Autumn Fiber Pack
One look at the Autumn Fiber Pack and you are transported to a day of colorful leaves blanketing the ground outside. Autumn is a time of rich, deep, warm vibrant colors. It is a time of crisp air and warm campfires. Our Autumn Fiber Pack is begging to bring the warm colors of fall to your next project!
The Autumn Fiber Pack features our khaki corespun yarn and brown ombré lockspun yarn. Our khaki corespun is from our light brown angora goats. 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 brown ombré lockspun is a combination of browns from several different goats. Here at the ranch, brown mohair is our specialty and we have so many lovely shades of brown to make this signature handspun mohair yarn.
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. 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 is the gold standard wool for tapestry weaving and other fiber arts. Merino wool 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!!
