Welcome to our Farm to Fiber Collection of hand-spun Corriedale Wool Yarn provided by our New Hampshire neighbor's Corriedale Sheep which have been raised with the highest level of care and respect.
What sets hand-spun wool yarn apart is its unique character. It's not uniform like machine-spun yarn; rather, it carries the quirks and irregularities that come from the human touch. This gives it a distinct texture and visual appeal, with variations in thickness and sometimes even the presence of slubs or subtle inconsistencies, adding to its artisanal charm.
The yarn's tactile quality is often unmatched—soft, cozy, and retaining the natural properties of wool, such as warmth and breathability. Hand-spun yarn tends to hold onto the lanolin from the wool, giving it a lovely, earthy scent and a slight sheen.
Artisans and crafters prize hand-spun wool yarn for its versatility. It's well-suited for various crafting projects, lending itself beautifully to knitting, crocheting, weaving, and other textile arts. Its individuality often adds depth and character to finished pieces, making each creation a testament to the artistry behind the yarn itself.
Overall, hand-spun wool yarn is more than just a crafting material; it's a testament to the art of spinning, a celebration of tradition, and an embodiment of the unique beauty found in imperfections.
