|Last week, I mentioned that many farms send their fleeces to the same spinneries to be processed in almost an identical manner. This fact means that the actual fiber content is the only true way to differentiate one yarn from the next.|
This week's yarn is a case in point. Although spun and processed in a fashion almost identical to last week's yarn (and possibly at the same Canadian spinnery), its different fiber composition produces distinctly different results.
New This Week
From sheep raised in Oregon and processed in Canada, Imperial Stock Ranch yarns are at once raw and refined. Learn more about this historic ranch and its yarns.
New in the Bou-Teeque
Foes of form-fitting tees will love our new series of standard-style Knitter's Review T-shirts. This week I unveil the first shirt, which depicts a jar of needles and niddy noddies on an old farmhouse windowsill. Below it, in simple lettering, is the Knitter's Review URL.
And coming very soon: Our knitting lady pin has a sister!
