Text Box:  
 100% Wool Yarn for your Historic Projects
Iím a knitter and a historian, so when I knit an item using a vintage pattern it just doesnít make sense for me to use anything but wool that is as historically accurate as possible for the period I am representing.  Unable to find exactly the sort of yarn I wanted, I made my own. 

Left Ear relaxes after an exhausting day of growing wool.  
I raise historic breeds of sheep, primarily merino, dorset and cheviot.  The sheep are raised on my small farm using 19th century farming methods whenever possible.  The wool is processed on a mill made early in the 20th century that uses the same milling methods that have been in use since the 1760s.  Finally, the wool is wound by hand into skeins.  
The purpose of this website is to help you find the most historically correct wool yarn for your particular period of history.  Youíll learn how my sheep are raised and how it differs from a modern sheep operation, how to choose the color of your yarn based on the historical period youíre representing, and how to determine how much wool youíll need for your project.  Finally, the product page will help you select your purchase and place an order, or you can use the contact page to find out my schedule of events so that you can purchase your yarn in person.
Whether you are a living history interpreter or reenactor portraying the 18th, 19th or early 20th century, a staff member or volunteer demonstrating at a museum or historic site, or if you just want to fully experience a simple part of our foremothers' daily life, my yarn will make your work much more historically accurate.  
Thank you for visiting my website!
