The wool in many of our styles is from hearty New England sheep, whose fibers are long & durable...& make really cozy sweaters. Our finer wool styles are made using a blend from the Rocky Mountains; sheep with finer wool prefer arid climates over cold, damp New England.
Our local spinners process the wool gently, so it retains its lanolin and weather-proofing. It also retains natural color & texture characteristics, so each piece is entirely unique. We like to use the rich natural colors the sheep were born with; when we do have wool dyed, our regional dye houses use only organic plant-based dyes & never dump harmful chemicals into our waterways.
