Pygora Projects: Knit, Felt, Crochet!

For a wonderful description of Pygora fiber, check out an article written by Carol Huebscher Rhoades, in the “Spin-Off Fall 2008” magazine.

Check out these two patterns on Ravelry designed especially for Pygora yarn!

Crescent Leaves by Patty Boldenow, and A Simple Wrap by Grace McEwen.

Below are photos of knitted, crocheted and felted projects made with our Fiat Lux Fibers‘ home grown Pygora fiber. Raw fleeces were professionally dehaired and spun by Morning Sun Fiber Barn.  Felting was done with the “waste” fiber that comes off during the dehairing process. To see more projects, or details regarding patterns, needles, and yardage, check out my Ravelry notebook.
