New Chocolate: Righteously Raw
Raw, Organic, Kosher, Vegan, Nut/Gluten/Soy/Milk free, and tastes good at that!

* Why Raw?  Well, to begin with, I personnaly prefer the taste of raw chocolate to the roasted one. This brand has no refined sugar either and uses agave nectar instead. This does not distract your taste buds from the joy ride that 80-90% chocolate provides:)

* Chocolate (theobroma cacao) is one of the leading antioxidant rich substances on the planet known today. It is also an abundant source of minerals like iron and magnesium. When the cacao beans are roasted, these nutritional elements are damaged and may not be absorbed by the body at their full potential.

* Righteously Raw Chocolates are based in sunny California, and their four flavors are:

Goji Berry - not only delishious, but good for your energy level and eyesight.

Acai Berry - literally superfood, known as having the highest level of antioxidants of any berry.

Caramel bar - no milk here either, but a decadent mix of sub-tropical lucuma fruit and dates. Olga's favorite!

Maca Bar - a taste you've never experienced before (unless you are familiar with the Maca root, a super-food found in the high Andes). Maca is rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron and is also known for it’s ability to increase strength, rebuild a weak immune system, and enhance libido. Yes!

Artfelt is an innovative way to needlefelt  sturdy but lights scarves, camera cases, cuffs and anything else. The secret is in the special paper that does not melt until you want it to. For a fan’s testimony visit this blog: http://snarkolepsy.blogspot.com/2009/03/pictures-from-show.html

January 2010:
Imperial stock ranch: This wool really comes from an Oregon ranch, in fiber business since 1871. They used to be Pendleton’s supplier until late 90s, but Pendleton outsourced their production. I am going to be getting their roving – to knit with or spin or needlefelt and their bulky one ply wool, fabulous for anything wooly.
