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 5 oz skein of Lincoln Locks wool. Its a highly textured really fun cool and crazy yarn! Lincoln is one of my favorite wools to work with! This wool is white Lincoln from Lein family farm in Iowa. This skein was dyed with locally wildcrafted pokeberries, a natural dye. I washed, dyed , and picked these locks myself, then spun them into this gorgeous yarn. Single ply, 50 yards, bulky weight.
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 housebunny 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 :) .
