I've recently had a lot of questions about what yarns we might have for sale (possibly because of the new podcast!) I'll be completely honest - not much right now, for lots of different reason. And if you're interested in that conversation, I'm going to discuss it in detail on the next episode of the My Wool Mitten podcast, out sometime this December.

"Dunbonnet" - moorit Corriedale-Bond cross from sheep Jessie, Jinger and Leoch (see Leoch's picture below). 3 ply, worsted spun sport weight, 240-250 yards; $20 per skein plus shipping. I have

"Lineage" is our latest offering, and is so named as a nod to the lineage of the sheep who produced the fleece to make it. We're very much about bloodlines and history in our flock of Corriedales and "Image" and her daughter "Naomi" are descendants of one of our first sheep, "Violet" - a perennial favorite and prolific fiber producer. This is a warm grey, 2-ply worsted weight. It was spun at a different mill than our other yarns and there are occasional slubs as well as overspun spaces in the skeins, giving it more of a handspun feel. Look closely at the photo above (click on the image to make it larger) and you will see examples of this. Please be aware of the uneven spin before purchasing this yarn, and if that's unacceptable consider a different yarn for your project. About 240-250 yards each, $20 per skein plus shipping.

NOTE: If you would prefer to have the darker chestnut of "Dunbonnet" in your set, just let me know and I can substitute it for one of the other colors.
If you're interested in purchasing any of these yarns, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability. Include your zip code so I can calculate shipping. We accept Paypal, personal check or money order.
And as always, thank you for considering our small farm fibers and yarns!
