EMERGENCY UPDATE


UNFORTUNATELY ALL OF THESE SUCCESSFUL THINGS HAPPENING CAME WITH HATERS IN THE FORM OF MY PARENTS. IT IS UNFORTUNATE. BEHIND THE SCENES I HAVE BEEN BEING SABOTAGED AND THEY ARE NOT TAKING MY BUSINESS FROM ME TOO. (I PUT THE STORY ON MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE AND A GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE @RESERVOIRFIBERS.)  I HAVE DEALT WITH ABUSE MY ENTIRE LIFE AND ENOUGH IS JUST ENOUGH. UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE TO UP ROOT AND LEAVE FAR AWAY FROM MASSACHUSETTS AND GET MY SON AND I OUT OF THIS.  I AM SO SORRY FOR BEING BEHIND. MY MOTHER HAS BEEN ATTACKING ME SINCE THE LAST PRE-SALE WHEN SHE HEARD IT WENT WELL.  MAKING SURE SHE DOES ANYTHING SHE CAN TO TAKE UP THE STOVE SO I CAN NOT USE IT.  I CAN NOT KEEP DOING THIS OBVIOUSLY AND IT IS A SHAME ISN'T IT? WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO LOVE YOU AND SUPPORT YOU, ALWAYS HAVE IT OUT FOR YOU IF GOD FORBID, YOU SEE THE SLIGHTEST BIT OF SUCCESS.  INSTEAD OF THEM BEING PROUD OF THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS LATELY, I GOT JEALOUSY AND PETTINESS. IT IS A ONE DAY DRIVE TO WHERE WE ARE GOING AND WE ARE MOVING ONTO A FARM WITH RAMBOUILLET SHEEP,ALPACAS, HORSES, CHICKENS, THE WORKS! WELL DESERVED AT THIS POINT AND I AM THANKING MY LUCKY STARS, THAT I MADE SOME GOOD FIBER FRIENDS WHO WANT TO WORK TOGETHER AND ARE WILLING TO COME AND SAVE MONTE AND I.*THANK YOU FOR COMING JAMES* THERE IS DEFINITLEY A GOD AND HE HEARS YOUR PRAYERS. i AM PACKING NOW AND GETTING READY TO GO. IT WON'T TAKE ME LONG TO GET BACK TO WORK AS I HAVE A WHOLE SET UP THERE WAITING FOR ME TO JUST MOVE MY STOCK IN AND START DYING IT.  NOT ONLY THAT, I WILL HAVE YARN BASES AND SPINNING FIBER, GROWING ON MY SHEEP SEEDS, IN THE BACK YARD LOL!SO WE ARE ABOUT TO EXPAND, BIG TIME. SOMETIMES WHEN THINGS FALL APART, IT IS REALLY JUST GOD MAKING THINGS FALL INTO PLACE, EVEN IF THE SITUATION SEEMS ANYTHING BUT.  ANYONE WITH ORDERS IN, JUST BARE WITH ME, I WILL HAVE THEM OUT ASAP, AFTER I GET DOWN THERE.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT! I WILL SEE YOU DOWN SOUTH IN A FEW DAYS AND LET YOU KNOW UPDATES AS THEY COME. AND REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE A VICTIM OF ABUSE, YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO BE TREATED THAT WAY.  YOU DESERVE THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE AND I LOVE YOU, EVEN IF I HAVEN'T MET YOU YET, I LOVE YOU TOO.  PEOPLE DESERVE TO BE HAPPY AND IT'S A SHAME THAT SOMETIMES SUCCESS BREEDS HATE. EVEN FROM THOSE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM.  I GUESS SOMETIMES FAMILIES CAN BE TOXIC AND I JUST SO HAPPEN TO HAVE ONE OF THOSE FAMMILIES. LUCKILY I TURNED OUT THE OPPOSITE WAY AND MY SON AND I ARE ABOUT TO HAVE THE TIME OF OUR LIVES AWAY FROM THIS FOREVER.  IF YOU NEED HELP, REMEMBER TO OPEN UP AND TELL A FRIEND OR MAYBE EVEN CALL A HOTLINE, YOU WILL FIND HELP OUT THERE.  DO NOT PUT UP WITH ABUSE, I AM NOT DOING IT ANYMORE AND I AM WALKING AWAY. I HATE THAT I NEED TO PUT THIS UP BUT THIS IS A SITUATION THAT NEEDS TO BE TALKED ABOUT.  I HATE THAT I EVEN HAVE TO SAY IT. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE, THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING AND THANK YOU FOR OUR SUPPORT. I APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN I CAN SAY. KNOW I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND IT IS BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS THAT I HAVE THE COURAGE TO STICK UP FOR MYSELF FOR ONCE AND GET AWAY FROM THIS. LOVE YOU GUYS MORE THAN PIE AND CUPCAKES!   UPDATES SOON


::UPDATES::


UPDATE 04/03/2020-  UNPACKING HAS BEEN TAKING LONGER THAN ASSUMED AS I HAVE LITERALLY HAD TO CLEAN THE WHOLE HOUSE AS I GO.  THE LIVE IN FARM HELP APPARENTLY RAN A MUCK HERE AND WAS SUPER DIRTY SOOOO, THE WHOLE HOUSE WAS APPARENTLY FILLED WITH MICE AND COCKROACKES ABOUT A YEAR AGO.  NONE OF IT HAS BEEN CLEANED AND THERE IS NO WAY I AM JUST LEAVING MOUSE DROPPINGS EVERYWHERE. SO, I HAVE HAD TO DEEP CLEAN AS I AM UNPACKING.  COVID-2 HAS MADE THINGS A LOT MORE DIFFUCULT HAVING TO HOME SCHOOL MY SON, ON TOP OF HAVING TO RUN THIS WHOLE FARM BY MYSELF.  THE USUAL HELP CAN NOT COME DUE TO THE VIRUS SO I HAVE HAD TO DO ALL OF THIS MYSELF.  I HAVE FINALLY GOTTEN TO MY STOCK I AM JUST WAITING ON MY MERINO SILK TO COME IN AS WELL AS SYNTHRAPOL AND DYES AS I FORGOT A LOT OF THAT STUFF UNDER MY KITCHEN SINK BACK IN MASSACHUSETTS.  WE ARE ALL PLAYING THE WAITING GAME HERE, SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.  I HOPE YOU ALL ARE HEALTHY AND WELL!  THIS IS A SCARY TIME FOR ALL OF US... REMEMBER TO STAY POSTIVE AND DO NOT FEED THE FEAR FACTORY.  TRY NOT TO OBSESS AND WATCH THE NEWS.  WHEN YOU ARE IN A STATE OF FIGHT OR FLIGHT MODE, ALSO KNOWN AS PANIC AND ANXIETY MODE, YOUR BODY SUPRESSES YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM AND YOU ARE MORE PRONE TO ILLNESS AND DISEASE.


       SO, PLEASE REMEBER TO STAY POSITIVE IN LIGHT OF THIS SITUATION! I DO NOT KNOW IF ANY OF YOU KEEP UP WITH THE EARTH'S SCHUMANN REONANCE, BUT I DO AS I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SCIENCE.  THE NATURAL VIBRATION OF THE PLANET HAS ALWAYS BEEN BETWEEN 7-8 HERTZ. THE RESONANCE/VIBRATION OF THE PLANET HAS BEEN RISING SINCE FEBRARY 3RD,2020.  THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE "NEGATIVE AND VIBRATE AT A LOWER FREQUENCY", YOUR VIBRATION WILL NOT MATCH THAT OF THE PLANET AND MAKE YOU FEEL SICK. THIS RISING OF THE SCHUMANN RESONANCE, IS ACTUALLY UNHEARD OF.  BUT PROPHECY STATES THAT WE ARE DUE TO GO BACK TO THE GOLDEN AGE AS WE JUST TRAVERSED THE "DARK SIDE OF INFINTY" AND NOW WE ARE CROSSING BACK TO THE OTHER SIDE OF INFINTY (THIS HAS TO DO WITH ASTROLOGY, MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE AS I LOVE ALL OF THIS STUFF. I LOVE "USELESS/RANDOM INFORMATION". THINK OF ME LIKE YOUR OWN PERSONAL,TALKING ENCYCOLPEDIA OF RANDOM FACTOIDS LOL! VIBRATE HIGHER. LET YOUR CUP OVER FLOW WITH LOVE SO IT SPILLS OUT ONTO EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE AROUND YOU.  YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU WILL SEE THAT LOVE REFLECTED BACK TO YOU, IN YOUR REALITY, IN MANY WAYS, SHAPES AND FORMS. 


      AS OF APRIL 2ND,2020 THE SCHUMANN RESONANCE HIT AN AMAZING 60 HERTS! SEEING AS THE USUAL IS 7-8 HERTZ, THAT IS A HUGE SPIKE IN VIBRATION AND FREQUENCY.  IS IT COINCIDENCE THAT THIS IS ALL HAPPENING AT THE SAME TIME? ABSOLUTELY NOT! IT IS ALL CONNECTED! SO REMEBER TO VIBRATE HIGHER AND FILL YOUR HEART WITH LOVE. IT WILL DEFINITELY HELP YOU MAKE IT THROUGH THIS UNSCATHED AND UNHARMED!  I WISH I COULD SAY MORE BUT PEOPLE WOULDN'T LISTEN IF I DID.  LET'S JUST SAY SOMETHING REALLY STRANGE HAPPENED TO ME A FEW MONTHS AGO AND I TOLD PEOPLE THIS WAS COMING BACK IN FEBRUARY.  I HAVE MULTIPLE WITNESSES TO ATTEST TO THE FACT I SAID ALL OF THIS WAS COMING.. UNFORTUNATLEY I CAN NOT GO INTO MUCH DETAIL BECAUSE AGAIN, MOST PEOPLE WON'T LISTEN.  BUT I WAS MOST DEFINITELY TRYING TO LET ALL OF YOU KNOW IN A ROUNDABOUT WAY, WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE FULL STORY ON THAT AND HOW I KNOW THIS WAS COMING, I WOULD BE HAPPY TOP SHARE THE STORY.  BUT YOU NEED AN OPEN MIND AS THIS EVEN BAFFLED ME AND IT HAPPENED TO ME. IT STILL BAFFLES ME TO THIS DAY.. I EVEN SAID I WAS GOING TO HAVE TO GO ON A QUEST AND HERE I AM IN KENTUCKY RIGHT ON THE LEY LINE CONNECTED TO THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE, WHICH IS ALSO NOT COINCIDENCE.


   I WISH I COULD SAY MORE HERE. BUT UNFORTUNATLEY, PEOPLE SHUN WHAT THEY DO NOT COMPREHEND.  SO I UNFORTUNATLEY, CAN NOT JUST COME OUT AND SAY IT. BUT AGAIN, I WILL LEAVE BREAD CRUMBS AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE FULL STORY, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME IN THE "CONTACT SECTION", OR ON FACEBOOK. FACEBOOK IS BETTER AS I HAVE TO SHOW YOU WITH IMAGES, VIDEO, DOCUMENTS, MATHEMATICS, HISTORY, ASTROLOGY AND MANY OTHER FACTS TO BACK UP MY CLAIMS,AS I AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW MYSELF TO COME OFF AS "CRAZY".  I SCORED IN THE TOP 2% OF THE UNITED STATES IN TESTING (GENIUS LEVEL LITERALLY).  SO I AM FAR FROM IT AND MAYBE, I AM A LITTLE TOO SMART.  I LEFT YOU GUYS A BREADCRUMB IN THE NEWEST COLOR THEORY VIDEO TOO.  "COLOR IS AN ILLUSION" ***hint***hint***

  

    I NOT ONLY HAVE UNDENIABLE PROOF AND FACTS TO BACK ME UP. I HAVE MULTIPLE WITNESSES,THAT CAN ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT I TOLD THEM ALL OF THIS WAS COMING AND MORE.  LET'S JUST SAY NOSTRADAMUS IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER! BUT THIS TIME,"HE" IS A "SHE".  LOOK UP "HYDROMANCY" AND HOW PEOPLE USED TO TELL THE FUTURE **hint***hint**

I WAS ABLE TO TELL THE FUTURE ****hint*****hint**** THERE,ARE YOUR BREADCRUMBS.  WANT TO KNOW MORE? CONTACT ME!! REMEMBER TO VIBRATE HIGHER AND FILL YOUR HEART WITH LOVE.  EVERYTHING IN ITS ESSENCE IS VIBRATION.  IF YOU ARE NEGATIVE AND VIBRATING LOWER, YOU ARE DOING YOURSELF A DISSERVICE.  I KNOW ITS HARD TO BE HAPPY AND SEE THE LIGHT" RIGHT NOW, BUT PLEASE TRY TO... I AM DOING EVERYTHING I CAN TO HELP. I LOVE YOU ALL!  


AS ALWAYS, I LOVE YOU ALL AND I HOPE YOU ARE DOING WELL. I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON!

How To Dye Self Striping Yarn- In Depth Tutorial

Part 1:Intro/ Warping Your Yarn


Length of Niddy Noddy 44"

Feet are 10"- So you can make your own out of 3/4" PVC Pipe.

This Niddy Noddy makes skeins that are almost 15 feet around so that each color run is a little over four feet.  Skeins shrink slightly when you dye them so when it dries it may be slightly smaller. 

Three, four foot color runs=12 feet needed

an extra foot of each color allows for about 4'10" color runs after shrinkage.

How to Crochet a Messy Bun Beanie Series

Beginner's Tutorial/ Simple Pattern

Part 2 of 5

How to start your hat. How to crochet around the hair tie. How to work your increase rows.  Up close and personal so you can see every stitch recorded on an HD camera so you can see EVERYTHING PERFECTLY!

Part 3 of 5

Still working our increases then we finally get to working the length of the hat. 88 stitches per row until you get the length hat you need. Mine ended up to be 6 inches total before adding the brim.  Adjust size to your liking. Does not necessarily need to be 6 inches but this size DOES fit most people. This is the size I make 90 percent of the time. 

Messy Bun Beanie Tutorial Continued

Part 4 of 5

Hook switch from 4mm to 3.5mm to make the brim nice and tight between stitches to keep the ears warm.  Shows how to start the brim from the hat. No cutting of the yarn, just continuing on but in an outward (away from hat), then back inward (toward hat then connecting brim to hat with slip stitches) working pattern.  Shows how to start working your rows.

Part 5 of 5

Continuing on with the brim until we go all the way around the bottom of the hat and back around to where we started.  Then I show you how to connect it together.  Weave, weave and weave your ends in until you can not weave anymore of your tail to make sure your hat will NEVER come apart!! Do not cut corners or you could end up with a catastrophe! Take the time now to avoid bad things later on.  You don't ever want to spend all of this time making a piece, just to have it all unravel on you! Take the time and weave those ends baby! Tie off/knot and YOU ARE DONE! 

*Finishing step- Blocking, especially if it is for a customer or someone else besides yourself. Take the time to wash and block your pieces so it lays flat and perfect.  If it is for a customer REMEMBER to let them know to not over stretch the hole for fear of the hair tie snapping with the washing instructions.  I have been wearing my hat almost 4 years now and I have been making these hats for about the same time and I have never snapped mine, nor have I had a customer snap theirs.

How to Comb

Raw/Washed Fleece

on a Mounting Pad.

This video is also an ASMR video for some, which means it can provide a satisfying tingling sensation within you.  This video is done in the first person prespective so you almost feel like it's you doing the combing! ASMR triggers are auditory and visual in this video. You can use this video just to relax and also as a tutorial on how to comb raw, washed fleece.  

Fleece:  Pure Bred, Award Winning, 100% white  Rambouillet from Ranching Tradition Fiber.  You can find them on Facebook!

Mounting Pad for Fine Valkyrie Combs made by Me! I will be making more to sell.  If you would like one for yourself sooner than they are up for sale please contact me and I will make you one.


The whiteness of this fleece would not be possible without Unicorn Clean Products!  To scour the fleece I used Unicorn Power scour and in the final rinse cycle I used their Fiber rinse and their products speak for themselves.  LOOK at how WHITE and FLUFFY that fiber is!

Flicking really matted and stuck together ends just a tad to make washing easier. If ends aren't gunked up then you do not need to flick them. I just prefer to get it a little less clumped together so it is easier for the power scour to penetrate.

How to Make Roving on a Drum Carder

Tutorial on how to hand pull your own roving off of your drum carder with a diz. 


TIPS: When pulling your fiber off remember your staple length.  If you pull too much, your roving will break and you will not have a continuous strand of roving.  Here I used merino, so I was drafting/pulling out between two and three inches, then pushing my diz down the fiber toward the carder. 


This is a great way to make your own colors and blends of roving.  Find us on Facebook for more live feeds. I will be doing an instructional video on just how to make this rainbow roving in the near future. More tutorials are coming so keep an eye out, stay tuned and have fun my fiber friends!  I hope this tutorial helps you!
