This is just the beginning!
For anyone local to the Ashland Oregon area, I will be having two 1-day yard sales in July. The first on is scheduled for the 10th. I will post a reminder here and in my art blog.
First, I will be trying to sell my 8-H, 60" wide, AVL modular production loom. I will have to sell this locally as shipping would be far to challenging in the time I have.
Here is a picture of it set up in our old house:
It is currently dis-assembled and well wrapped. I will help reassemble the loom for one day and will be here to consult. So the price? $2500.00. It comes with 2-60" reeds (10 and 12 dpi), has a single box flyshuttle with flyshuttles, and other basic accessories. I have more pictures if interested.

Next on the list, a drumcarder:
A Strauch Petite with basic accessories and free wool fiber. The drumcarder 
is equipped with the #05 (128 psi) fine carding cloth on the large drum and their unique "Slicker-Licker" cloth on the small drum. Designed to handle ALL fibers.including Merino, Llama, Alpaca, Cashmere blend, dog hair and other exotics. Strauch now sells the drumcarder with the brush attachment for $460. This one is gently used and does not include a brush attachment (can be purchased from Strauch for $75). I am asking $225.00 plus shipping (UPS starts at $11.27 depending on where you live). I had the drumcarder packaged in a double box at the UPS store so it is secure.
I will take a personal check or can send a Paypal link.
Next are several premium fibers. None of the prices listed include shipping. Shipping will be extra and I will try to find the least expensive.
Above is Henry's Attic Carrerra Yarn. It is 51% silk 50% merino. There are 2 lbs with about 1/2 pound being in 1 oz plus skeins. The yarn is 2000ypp. $85.00 for the lot.
This is a fine, textured Bombyx silk yarn I got from Robin n Russ. I payed $52 and am asking $25.00. There are 13oz on the cone. (SOLD TO MARIE)
Here is Henry's Attic Kona 100% superwash Merino wool at 1120 yyp. 1 lb for $20.00. (SOLD TO MARIE)
Above is Henry's Attic Monty's 3/9's. 100% Merino woo. 1 lb. $20.00 (SOLD TO MARIE)
Here is Henry's Attic Nantucket II. This bucle yarn is exquisite. It is 50% Mohair, 23% silk, 18% wool, and 5% nylon. 1 lb. $36.00
Above is Henry's Attic Australian 54's wool roving. Smooth and lovely. I have 8 lbs of it and am selling it in 1 lb balls for $12.00/ lb.
(SOLD TO SARA) Finally I have a Cheryl Samuels Ravenstail Celtic Firebag kit and book. This is a $110 value for $35.00. Here is what her website says about the kit:

This Kit is a new way of using twining techniques. With bright teals and purples, the project produces a bag with a Celtic style knot as the central pattern. Here is an inspirational project that broadens horizons. Fire Bags, once used to carry embers from hearth to hearth, now carry the spark of Celtic creativity. To complete the Fire Bag, learn a special beading technique called tracking. The Kit includes pre-cut thigh spun warp, weft yarns, templates, tin cones, seam tape, melton cloth, leather, beads, thread, lining abalone buttons, needles and lacing twine. 
Phew! That is it for now. I have a lot to let go of here. For my weaving friends, yes, I will still be weaving and will still have plenty of materials left to weave with!
Please contact me at if interested and we can work out the shipping and all. 
P.S. One last thing I forgot to mention. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a fund for a young cousin of mine, she is 25, who is struggling with a rather aggressive from of breast cancer. The remaining funds will be used to continue my art education. -Renee

Things are selling but there are still some things left.I have posted which ones are sold. I will have a new batch of fibers as soon as I can dig them out of storage and get them up so keep checking!
Thanks for helping me purge everyone! My husband also gives his appreciation since he won't have to move it!
