Freshwater Fibers is a delectable yarn produced by The Michigan Fiber Cooperative (check out their site for more information about the farms!). It is a worsted/aran weight yarn made up of 50% alpaca and 50% merino raised right here in Michigan and processed at Stonehedge Fiber Mill and Hoof-to-Hanger Fiber Mill. Each skein has 200 yards/113 grams. We have taken their yarn and dyed it in our gorgeous Michigan palette as with our own Smitten yarn.
*with regard to our Natural and Botanical dyed yarns: It is a labor of love for us; the colors are dependent on many characteristics of the soil, season, and timing. We are unable to dye at a production level with the natural dyes and instead will make available the bounty of each season as we create it.
