As you've probably gathered by now, I'm super particular about the sourcing of materials. I'm careful about all of my purchasing decisions from tomatoes to house paint. Imagine my delight when a friend told me about a lovely farm of rescue sheep run by a wonderful farmer. The sheep all pay their way to live in this glorious retirement retreat by "donating" their fibers for sale. It's such a spectacular idea because sheep need to be sheared anyway, so why not sell it to fund their peaceful little lifestyles?! I was happy enough to support this cause on principle, but I was even more excited to discover how incredible each individual sheep's fiber was anyway! Here are some of my very first yarns, all proudly spun from these happy, unique fibers.
