Source: Wool from Shetland sheep raised on the Mendip Hills of Somerset, England. Fleeces were sorted by color and scoured at The Natural Fibre Company in Devon. Kindly stored at the Saco River Dyehouse in Biddeford, Maine. Fleeces blended into final colors; fibers picked, carded, spun, skeined, washed, and twisted at the historic Harrisville Designs mill in Harrisville, New Hampshire. Each skein was tagged and shipped to you from the Pepperell Mill Campus in Biddeford, Maine.
