Wool Trip yarn is hand-dyed, and will have variegated colors with light and dark streaks. We recommend alternating skeins to prevent pooling.

Wool Trip is the result of a summer long adventure my family had producing our own small batch of yarn.  The wool is sourced from Noon Family Sheep Farm, an organic sheep farm near our home in Maine.  We drove the wool to Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont, where we got a lesson in how woolen spun spinning works.  Lastly we traveled to Quebec, Canada and hand dyed our precious skeins with the husband-and-wife team of Julie Asselin and Jean-Francois Mallett.

The result is a durable yarn with a pleasant hand and it's own unique personality. Like the people who put their skills and effort into making it, it's warm, friendly, and hard working. It's beautiful without being fussy. And it smells great!
