This is a Diz. It appears that it is a niche group of fine folks who know what it is. I wasnt one of them until June of this year when I did my first fibre festival. Now I am trying to make clay ones for the poel e who take fleece into rovings before it is spun into wool. Who knew so I will be trying these out in my own colours and shapes before the Manitoba Fibre Festival in September.
Also, a request to help support my aim to get votes in the Manitoba Garden Makeover contest which I entered my Urban farm in, here is the link for gardens who are converting to edible landscape; http://manitobagarden.com/2013-entrants/winnipeg-entrants/nancys-casi-cielo/
