Luxurious yarn for the discriminating knitter and crocheter.
This amazing yarn is the first run of the Michigan Fiber Cooperative members. Seven farmers contributed their alpaca and merino wool to create 1,000 skeins of Fresh Water Fiber yarn. We have less than 500 left!
Each skein is 200 yards, 4 ounces and 3-ply. One skein will make a hat and mitts from n. anne designs (the pattern is exclusive to FWF yarn).
We have PayPal buttons below, but we are happy to accommodate larger orders. Please call: 517-372-1500.
Your yarn came from the following Michigan Farms: Eagle Ledge Farm, Grand Ledge; Fredenberg Farm, Munith; Happy Goat Lucky Ewe, Mason; Harris Farm, South Lyon; Miller's Llama Land, Potterville; Tillers International, Scotts; Via Verde Farm, Byron Center; Maplewood Farm Alpacas, Charlevoix; Zodiac Ranch, Milford
Stonehedge Fiber Mill in East Jordan, Michigan processed our fiber. Fresh Water Fiber Yarn was processed in the same exquisite manner as the famous Shepherd’s Wool. Deb McDermott is not only a processor, she has been working with fiber and fiber animals for over 25 years. She is a shepherdess, spinner, and fiber artist.
Textile artist Nancy McRay designed a lovely hat and fingerless glove pattern to go with this yarn. Contact your local yarn store and ask them to carry our yarn, or order on-line today. We know you will enjoy this yarn!
This locally grown yarn is a great gift for the novice or seasoned fiber artist interested in both crochet or knitting! Think about who you know, think birthdays, holidays, teacher gifts, gratitude, special events, graduation, celebrate a new grandchild, knit in the hospital next to your loved one, comfort... there are so many times and places for this yarn.
This yarn is made of the most luxurious fiber grown in Michigan. It is 50 % white alpaca and 50 % merino. The animals were lovingly raised on the small farms identified on the inside label. Your purchase supports Michigan fiber farmers and ensures the growers receive fair-market value for their raw fiber.
These farmers and the Michigan Fiber Cooperative will continue the tradition of fiber production because of your support. Thank YOU!
10 skeins is enough to make a man's raglan sweater, or a woman's cable knit sweater, with enough left over for hats and mittens!
