Lydia Christiansen shares the secrets of sustainable, small batch wool straight from her mill on Whidbey Island. Explore modern topics, questions, and techniques affecting fiber farms, cottage mills, and discerning hand crafters.
In this episode we’ll tell you about our relentless quest for balance; both in yarn and in life. We’ll also discuss our house DK yarn we call Verdant, and dip our toes into the history of a breed of sheep that might be one of the closest breeds to royalty that there is in the sheep world, Rambouillet.
Dive into the secrets behind Finnsheep. Hear about the fiber and breed itself, and chat with two shepherdesses who tend the wool I’ve been spinning this month. I’ve even got a hot tip on where you can purchase these brand new small batch yarns.
Hear about the secrets behind one of our top selling yarns, Josef & Anni. Learn how the yarn came to be and other stories behind the names. We’ll take a close look at the Targhee sheep breed, one of our local family farms, as well as the original Targhee namesake.
