In 2003 I fell in love with a plush, spongy wool yarn from Oregon. I didn't know anything about the farm or even the sheep breed, I simply ordered a yarn, sight unseen, and the package captivated me.
Nine years, three books, and hundreds of yarns later, the stakes are certainly higher. Generations of sheep have come and gone, but the Oregon farm remains. I thought it fitting to return to this mythical yarn and see if it's still as good as I originally thought. Let's return to Imperial Stock Ranch for a re-swatch.
