Cobblestone Forest Fiber Pack
A quiet walk in the forest begins with our Cobblestone Forest Fiber Pack. Cobblestones are reminiscent of slower, less complicated times. The forest is an every changing landscape of natural beauty. The warm browns and greens are as natural as natural comes. These colors of the forest are for use in any fiber art project.
The Cobblestone Forest Fiber Pack features our brown-gray corespun yarn and natural trio lockspun yarn. Our marled corespun is from our brown and gray angora goats. This particular corespun has less twist than our standard corespun making for a very soft almost roving like yarn. Our corespun yarn is created at a family fiber mill in Washington.
Our lockspun yarn is created right here at the ranch. We shear our own goats and keep back a portion of mohair locks just for handspinning. Our natural trio lockspun is aptly named as it represents three of the most widely used natural colors: white, brown, and black. Natural trio lockspun yarn is made by randomly spinning the mohair of several goats.
We strive to keep our goats healthy and happy. Happy goats make happy mohair. Mohair has been prized and coveted for millennia. What makes it so special? It has a luster that is incomparable. It does not have barbs like wool making it super soft and silky. It is incredibly strong and yet so fine. Mohair comes in white and a wide array of natural colors. The natural colors have their own highlights and lowlights that can not be duplicated by dying. However, mohair does take dye very well making for intense and rich colors.
We have paired our mohair yarns with sari silk ribbon and merino wool roving. Our sari silk ribbon is from the recycled sari silk industry in India. We love how sari silk is dyed and turned into ribbons through rural co-operatives. Rural co-ops provide opportunities for villagers to earn a living wage along with improving living conditions in the village.
Merino wool roving is the gold standard wool for tapestry weaving and other fiber arts. Merino wool roving is springy and super soft. It has a beautiful sheen that no other wool can compare to.
Mohair and wool are really the perfect pair! Our fiber kits bring the best of both worlds together!!
