Gather is the newest addition to our farm yarn collection - a blend of California-grown, climate-beneficial Rambouillet wool, and Arizona-raised alpaca grown and blended by the mill. Seeking a fiber blend that would provide the wearer with warmth, be hearty enough for everyday wear, and soft enough for next-to-skin contact, we created Gather. The Rambouillet wool provides incredible strength and the alpaca lends the natural colors and drape, making a balanced, versatile, and cozy yarn.
