Twirl Petals

Sold Out

Twirl Yarn Petals! We love this story....  each skein is handled from fleece to skein with the utmost loving care. We have made many projects with this yarn and its partner Twirl. Twirl Petals is a combination of all the softest fleeces of  the animals on the ranch. We have made sweaters, mitts, scarves, cowls, socks, hats, baby clothes, color knitting, felted items, and home decor (looks great just sitting in a bowl).

Twirl yarn comes from a small company in Napa Valley California . It is a world of sheep, angora goats, alpacas, llamas, a few angora rabbits, and Mary. Some of Mary's most valuable tools are her livestock guardians. Twirl Ranch uses guardian dogs, donkeys, llamas and alpacas! Mary uses the fibers the animals produce to make a rustic yarn that is the culmination of the Twirl Ranch land. Many of the plant dyes used are grown right on the ranch. Mary raises her animals to graze on the land, and they in turn produce incredible fibers that she then washes, and blends together, then takes to her local wool mill, Yolo Wool Mill, for spinning into yarn. Then, once home, she dyes, or uses the natural colors of the fibers to make into 50 gram balls for happy knitting fingers. Mary's intent is to offer as many *good experiences* as possible to the beings that touch her fibers. To the animals, to herself, to the mill, to the folks that sell her yarns, to the knitters and to the wearers of the finished product.
