Handspun Yarns from Maggie's Farm

Spinning in the Field

The sheep are an integral part of my handspinning. They don't always supervise me this closely, but there is a great connectedness between my animals and my handspun yarns. I have quickly learned that their wool is a wonderful, renewable resource. Through the use of sustainable agricultural practices the sheep have thrived. The wool they produce is full of life and luster and they diligently work at growing long, soft locks that dye beautifully and give me great pleasure while spinning.

I have designed five repeatable colorways. It was my intention to offer a product that was more predictable than a "one-off" skein while still holding true to the character and uniqueness of handspun yarns. Each hand-dyed single is plied with a single of one of the natural colors. This allows me to offer twenty unique colors as well as a gorgeous range of naturals. The handspun, natural yarn samples are displayed above. They are also two-ply yarns. They are not dyed, but are representative of the natural fleece colors available from my flock.

Maggie's Farm handspun is sold by the skein. All yarn is two-ply, sport/worsted weight also known as DK. It knits at about 5.5 stitches to the inch on size 6 needles. As always, check gauge before starting your garment. As in all hand-dyed yarns, variances will take place from dyelot to dyelot. If you are going to be using Maggie's Farm yarns in a project requiring several skeins specify this with your order so a special run of sufficient quantity can be done to complete your project. Each skein is wound on an antique skein winder that has been handed down in our family for four generations. An average skein contains 200 yards. The hand-dyed, handspun yarns are priced at 25 cents per yard and the handspun, natural yarns are priced at 20 cents per yard.

I strive to keep all colors in stock, but this is sometimes not possible. Should you select a color that is temporarily out of stock we will make every effort to have your order within three weeks. Contact me with you specific needs.
