|I'm constantly on the lookout for new and interesting yarns.|
Although my office is bursting with untested skeins from manufacturers around the world, I have a soft spot for yarns that come straight from the family farm.
While on the surface they may seem to lack flash and flair, these yarns came into being through hard work, dedication, and often the pursuit of dreams.
This week I'll show you a few of my favorite farm yarn finds, including a brand new one from Montana.
New This Week
