Betty taught two sessions of "Wool Products as a side business" on Saturday and Sunday. RabbitCon classes were held at the meeting rooms at Hilton Hotel while the rabbits were cooped at the San Diego County Fairgrounds at Del Mar. The pictures on this page were taken in the Sunday class. Betty is showing the needle felting in this picture. The sheep in her hand was made by Judge Allen M. On the table there are other products made from Angora wool, Fuzzy Lop wool and Mohair. Jersey Wooly wool is also suitable for such purposes.
Betty shows off a scarf that she made. This scarf is very dense and uses two colors; it is not the best project intended for sale; it requires a lot of Angora yarn and the pattern is time-consuming thus would command a higher price tag. On the table, there are some other scarves that show different styles.
Betty shows off a white lacy scarf made from Angora yarn. It's light and airy, the pattern is not very complicated and takes less yarn and less time to knit comparing to the blue/tort scarf in Betty's other hand. It's easier to make and sell a lacy and light scarf that does not command a high price. Later that day, the white scarf was sold.
Betty shows off a triangle shawl; Betty spun the yarn and her hubby wove the shawl on a loom that he made.
Guest speaker Carol G. shows off a Fuzzy Lop and Merino blend wool sample. On the right lower corner, some of the yarn samples are in the box.
These are samples of products that are made from Angora and Fuzzy Lop wool in conjunction with camel and merino yarns.
