Origin is a 3ply, DK-weight yarn, woolen spun at a small family run mill. After spinning, the wool is washed in a stream on the property and hung to dry. The fiber is sourced from small flocks in villages surrounding the city in Germany where Raincloud & Sage is located.
This is fiber that previously was not being used but rather often thrown away or burned, due to the fact that it has little value to wool brokers and can be difficult for shepherds with small herds to sell. We’re excited that Ruth and her team have turned this existing resource into a useable product!
This is rustic farm yarn- it's woolly and sheepy and comes in two undyed, natural colorways. To ensure your project doesn't felt, we recommend washing by hand, as this is a non-superwash yarn.
