Package #1 was from my Mom. I grew up on a sheep farm, and my very talented Mom has always used the wool from our sheep to spin, dye, and knit. (We were the only weirdos in town that had a bunch of dead-headed flowers in the yard from from cutting the flowers off to use as dye.) Later on, my sisters, Mom and I used the wool for needle felting. But, it's difficult to make a living off of a product that is 100% hand-made. For the first time ever, Mom decided that the most recent harvest of wool was to be processed and made into yarn. She still dyes the yarn by hand, but at least she's sparing the flowers this time. Let me just tell you that it's the most gorgeous yarn you've ever seen, and I am the overjoyed owner of 3 skeins of it - natural white, gray, and hand-dyed blue. (I am practically giddy!!!!)
|Yes. I am a big dork, and the first thing I did was take them out of the box, line them up, and admire them.|
|Like I said, I'm a dork.|
Oh, and if you want a bit of this awesome yarn for yourself, just contact my Mom via her etsy site. She should be posting some yarn soon!
