Supporting local farms is very important to me. I ONLY source fibers from local fiber farms raising sustainable, happy, healthy fiber animals. Whenever possible I try to know the name of every fiber-producing animal who contributes to my yarns! It is a delight and a joy to work with local fiber producers raising wonderful animals.
This is a pure and simple creamy white Lincoln wool lockspun yarn from the Lein farm flock in Iowa . I washed and picked these locks myself, then spun them into this gorgeous yarn. Single ply, 50 yards, bulky weight. Perfect as is, to add texture and pop to any project! It also takes dye beautifully, works well for weaving or felting, and makes great doll hair or dreadlocks!
This wool was dyed with sustainably harvested logwood. I have noticed that with the darker logwood dye, sometimes there is "crocking" or color rub-off. I have washed these yarns well, but it still is a possibility.
I have spun and knit with lots of this Lincoln locks yarn, so if you want pattern ideas or suggestions, simply convo me!
Often these yarns are completely one of a kind, but occasionally I might have doubles, or may be able to custom-spin larger amounts if you need. Please convo me if you have any questions or requests.
These yarns are spun in my home; I do my absolute best to keep my felines and house bunny out of the fiber, but please do be aware that these yarns are created in an pet-friendly home. After they are spun, tagged, photographed and listed on etsy, they "live" in my herb shop until they are sold, so they DO smell pleasantly of herbs - most people find this pleasant but if you think this might be objectionable, you have been warned :) .
