Shetland and Icelandic Yarns
The Shetland and Icelandic yarns shown here are produced in the mill on the farm, from the fiber sheared twice a year from the farm flock of Shetland and Icelandic sheep. After the fiber is washed, picked and carded, it is spun into several different weights of yarn. Some fiber will be left in its natural colors; the rest will be hand dyed. When you purchase hand dyed yarn, be sure you get enough for your project because the next time we dye, it will probably not be the same. Things like water temperature, humidity, ambient temperature, water hardness, time in the dye bath, and unknown factors influence the outcome.
Superwash Merino, Silk/Merino, Sock, Thick & Thin, Baby Alpaca/Silk Lace and Bamboo yarns are purchased as natural-colored and hand dyed here on the farm.
