These gorgeous yarns come straight from Colorado where sixth generation ranchers Elana Miller-Kuile and her father Alan have been raising sheep and tending the land. As Elena explains on their website: "Cactus Hill Farm is a multi-generational farm that was established in 1867 by Hispano settlers moving north when Colorado was still part of Mexico." The farm is a largely organic operation that relies on age-old irrigation methods and they raise a wild and wooly flock of sheep from many different breeds. We're lucky enough to have several of their natural yarns in the shop: a lovely cross of California Variegated Mutant (CVM) and Wensleydale in four colors (please see the other listing) and a CVM/Merino cross in light grey. These yarns are perfect for sweaters and any winter accesssory your heart might desire.
CVM/Merino skeins are a DK weight at 3oz and 200 yds each and $25
