The above luxury fibers
come from handspinners' flocks in the United States. The animals
are respectfully raised and gently sheared. The mohair and alpaca rovings and yarns
have been processed by a Colorado mill. The wool yarns are processed in U.S. mills. These unique yarns are not stocked in any craft store or yarn shop.
CORMO wool is from the Cormo Sheep. It is a
fine, long-stapled, and very soft wool with extra bounce and memory. I have hand-dyed these yarns which have been raised and processed in the U.S. by Elsa Wool Company. In the undyed form, they have been showcased by Clara Parkes in her fiber book Book of Yarn.
BUFFALO GOLD LUX SPORT 6 contains the down from the American Bison. The down is softer, finer and stronger than almost all luxury fibers and it can be considered hypoallergenic when clean. Lux Sport is a blend of 45% bison down, 20% cashmere, 20% silk, and 15% tencel. I have overdyed this cabled yarn from its grayish/brown state for truly unique colors.
The inventory of colors and blends fluctuates. Please contact Kathy for current availabilities. There will be a wide range of custom possibilities.
