a.k.a. “other places to find my yarn”. “Stockists” feels like a slightly pretentious word to use here, but I couldn’t think of a more accurate one. My yarns are often an incredibly small batch affair, produced because I was inspired by the work of a designer, or because I was fascinated by a knitting technique, or because I wanted to be a part of a very cool project.
Produced in celebration of the Netloft’s Cordova Gansey Project, this 5-ply gansey yarn is spun from the island raised sheep managed by Straw’s Farm in Newcastle, Maine, and dyed the natural indigo.
For the story of this yarn, please see the post I wrote about it here.
Salt Bay mittlet kits and Straw’s Farm island Sheep fingering weight mini skein kits
New England Farm to Fiber hosted me and my yarn for a lovely trunk show during the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl. I couldn’t stay long, but I left some of my Salt Bay Mitten Kits and Mini Skein sets behind. New England Farm to Fiber has an incredible collection of farm yarns from all over New England, and I’m thrilled that my yarns are among them! (Note: my yarns are not listed on their website - so you will have to stop by in person!).
Cotswold Light Fingering weight and other yarns Suitable for Sanquhar knitting
Beth Brown Reinsel designed this gorgeous Sanquhar pattern (Winter) amongst many others. Almost all my yarns “suitable for Sanquhar knitting” go to her lovely kits. I am embarrassingly behind on my production for her, but when I make it, she will have it.
*** Update Feb. 2019 *** - I sent Beth (gorgeous!) Scottish Blackface x BFL from Two Sisters Farm in Warren, Maine, suitable for Sanquhar knitting. Her Winter kits are back in stock on her Etsy page here.
