Handspun Shetland Wool Yarn
This yarn is not next to the skin soft by any stretch of the immagination. In fact it reminds me of my grandfather, notorious for grabbing our faces and rubbing his five o'clock shadow againsts our cheeks in greeting.
The wool roving was processed in Frankenmuth Michigan, and handspun and handpainted by our Shepard Ellen Zawada. The dye work was a play on the natural brown wool, with just a hint of the original color remaining.
In 2019 The Livestock Conservancy will be running a Shave 'Em to Save 'Em promotion for knitters, crocheters, weavers, and all fiber artist to promote the use of rare breed wools.
Zephyr Creek Farm utilizes regenerative agriculture techniques to heal the land. Our sheep live on pasture year round, utilizing holistic grazing during the growing season and bale grazing during the winter. Our passion is sustainable fibers and textiles.
