Open House at the farm: natural dyeing, sheep & goats

location: Solitude, Gretchen & Joan’s farm. 34923 Snickersville Turnpike, Round Hill, VA 20141. There is a small forest of pokeweed and ever so many black walnuts at the farm! Come help harvest and then dye yarn with the berries and nuts. Joan will be giving farm tours in the golf cart and you can earn a promise of dyed yarn for helping to pick poke berries. You're welcome to bring your wheel or knitting and sit on the porch or back patio and enjoy a bit of goat cheese.
