I’m working on a new design, and although I can’t tell you what it is, I can tell show you a few photos and tell you about the yarn. I’m thrilled to be working with Solitude Wool. They are a farm in Virginia not far from Washington, DC. They raise American sheep and purchase wool from other farms in the US and create beautiful breed specific yarns. The yarn is dyed by hand with natural plant dyes and acid dyes, and the yarn and colors are absolutely stunning.
I’m working with un-dyed Montadale Woolen, and eight colors of Romney. Both have a wonderful bounce and spring to them. There’s a wonderful natural springy woolliness that’s lost in a lot of manufactured yarns that I adore.
