Wool and Wool Blend House Yarns from Southeast Ohio Fiberworks
Here you'll find unique breed-specific wool or wool blend yarn for your next knitting, crochet, or weaving project. All house yarns originate on east coast and mid-westfarms and are specially selected by our owner. We hope to source locally at least 80% of our house wool products from southeastOhio farms by 2021.
These are generally one-of-a-kind wool products from small batch processing of a few fleeces at a time. Our fiber products consist of wool, wool and exotic blends, exotics, natural and undyed or hand-dyed. Occasionally we'll add silk, bamboo, or nylon for structural purposes (i.e., silk or bamboo for drape).
We define "wool" in terms of any mammal fiber and includes sheep, goats, rabbits, alpaca, llama, dog, and more. Are you a fiber farmer?Contact usto talk about your animals' wool. Even those bred for meat have nice usable fiber!
Are you considering raising animals for their wool? We can help advise you on best farm practices for the finest alpaca to coarser utilitarian wools.
Hint #1: mature weeds with a variety of stickers devalue a fiber product if they get into it. To get the most money for your fiber, make sure you maintain (i.e., mow) your grazing fields to prevent cockle burrs and stick-tights from marring an otherwise beautiful fleece.
