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.

This yarn is a blend of Pansy, an orphan from the hard winter of 2016, and her playmates. A blend of lambswool, alpaca and kid mohair, and a pinch of cotton. Naturally dyed.
