Already have this yarn knitted up and it turned out beautifully. I wish I could include a photo here, but have not felted the piece yet. Mixed it with a skid black wool for a felted purse......looks stunning already. I am very pleased.
I am currently working with this yarn and it is making up just the way I envisioned....beautiful and artsy. Cannot find enough good adjectives to describe the feeling I get every time I open a package from her.
I am , with yarn, like a child in a candy store. This woman's yarn is not only yummy, but so beautiful and fine to work with.
This skein will be made into a showcase piece.....the colors are fantastic! Best hand dyed and spun yarn out there!
Gorgeous , gorgeous yarn.....cannot wait to use it.
Can't say enough good things about this ladies' yarn. Just beautiful and fun wot work with.

Good quality, great price and fast shipping. I can't wait to use it! :)
When I opened this shop in 2008, all of the yarn was spun from the organic fleece of the sheep, goats and llamas at Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora NY. The Park was closed in 2011 and the animals went to other homes. .
The change has enabled me to explore new types of wool and new ways to spin it. Wool straight from the sheep continues to be my favorite fiber: Lincoln Longwool from Rita, Leicester Longwool from Abigail, Cotswold from Isabella, Blue-faced Leicester from Lena.
I try to know a bit about the sheep; wash, dry, and sometimes dye the entire fleece; then spin it curly or straight, bulky or worsted, single or plyed, from the lock or onto a core. If I could spin only natural colors I would. That said, I love to see new shades emerge from the dyepot and I use combinations of Greener Shades--an eco-dye--with other vinegar acid dyes.. There is no fragrance used in the making of my yarns-- and no cigarette smoke at all. But sometimes there is bling.
I would rather be spinning.

I understand international customs rules and will fill out forms accordingly. I will ship pkg air mail but not priority to international addresses.
And Canada? No problem. Formerly I took your package across the Bridge to mail. Turns out it is less expensive and faster to mail from the Bflo airport post office--so that is what I'll do.
