“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Thomas Merton
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.
Peanut is one of Mary's amazing wethers, a perfect Romney gentleman. A blend of his wool, CVM lambswool, alpaca and kid mohair.
