Locally Spun Wool Yarns

Locally Spun Wool Yarns


These yarns are spun from soft, practically itch-free, 100% wool fibers.  They are spun locally on a 19th century mill which was recently imported to Michigan from England.  The quality of the yarns produced on this antique mill is exquisite.  When one dyes wool, the colors this natural fiber absorbs are rich, vibrant, and a pure joy to knit with.  It also felts beautifully if you are looking for 100% natural yarns to felt.

Colors available vary from month to month, so please call for color availability.
