We're back from vacation and hard at work on the summer goal of bringing more local fiber to our customers
Yarn raised right here in Allegany County, NY. Pete MacDonald is a farmer and retired teacher who keeps a small flock of Dorset and Dorset cross sheep just a short drive away from our store. A man of many talents, he's been a member of our knitting group since 2004. Every year he alternates the mills to which he sends his fleece and this group comes from Bartlett Yarn in Harmony, ME.
This yarn is a heavy worsted and works best on metal needles and either a blunt or sharp point, depending on your preference. It's been used by our customers for years to make everything from Christmas stockings, felted hats, sweaters, and blankets.
2 ply, 210 yards
Hand wash, lay flat to dry
Because this yarn is not as heavily processed as other lines the fiber has natural lanolin and may sometimes contain bits of chaff.
