Harvest Fiber Pack
The time of harvest ushers in the beautiful colors of fall! The colors range from bright oranges and reds - to muted browns and greens - and all the colors of ripe fruit and berries. Our Harvest Fiber Pack brings together this unique pallet of colors that are leaving summer, moving into fall, and transitioning into winter. These colors have a warmth and vibrancy that makes fall so beautiful! These colors of harvest time are for use in any fiber art project.
The Harvest Fiber Pack features our own marled tan and gray corespun mohair yarn that has been hand dyed in a gorgeous array of colors. The colors have a depth and warmth that can only come from over dying natural colored mohair. Our marled corespun is from our light 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.
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 making for beautiful yarn left natural or dyed.
We have paired our mohair yarn 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!!
