Get ready to indulge in a colorful array of yarn that not only supports local artisans, but embodies sustainability at its core. Megs & Co believes in the power of collaborations that nurture communities and foster creativity. Meg’s quest to curate the finest fibers led her to the picturesque landscapes right in her home state of New York, where passionate wool producers care for their flocks with dedication and love. Working closely with this community, she has handpicked the most exquisite yarn for your crafting pleasure, that is aptly named Ellis.
Ellis is a light fingering weight blend of Rambouillet and Finn wool. It has a soft hand that delivers an irresistibly springy fabric that is unlike anything you have worked with before. Ellis is available in over 24 tonal colors that range from soft pastels to rich jewel tones, guaranteeing you are sure to find the perfect color for your next project.
Ellis is not just locally sourced, but locally spun too! After being meticulously hand scoured, all the fiber was sent to Greenwich, NY, to be spun at Battenkill Fibers. By using local mills, we are working together to directly support our local economy and creating local jobs, all while significantly reducing our carbon footprint compared to internationally sourced and spun yarn. This means that you get a great yarn all while supporting your local fiber community.
Whether your next project is a garment or an accessory, knit or crochet, if it includes Ellis then it is sure to be a project you will treasure.
