Undyed yarn, Raw wool, locally knit mittens/socks from local wool
Yankee Rock Farm is the result of two childhood passions for all things sheep. Siri and Colin are first generation farmers working as shearers and shepherds in the Northeastern United States. This year they've launched a breed-specific line of undyed yarns grown entirely by their sheep. As full-time shearers, these two also work on bridging the gap between farmers and fiber artists. They collect wool from farms that would otherwise be thrown out and find products or buyers suitable for all the different fibers acquired. Practicing sustainable stewardship, they produce honest products to benefit their farm and fiber communities.
