Hey gals! Love your podcast!

This may be a bit out-of-the-blue, but I have an idea for an interview/roadtrip for you. I have just been reading about the Stonehedge Fiber Mill in East Jordan, MI, and it sounds like a really interesting place. I have always been curious about what it would be like to send some raw or washed fiber to a mill for processing, but I have never tried it. Stonehedge also sells the equipment so you can start a mill of your own!

Of course, I have no idea how far East Jordan is from you guys, but I would love to hear a first-hand account of a custom fiber-processing mill by you two.

Anyway, just a thought. Keep up the good work!

I believe that is where Shepherds wool is made. We will look into it, thank you.
