Purveyor of Fine Yarns
Purveyor of Fine Yarns – Fine Yarns from Here and Away – At this market the focus is on yarns from Here, single breed yarns that allow knitters to experience the unique qualities of specific breeds of sheep. Traditionally not every fleece was valued because of the softness of the fiber (Cormo), some sheep breeds were valued because the fleece was especially durable (Clun Forest) or the variety of natrual colors (Corriedale). We offer yarn in its natural color (naked) and dyed with botanical or traditional dyes.
The Purveyor supports small producers. Wool is sourced in the USA (mostly in Wisconsin) and the yarn is spun in Wisconsin.
