Spinning Supplies And Yarn

New!  

Lamb Camp Legacy Yarn











This limited edition single batch yarn was grown on Tring Farm (Maisie, Ewen and B. Willard's home farm :-) in Harrison County, Kentucky, by the sons and daughters of two of our very favorite sheep, Rocky and Jared, who now live here.  

Rocky and Jared are Cotswold crosses and the ewes are crosses of North Country Cheviots and Polypays and maybe a little Dorset, so the blend is a lovely mix of crimpy down type wool with a lovely long wool drape and luster. 

I've knit a sample of each color and dyed and knit the Forest for the Trees hat.  I just finished the Agate Cove Hat using all three natural colors.  I also wove a doll house rug for a friend and I am very happy with this fun and useful yarn.  I hope you enjoy it as well. 

Each skein of DK weight wool yarn is 250 yards and weighs approximately 3.5 ounces (grays) and 4 ounces (white - the heavier end of DK).  I can also skein off unwashed yarn for weaving (for maximum fulling).  

$18 per skein

How to order :-)


Drop Spindle Kits





Each kit contains a hand crafted spindle, two balls (2 oz.) of easy to spin roving and instructions with pictures. I am happy to teach you to use it as well. I'm trying to get up my nerve to record a short instructional video, but until then, just email to set up a time to come out to the farm.

Used Spinning and Weaving Equipment


I occasionally offer used equipment for sale.  Currently in the shop I have an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel and a Louet drum carder.  The owner is looking for some missing parts for the drum carder, but the wheel has been tuned up and is in good working condition and comes with 4 bobbins, a lazy kate, flick carder and niddy noddy.  Email for more details.



Roving 



I like to have almost everything processed into ready to spin roving soon after washing.  We try to keep several Jacob fleeces (medium wool, easy to spin, beautiful colors) in varying shades of white, gray and black, a few white Texel crosses (the longer end of medium, a nice crisp yarn, very easy to spin) and some Cotswold (nice luster and halo, easy to spin, dyes wonderfully) in stock.

We still have some 2019 roving in stock, including Chocula, Blossom, Bullwinkle, PPPP, Moptop.  I might part with some Jared roving.  There are a couple "rescue" fleeces (colored fleeces from Bill, our sheep shearer) and a couple others from Tring Farm.  I also occasionally offer limited amounts of other special sheep from my S.A.B.L.E. (stash accumulation beyond life expectancy ;-).  Please email for availability.  I really can't spin them all.  Really.

$3 per ounce (4 oz. minimum) or $44 per pound


Lamb Camp Yarn

Sold Out...but the pictures are still so darn cute ;-).



You love their lambs.  You'll love their yarn.  Pre-played with by baby Liddy!  Remember that funny series of pictures?  Go back and look.  The beauty of browsing :-).






Awesome Lamb Camp Yarn hat and mittens knit by Karen Battersby :-).

The Lamb Camp Yarn was spun from the ewes at Final Frontier Farm in Paris, Kentucky, a favorite Lamb Camp destination.  They are Keebler, Blossom, Lila and Liddy's moms, cousins, sisters, aunties...

The majority of the flock is a Texel cross with some Polypay, Columbia and Suffok mixed in with some wool breed influence from Cotswold, Wensleydale, Border Leicester and Finn.  Like the ewes themselves, the wool is a beautiful combination of sturdy softness and no nonsense work ethic, perfect for sweaters, vest, hats, mittens, woven throws...  This semi-lustrous yarn dyes wonderfully.




Each worsted weight skein is approximately 195 yards and weighs approximately 3.5 ounces.  You may find some bits of hay and straw mixed in, but that picks out and it's comforting to know that it wasn't dissolved out with strong chemicals.

 $14 per skein Five or more skeins $13 each

Knit local and help support local sheep and shepherds :-).
