The fleece for this yarn comes from Buckwheat Blossom farm, a horse powered biodynamic farm in Wiscasset Maine. In my area of midcoast Maine, coopworth are popular with small organic farmers and folks who want a small spinning flock. They are sturdy, low fuss animals who do well on marginal pasture, tend towards twins and triplets and are good mothers. They also produce a long staple, lustrous wool that is a wonderfully easy to spin and frankly, gorgeous.
Like all my dyed yarn, I used only plant based dyes (organic when possible) and a few assists to achieve bright, light fast colors.
