Twirl Ditto - Urubamba's Lavender
Regular price $17.00
Mary of Twirl Yarn has a wonderful sprawling ranch in Napa and lovingly raises the animals whose fleeces become this special yarn.
Mary describes Twirl as a dance. It is a gesture and response. It begins with the land, and moves from the soil to the plants and animals that live in the place.
It's not work, it is a pleasure, a gift, and a way of life. It is a dance that encompasses stewardship, husbandry, artistic endeavor, compassion and commitment.
The breeds of sheep she chooses to be part of her family are luster longwool breeds.
She strives to make a yarn that is luminescent, strong, and has a hand that you want to engage in using to create a garment that has a presence. Authentic to the animals that make this fiber.
Uribamba is one of Mary's favourite huacaya alpacas. Here he comes together with his lamb friends Hercules and Hugo, and kid angora goat friends, blended with baby alpaca.
