Artist and Farmer

This one-of-a-kind Art Yarn was made by me on my farm, August Moon Farm, in Northern VA. I use the wool from my three sheep, as well as natural fibers from local farms and local dyers. I use natural solar dying methods with my own Finn sheep wool. Using hand carders and a hand-cranked drum carder, the wool and other fibers are combed into batts. These batts may contain my own sheep's wool, local wool, alpaca, cashmere, recycled sari silk, mohair and/or a variety of threads, feathers, and sparkle. The result is then spun by hand on a spinning wheel to produce the final product. Primarily using natural and local fibers, my yarns can be used to knit, crochet, wear, or incorporate into any craft project.

Welcome, and Thanks for checking out our site!

Each piece and skein of yarn is unique. If your project requires larger quantities of yarn, contact me and I will spin a special lot for you and will match the colors as closely as possible. While the yarn has been rinsed thoroughly, I would recommend the item made from it to be washed separately for the first time.

I use natural light when taking my product shots to obtain the best color representation. Pictures are taken close-up on a macro setting, and may appear larger than in real life. Please verify the size in the description. Although I am not editing pictures except cropping, color also may look different depending on your monitor settings and lighting. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message through the etsy system.
