National and Local - a perfect ply

We at Yarn & Yoga are strongly committed to supporting our local shepherds, spinners and dyers of yarn. We now showcase ten local yarns, each with its own story and charm - often you can see photos and names of the very sheep or alpaca or llama or angora goat who produced the skein in your hand! We have the following yarns for your very special project:

·      Wayfarer Farm from Fayston, 80% alpaca and 20% merino, in natural colors.

·      Three Sheep Farm from Monkton,100% wool, in natural colors. This yarn is shorn from sheep who live out their days at the farm.

·      Layn Farms from Monkton, 100% alpaca, natural colors.

·      Farm Yarn from Montgomery, 50% alpaca, 50% wool, natural colors plus dark green, burgundy, and midnight blue.

Meeting House Farm:  All this wool is from New England sheep.  The Shepard-Pohlman Family, who live in Lincoln, raise their own sheep and then take their fleeces to Maine to be blended with fleece from around New England.  The colors in season are the same large dye-lot, so finding enough for a sweater is easy.  We have plenty and can "get more where that came from!"

This sweater knit with Meeting House Farm wool, was worn, but not worn out as you can clearly see, by two children over 25 years ago, and the mittens felted up beautifully.
