Yarn & Natural Fiber
From Brown Sheep Co. of Mitchell Nebraska. 80% cotton for lightness and ease of care, 20% wool for spring and resilience. Perfect for Scandinavian and Fair Isle knitting, but lightweight enough for our temperate coastal climate.
12 slender plies of 80% cotton/20%wool make gently stretchy baby clothes. An adult garment will have more drape than one knitted with the dk weight cotton fleece.
Designed for weaving, this worsted single ply yarn knits up brilliantly to make durable outer garments with superior stitch definition.
I have integrated small selection of Lanaloft with the "Top of the Lamb" because they are structurally identical, the only difference being that Lanaloft is moth-proof. Together, the two collections represent a more complete spectrum for tapestry weaving, as well as a greater color selection for high-definition knitting.
Naturally-colored cotton grown in central California and spun in Idaho to various weights for weaving, knitting and crochet.
"Cotolin" from M. Brassard et Fils of Plessisville, Quebec. 60% organic cotton and 40% Belgian linen, spun and dyed in Canada.
Various weights of American mill-spun yarn from the Brown Sheep Co., some discounted. Supplies and varieties subject to availability.
"Ace-in-the-Hole Romneys" consistently win blue ribbons at our Humboldt County Fair. This pin-drafted roving of the natural brown was processed by Mendocino Wool & Fiber down in Ukiah.
From "Russell Ranch in the Redwoods," comes delightful huacaya alpaca in four natural colors. Cindy advised me that the brown alpaca "likes to roll," so there's a little bit of hay in there.
