Introducing a small batch of really special yarn!
Sustain is entirely made in the US from Merino sourced in New Mexico and Colorado and Corriedale sourced in New York. The wools are scoured in the US and then sent to Battenkill Fiber Mill for processing. Finally they are small batch dyed in my studio in Idaho.
This is a rustic 2 ply yarn with beautiful bounce and loft, which has been spun in a worsted/woolen combination that is unique and beautiful. Expect a more rugged feel to the Sustain line of yarns vs. my regular bases. This wool has a little bit higher micron count, which gives it a perfect balance of softness and durability.
Sustain 2 ply DK is a Limited Release Collection. I do not know when I will be able to get more, so enjoy this little introduction to a more rustic, untreated and domestically produced yarn while it lasts.
p.s. Don't be alarmed if you see a little bit of VM (vegetable matter)in your yarn. It's there because the scouring plant doesn't use any harsh chemicals to dissolve it, and that's pretty cool.
