YARN, HANDKNITS, PROCESSED WOOL
Natural colored wool (off white to ivory, the complete grey and brown scales, unique silver to gold) is shorn from our own sheep. We then pick through our fibers to select the finest and softest portions of each fleece, while also removing any vegetative matter. (You’d be surprised how much hay can drop into the fleece of sheep as they jostle around the hay rack!)
We combine wool from fleeces to create specific color blends and textures. We have had our wool washed picked, carded and spun at mills in MI and NY to various weights, plys, gauges and yardages. (No chemicals, detergents or additives are utilized in the processing of our wool.)
Finished garments made with our yarns can be softened by adding a little lemon juice or white vinegar to the water used for blocking.
We knit and crochet a few apparel items, pillow covers and blankets using our yarns in order to provide inspiration to our yarn customers. These are one of a kind items and make exceptional gifts.
Natural colored wool roving and batting is available in limited quantities for home crafters.
