Vintage No. 1, the first custom yarn blend from Middle Brook Fiberworks, is now for sale! For the fingering-weight, woolen-spun yarn, Anne hand picked fleeces from Shetland and CVM (California Variegated Mutant) sheep, raised on a small farm in Pennsylvania that Anne eventually purchased her own lambs from. She added a bit of shimmer to the three natural shades with silk — golden muga for the Chestnut and Beech, and tussah for the Almond — and had it all processed at Gurdy Run Woolen Mill in Halifax, Pennsylvania.
There’s still some room in the virtual bus/train/plane for you to come along next year on a journey with the ultimate indie yarn club. Where We Knit 2017 brings together four dyer/designers teams — The Woolen Rabbit & Anne Hanson, Eden Cottage Yarns & Mindy Wilkes, Three Fates Yarns & MK Nance and Spun Right Round & Casapinka — to create exlusive colorways and accompanying accessory patterns inspired by where they knit. Space is limited, so sign up soon!
