Please make sure you order enough for your project as the natural color will vary between batches. Every batch of farm yarn is unique, and there will be slight variations even in the same batch. We recommend alternating skeins as you knit or crochet if your project requires 2 or more skeins.
Every digital screen is calibrated differently. Slight variations in tone and saturation will vary from screen to screen. The actual color of your item may vary slightly from what you see on your screen.
* The Livestock Conservancy has long stated that the way to save endangered breeds of livestock is to give them a job. In the case of wool sheep, we need to start using their wool again. Because of marketing challenges, some shepherds discard or compost the wool after their annual shearing, rather than cleaning it and selling it. The SE2SE program encourages fiber artists to try using rare wools, and helps shepherds learn how to prepare their wool for sale and how to reach potential customers, thereby making it more profitable to raise heritage breeds.(https://livestockconservancy.org/get-involved/shave-em-to-save-em/)
The Livestock Conservancy is America’s leading organization working to save over 150 heritage breeds from extinction. They rely on the support of members, grants, and donations from the public to raise the $700,000 a year needed to maintain their conservation work with rare breeds of farm animals.
