MeriwetherMeriwether Yarn

"Meriwether" is a locally produced yarn, spun from Montana Targhee Wool at a Wyoming fiber mill. The targhee fiber was gray, and I overdyed the medium-gray yarn with my dyes to create deep complex versions of my colorways. The yarn is soft, firmly twisted and springy. Meriwether will allow you to create beautiful mittens, hats, cowls, sweaters, vests, shawls from this that are sturdy and resist pillling.

Spry

(see also Spry115, DK wt yarn in Superwash Merino)Spry

"Spry" is a special limited edition DK weight yarn. The yarn was spun at a small Wyoming family-owned mill using local Rambouillet wool blended with 30% silk. I worked with the mill to create a firmly spun and plied 3-ply yarn that retains its next-to-the-skin softness with minimal pilling. I knit myself a cowl-necked sweater from this yarn and find it is my go-to sweater. I have worn it 2-3 times/week since I finished it in October. I wear my sweater with a crew-neck top and find the sweater collar is soft and comfortable against my neck all day, and I’m one of those sensitive types. My sweater shows little pilling after 3 months of heavy wear. Spry is a non-superwash yarn. Shown at right in Weathered Wood and Flathead Cherry Colorways.
