A yarn grown by sheep we raised ourselves and with the help of a few of our friends. Processed and milled locally, and dyed right here on our farm.

We purchased our flock of CVM sheep and moved to a 22 acre farm by Shuswap Lake in British Columbia Canada with a dream of producing our own yarns.

We were delighted to discover that a nearby farm was also raising CVM sheep and incorporated their fleeces into our yarns as well. Bruce Husband and Sonya Gregg’s fleeces have won many prizes throughout the years and we are delighted to have them as our neighbour and their wool in our yarns!

After having worked with Custom Woollen Mills for many years while running our yarn store Knitopia, we decided to hand our treasured fleeces to over to them.

The mill uses spinning machines that produce true woollen spun yarns, creating the light bouncy hand expected from woollen spun yarns.

We believe in respecting the fibre and the land that produced it, so our washing techniques that do not include harsh chemical agents.

We feel much the same about this in our dye process and use low-impact fibre reactive acid dyes. We exhaust our dye baths with each dye lot to remove leftover dye particles from our waste water.

We hope that you will feel the love and consideration that went into this yarn with every stitch.
