snowdrop. Throughout my childhood, my mother
planted snowdrops by every home we lived in, and they signaled
the imminent arrival of spring. Their little white blooms pushing
up through the melting snow let me know it was time to throw
open windows, breathe in fresh air, and bask in sunshine. Its in
these days of waiting impatiently for the warmth of spring that we
revisit sweater weather by tossing bulky coats aside and striding
outside in our handknits. We brighten up our days with fresh colors
and lighter fibers and wake up our gardens with a shawl wrapped
around our shoulders.
On a chilly day in early November, the first snow arrived in
northern Colorado. Naturally, we had our Interweave Knits Spring
2016 photo shoot scheduled the following day at the delightful
Lyons Farmette. The first snows being much like the last snows,
we took advantage of this spring-like situation. As the snow melted
around us that day, we fed and played with the curious alpacas,
goats, and chickens, who were probably wondering what the pretty
ladies in shawls and sweaters were doing in their pens. They were
very interested in our photographer, Nate, who endured constant
sniffing while snapping photos. It was adorable. Our gracious hosts,
Betsy and Mike, let us have full run of their beautiful farmette and
had a woodstove burning in their reception area for us to warm our
chilled bones. In the golden light of that day we captured Spring
Thaw (page 12), full of homespun, locally grown yarns.
For this issue, weve collected fibers from small farms and mills
across the country and brought them to the pages of Interweave
Knits. Knitters make up a dedicated community of people united
by a passion for fiber and the preservation of an ancient art. We
often celebrate the companies that bring us yarns, but its also good
to return to the roots of our craft by revisiting how these special
yarns are created (Where It Comes From, page 10) and exploring
the lives of the devoted people who still raise and make yarn the old
way (Spring Thaw sidebars, pages 13, 15). We chose Lyons Farmette
for our location because the owners grow and manufacture their
own fiber and yarn. What better place to shoot a farm-to-fingers
story? The Farmette holds an annual Wool Day in October that lets
participants explore fibers across several craftsincluding spinning, knitting, and dyeingwhile enjoying wholesome farm fun. To
learn more, visit www.bit.ly/WoolDay. I cant think of a better way to
spend a day.
May the snowdrops of spring bloom outside your window as you
leaf through these pages. I hope you find inspiration and beauty in
them, as I have.

Cormo Wool
BY HANNAH BAKER

Cormo is a special breed of sheep developed in the 1960s in


Tasmania by I.K. Downie. Downie bred Corriedale with
superine Saxon Merino sheep to achieve
high fertility, fast growth, and
heavy f leece weight. Cormo
s h e e p a re m e d i u m - s i z e d
compared to other breeds, which
means they consume less food and
generally require less maintenance
than other breeds. Cormo sheep are
raised in Australia, Argentina, China, the
United States, Italy, and Belgium. Cormo
wool knits up into a versatile fabric that
maintains stunning stitch deinition.

Small Footprints: Bare Naked Wools


BY ANNE HANSON

As a designer, I felt that I had virtually unlimited yarn possibilities for creating garments, accessories, and fabrics. But
once I was introduced to handspinning, I began to dream furtherof designing my own yarns. Speciically, I was drawn
to the natural, undyed, minimally processed yarns that represent for me the exciting depth and breadth of the American
iber story. Today, my yarn labelBare Naked Woolsofers ten unique lines that showcase more than ifteen diferent
plant and animal ibers. Although the natural mission is environmentally responsible, the approach is also a conscious
choice to unite consumers in partnership with family farms and artisan iber mills.
To produce that quality of fiber, the
work of raising, breeding, and caring for
fiber animals requires both responsibility
and passion. Our mill partners do their
best to procure carefully sheared and
skirted materials from local farms, and
the entire production process is carried
out at one facility. Keeping production
contained within a small radius ensures
that the fiber is carefully and respectfully
handled at every stage, with the smallest
environmental impact. It takes just four
steps for fiber to travel from sheep to
yarn consumer.
The diminishing American farming
community translates to a decline in
quality for many products, including yarn.
When consumers choose quality products
10 SPRING 2016 { Interweave Knits }

that support the American farming industry, families that own farms and mills
experience the positive impact directly.
At Bare Naked Wools, we take great pride
in working with family-owned farms and
mills to make a difference in communities
across the country and to positively affect
our national economy. The people we work
with are our neighbors, friends, and community members.
Almost all the wool and fiber used
in Bare Naked Wools are raised in the
United States. Additional fibers, such as
silk and hemp, are sourced offshore from
responsible companies that ensure the
fiber was grown/produced in ideal conditions. This search for the highest-quality
goods has led us to create beautiful, use-

ful, and versatile yarn lines that elevate


the experience of knitting, crochet, and
weaving. The palette of neutral colors in
pure, undyed wool is so wide, in fact, that
the yarns can be assembled and reassembled in nearly endless striking combinations. The possibilities for creating sleek,
sophisticated handknits are unlimited.
ANNE HANSON is a lifelong knitter with a
background in fashion and graphic design. She
teaches and writes about knitting, spinning, and
designing at her blog, www.knitspot.com. Anne
lives and works in Ohio with David, who loves
wool, too; together they are the owners and
creators of the renowned Knitspot yarn clubs
and Bare Naked Wools yarn collection.

Featuring natural fibers that are thoughtfully


grown, sourced, and processed brings us
back to the heart of heritage knitting

On Nash Island of coastal Maine, a century-old flock


of sheep roams freely to graze on seaweed, with
fleeces that smell of sea air. In the fall, shearers
from the family-owned Starcroft Fiber Mills come
for the fleece, and in the spring, they return for
lambing. Otherwise, the flock is left on its own to
bathe in the coastal mists. The Nash Island

Shawl features Nash Island wool blended with


cloud-like angora. The fir trees along the border of
the shawl reflect the landscape of coastal Maine.

S ta r c r o f t Fi b e r M i l l s
BY LISA JACOBS

When Jenny Tirone moved to Nash Island


with her lighthouse-keeper father in 1916, she
brought her petsa flock of sheep. Downeast
Maine has a tradition of keeping livestock on
islands, where they have provided food and wool
for coastal residents. Jennys flock flourished,
and after the lighthouse was decommissioned in
1936, she and her husband bought Nash Island
and continued raising sheep. A century later, the
Nash Island flock still drinks dew from meadow
grass and grazes on seaweed at the shore.
In 2003, Jani Estelle, owner of Starcroft Fiber
Mills, recognized the quality of the Nash Island
fleeces and approached the current owner of the
flock, Alfie Wakeman, about producing yarn from
Nash Island wool. Since then, Jani has created
three lines of yarn spun exclusively from the
flock. She and Alfie have improved the quality of
the fleeces by breeding the hardy island ewes
with adaptable Coopworth rams. Today, the
finest lambs wool is blended with angora for
next-to-the-skin Nash Island Fog yarn, while
the soft ewe wool becomes DK and worstedweight yarn.
Back at her studio, Jani carefully sorts and processes each lock of wool and spins it into yarn.
Then, using large lobster pots, she dyes one
sweaters worth at a time in colorways inspired
by the Maine coastline. The yarn can be ordered
from her website, www.starcroft.moonfruit.com,
or from two Maine boutique websites: Clementine, in Rockland, www.clementineme.com, and
One Lupine Fiber Arts, in Bangor, www
.onelupine.com.
To read more about Janis island adventures,
visit her blog at www.starcroft.blogspot.com.

The Saxon Merino yarn featured in the Catskill


Pullover (at right) works beautifully to create stitch
definition that brings the herringbone pattern to life.
This fingering-weight yarn is hand-dyed in small
batches; the slight variations in color add depth to the
overall effect. Mary Anne Benedetto. PAGE 32.

O n Cat s k i l l M e r i n o
BY MARY ANNE BENEDET TO

Not far from New York City, yet a world away,


resides a flock of Saxon Merino sheep under
the watchful eye of Eugene Wyatt. The flock,
now numbering more than 400 sheep, originates from five world-class Ultrafine wool sires
imported from Australia in 1990. The wool from
these sheep is superfine and soft to the touch,
but the fiber is broad enough to resist pilling on
a garment. The two-ply fingering-weight yarn
used in the Catskill Pullover is a dream to work
with, and it holds stitch definition beautifully.
Catskill Merinos website (www.catskillmerino.com) offers a wealth of information,
as well as beautiful prints of Eugenes beloved
sheep in the sites print gallery. The wool is
available in five weights, from lace to super
bulky. A completely American-made product,
the shorn fleeces are sent to Green Mountain
Spinnery in Vermont to be spun. The finished
fiber is returned to the farm, where the dyepots
are overseen to produce a beautiful range of
naturally and citric-dyed colors. All the yarns are
available through the website, as well ason
weekendsat New York City farmers markets.
Eugenes blog is a must read. He writes on a
diverse range of subjects, from life on the farm
to the micron counts of fibers. He offers cooking
tips and recipes, reports on his many museum
trips, and covers details of the hand dyeing. He
also reveals a particular affinity for Proust.
In Knitters Review, Clara Parke writes, This is
the ultimate kind of farm yarn. It both is something and it represents something. It tells a story,
and it comes from people who care deeply
about their animals, from their quality of life to
the quality of fiber and meat that they produce.
According to Eugene, Although raising Saxon
Merino sheep sounds like a business, thats to
fool you: its really a love affair.

The Blue Ridge Sweater melds Aran textures and cables


with a round yoke and a multiseasonal wool and cotton blend
yarn; the relative lightness of the yarn and the lace panels
incorporate the yoke decreases into the stitch panels higher
on the yoke than usual, giving the sweater a slight blouse
effect. Angela Hahn. PAGE 36. YARN Juniper Moon Farm

NOTES

shawl is worked from the


This
center neck down, with a garter edge.

Increases are worked along edges and


also evenly spaced over body of shawl,
giving a crescent shape. The lower lace
section has extra increases along the
sides, to create a more extreme curve
than the upper body of the shawl has.
Do not break main color yarn at color
changes. Carry main color yarn loosely
up wrong side of work until it is needed
again.
The bind-off should be worked loosely
to result in enough stretch over the
large expanse of the edge. If necessary,
use a size 10 (6.5 mm) needle for the
bind-off row.
As the shawl is being worked it may
seem that it wont lie flat, but once
the yarn is soaked in water and then
blocked, the fibers relax into the
crescent shape.

separately in the round, then the
sleeves and body are joined to work the

When working the yoke shaping,
change to shorter circular needle when

The body can be lengthened or shortened, and sleeves can be lengthened, in
multiples of 12 rounds, which is about
1" in length.
The Cable and Bobble and Lace charts
alternate around the sleeves. When
working increases, first work them
into the Cable and Bobble (Lace, Lace)
chart that already has partial stitches
until that chart is complete, then begin
the next Lace (Cable and Bobble, Cable

43", there wont be enough stitches
increased to complete the full width
of the chart. For size 52", increase to
complete the Cable and Bobble chart,
then begin the next Lace chart (which
wont be completed).

This

raglan increases. A circular needle


is used to accommodate the large
number of stitches.
German short-rows are used to curve
the back and sides of the capelet.
The short rows are worked from the
widest to the narrowest and it can
be helpful to use a removable stitch
marker to mark the position of the
previous turn to ensure you dont lose
your position as you are working.
When working lace increases, work
the increased stitches in stockinette
stitch until you have three stitches to
make up another pattern repeat, then
work stitches in pattern.

BY BRISTOL IV Y

- PAGE 66 -

hort-rows, in essence, are partial rows of knitting. You can use short-rows to add height in places where
you need or want it and to turn corners and create curves in your knitting (which is a predominantly linear
and angular art form). We all created them accidentally in our irst days of knitting, when we forgot which direction
we were going and went back the way we had come without completing the row. Now, as then, a spot appears where
the extra height causes a gap between the twice-worked stitches and the unworked stitches. In this article, I describe
a few techniques for closing that gap to create the best visual presentation.
GERMAN SHORT-ROWS:

Figure 1

Figure 2

German short-rows are a new variation


on short-rows, one that has become popular in recent years. Through an ingenious
manipulation of the fabric, both a slipped
stitch and a lifted stitch are created at the
same time. Therefore, German short-rows
create about as little looseness as shadow
wraps (see page 47), and they result in
seamless-looking, smooth fabric.
HOW TO WORK GERMAN SHORT-ROWS:

1. Knit or Purl row: At the end of the


partial row, turn the work. Slip one
purlwise from the left needle to the
right needle (Figure 1). Bring the working yarn up and over the top of the right
needle and gently tug. Doing so will distort the slipped stitch, shortening the
loop of the stitch itself and wrapping
the two parts of the stitch over the top
of the needle, making it look as though
there are two stitches sitting very close
to each other on the needle (Figure 2).
When you encounter this double stitch
on a subsequent row, work the two legs
of the stitch together as if they were
one stitch (Figure 3). Figure 4 shows a
finished swatch.

WRAP-AND-TURN SHORT-ROWS:

HOW TO WRAP-AND-TURN:

Probably the most common short-row


technique is wrapping and turning. It
involves wrapping a loop of working yarn
around the stitch adjacent to the partial
row. When you come back to that stitch
later, the wrap is worked together with
the wrapped stitch so that the wrap sits
on the wrong side of the work. Because
wraps add some extra yarn to the fabric,
they can create loose spots in your knitting. I reserve wrap-and-turn for projects
such as knitted lace that have open fabric
in which the extra looseness wont be
noticeable.

1. Knit row: At the end of a partial row,


slip the next stitch purlwise with the
yarn in back (Figure 5). Bring the yarn
to the front between the needles and
return the stitch to the left needle
(Figure 6). Turn the work and orient
the yarn as needed for the next row
(to the back of the work for a knit row,
to the front for a purl row) (Figure 7).
When you encounter the wrap on a
subsequent knit row, insert the righthand needle into the wrap, then into
the knit stitch, and knit them together
(Figure 8).

2. Purl row: With the yarn in front, slip


the next stitch purlwise (Figure 9).
Bring the yarn to the back between the
needles and return the stitch to the left
needle (Figure 10). Turn the work and
orient the yarn as needed for the next
row (Figure 11). When you encounter
the wrap on a subsequent purl row,
pick up the wrap and place it on the left
needle, and purl the stitch and the wrap
together (Figure 12). Figure 13 shows a
finished swatch.

JAPANESE SHORT-ROWS:

Japanese short-rows are my favorite


short-row variation because they can be
used on a plain fabric without adding any
looseness. They involve both lifting and
slipping: instead of creating a loop of yarn,
you place a locking stitch marker on the
working yarn at the turning edge of the
partial row, then use that stitch marker to
pull a loop out of the working fabric when
youre ready to complete the short-row. You
also slip the first stitch at the beginning of
the next partial row, which snugs up any
looseness there. Because Japanese

Figure 16

Figure 18

short-rows pull yarn from within the


fabric itself, you dont loosen your fabric.
HOW TO WORK JAPANESE
SHORT-ROWS:

1. Knit or Purl row: Place the stitch marker


around the working yarn at the end of
the partial row (Figure 14). Turn the
work, slip one purlwise, then work the
next stitch, making sure the stitch
marker is between the slipped stitch
and the stitch just worked (Figure 15).
When you encounter the stitch marker
on a subsequent row, pull the stitch

ABOUT SHORT ROWS?
If youve ever knitted a sweater or socks,
chances are youve knit short-rows for shoulder
and heel shaping.
Even if you havent used short-rows for shaping,
you can easily learn how with Nancie Wisemans
workshop video. Nancie shows exactly how to
knit short-rows, which she describes simply as
half-way-down knitting.

marker and place the resulting loop


of yarn on the left needle (Figure 16).
Remove the stitch marker and work the
stitch and the loop together (Figure 17).
Figure 18 shows a finished swatch.
Similar techniques: Sunday short-rows, unslipped Japanese short-rows. The former uses
pieces of scrap yarn instead of stitch markers
to help pull the loops onto the needle; the latter
doesnt slip the first stitch after turning.

SHADOW WRAPS:

Shadow wraps are, in my opinion, the


least visible short-rows from the front.
Theyre created differently from other
short-rows. Although there is lifting, it
occurs within the structure of a stitch
that has already been created. This
approach limits the looseness shadow
wraps add to the fabric. Even though you
add about a stitchs worth of yarn, it is
locked into place by how the wrap is created. Therefore, no looseness spills into
the fabric around it.
HOW TO WORK SHADOW WRAPS:

1. Knit row: At the end of a partial row, insert


the tip of the right needle from back to
front into the top of the stitch in the row
below the next stitch on the left needle.
Place the stitch on the left needle and knit
into it (Figure 19). Transfer the stitch from
the right needle to the left needle without
twisting it. You now have two stitches
sprouting from a single stitch (Figure 20).
Turn the work and complete the next row.
When you encounter the double stitch on
a subsequent knit row, knit the two parts
of the stitch together (Figure 21).

2. Purl row: At the end of a partial row,


slip the next stitch purlwise to the right
needle, then insert the tip of the left needle up through the purl bump in the row
below the slipped stitch (Figure 22) and
purl it (Figure 23). Transfer the double
stitch to the left needle (Figure 24). Turn
the work and complete the next row.
When you encounter the double stitch
on a subsequent purl row, purl the two
parts of the stitch together (Figure 25).
Figure 26 shows a finished swatch.

These four short-row techniques are just a


few of those available. Be sure to experiment to see which technique works for the
kind of fabric you like to produce. I hope
this tutorial will help you find the perfect
technique for you!

The Golden Ratio: The Story of PHI, the

the ratio between the width and

evident in many geometric shapes
and numbers in art and nature. For
example, knitters often use the
Fibonacci sequence to create stripes,
and the ratio between adjacent
Fibonacci numbers is . Alice Tang.

practice short-rows before venturing into a

at selvage edge, circle around and insert
through sts a second time, then pull tight

Weave in ends. Prepare foam core: Marking with a permanent marker, divide 22"
foam square into four 11" squares. Cut a
circle paper template about 10" in diameter, and draw around the template in each
11" square. Cut foam. Do not worry if your
cuts are not perfect. Stack foam circles
into a cylinder 16" tall. Glue foam circles
tog, following instructions for adhesive
(I sprayed each surface to be glued and let
set 5 minutes for tackiness, then pressed
them together firmly). Allow to dry before
placing inside footstool. When foam is
set, place inside footstool centered over
bottom. Pull knitted fabric of footstool up
until top is centered over top of foam. Use
a dpn to poke through knitted selvage into
foam to keep it in place while stuffing.
Working from seam opening, stuff fiber-

fill around cylinder, filling out spherical


shape, but not so full that it stretches the
rows. Stuff up to opening. Rem stuffing
can be inserted as you graft. Grafting:

The Dorchester Pullover marries


simple, classic shapes with delicate
details in a way that makes it truly
special. Though the bulk of the
sweater is worked simply in garter
and stockinette stitch from the
bottom up, the front panel is knitted
using a modular technique; scallops
are interconnected with picked-up
stitches. Courtney Spainhower.

the simplicity of pi shawls, which have all

an undemanding knit that is perfect for

Inspiration for the Park Lane Coaster and

from vintage dishes and china sets of the
1920s. The color palettes of jade, yellow, and
peachy pink are also reminiscent of the art
deco color palette of the time. These
vintage-inspired coasters and trivets would
pair perfectly with modern china and
old-time lemonade. Ann McDonald Kelly.

Shown at the bottom right, the Hobnail


Coasters were inspired by vintage hobnail
milk-glass pieces replete with beautiful
bobble-like textures. They are constructed
using the same math you would use for a pi

center out. The outer edge features first a
row of small bobbles and then a beautiful
staggered picot bind-off, giving the
impression of the hobnail texture while still
offering a flat surface to set your mug on.

Crochet Chain (ch)

Make a slipknot on hook. Yarn over hook and draw it through loop of slipknot.
Repeat, drawing yarn through the last loop formed.
Crochet Chain (Provisional) Cast-On

With smooth contrasting waste yarn and crochet


hook, make a loose chain of about four stitches
more than you need to cast on. Cut yarn and pull
tail through last chain to secure. With needle, working yarn, and beginning two stitches from last chain
worked, pick up and knit one stitch through the
back loop of each chain (Figure1) for desired number of stitches. Work the piece as desired and when
youre ready to use the cast-on stitches, pull out the
crochet chain to expose the live stitches (Figure2).

Figure 1

Figure 2

Emily Ockers Circular Beginning

Make a simple loop of yarn with the short end hanging down (Figure 1). With a crochet hook, *draw a loop
through main loop, then draw another loop through Figure 1
this loop (Figure 2). Repeat from * for each stitch to
be cast on (Figure 3). After several inches have been
worked, pull on the short end (shown by arrow) to
tighten the loop and close the circle.
German Short-Rows

Figure 2

Figure 3
Figure 1

With yarn in front, sl 1 pwise from left needle to


right needle. Pull yarn to back of work over needle
until both legs of stitch in row below are on top of
needle (as shown), creating a double stitch on
both sides of needle (Figure 1).
When working the double-stitch on subsequent
rows, work it as a single stitch (Figure 2).

Figure 2

I-Cord

With double-pointed needle, cast on desired number of stitches. *Without turning the needle, slide the stitches to other end of the needle, pull the yarn
around the back, and knit the stitches as usual; repeat from * for desired length.
I-Cord Bind-Off

When there are live stitches or picked-up stitches on left needle: With right side
facing, cast on number of stitches needed for I-cord (as directed in pattern) onto
left needle. *Knit to last I-cord stitch (e.g., if working a two-stitch I-cord, knit
one), knit two together through the back loops (Figures 1 and 2), and transfer all
stitches from right needle to left needle (Figure 3). Repeat from * until required
number of stitches has been bound off.

Figure 1

Figure 2

Figure 3

Knitted Cast-On

Place slipknot on left needle if there are no


established stitches. *With right needle, knit into
first stitch (or slipknot) on left needle (Figure 1)
Figure 1
and place new stitch onto left needle (Figure 2).
Repeat from *, always knitting into last stitch
made. For purl version, work as above, purling
into each stitch instead of knitting.

Jenys Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off
Step 1. If the stitch to be bound off is a knit stitch, work a backward yo (bring yarn to the front over the needle) (Figure 1). Knit

the next stitch, then insert left needle into yo and lift it over the
knit stitch (Figure 2). If the stitch to be bound off is a purl stitch,
work a standard yo (Figure 3). Purl the next stitch, then insert
left needle into yo and lift it over the purl stitch (Figure 4).
Step 2. Rep Step 1 for the second stitch to be bound off. Insert

left needle in second stitch from tip of right needle and lift it
over the next stitch. Rep Step 2 until all stitches have been bound
off. As you get into the rhythm of this method, you may prefer to
lift the yo and the previous stitch over the next stitch together in a
single motion (Figure 5).

A Farm-to-Fingers Story:

Buckwheat Bridge
Angoras
If you take a drive along the country lanes of Elizaville, New York,
you might spot a lone turbine at the top of a windy hill. If you make
your way up Kozlowski Road, you will be greeted by a pair of Maremma
sheepdogs and perhaps a gentle red fox (an unofficial part of the flock),
announcing your arrival at Buckwheat Bridge Angoras.
Buckwheat Bridge is a small solar- and wind-powered farm run by
business partners Sara Healy and Dan Melamed. Solar power is harnessed in the summer and wind power in the winter; this combination
provides reliable, efficient power, letting the farm raise and produce
animals and fibers year-round.
For the past twenty years, Sara and Dan have raised Cormo sheep
and Angora goats, and they process the fiber from those animals in
their cottage industrysized mill. Buckwheat Bridge products are made
entirely from animals raised on the farm. Complete Farm Products
is the trademarked label affixed to all Buckwheat Bridge yarn, roving,
and other items produced there, signifying that from start to finish,
they have been made solely on this small Columbia County farmstead.
Sara got into the business because she wanted to raise a few sheep
in order to handspin their fleeces. As time went by, she bred the ewes,
they had lambs, and eventually she had more fiber than she could
process by hand. Twenty years ago, it was difficult to find a mill that
could adequately process fine wool such as Cormo, let alone a mill that
would consider small runs at all.
After a few bad experiences, it became frustrating, since I had
put so much time into producing quality fleece, she explained. Mini
mills were then fairly new. At first, having our own mini mill was a
challenge. So much slow, hands-on work is necessary to put fine wool
through the machines, to open the locks of fiber. For fine wool, if I can
get 6 ounces (170 grams) an hour through that machine, Im happy.
Mini mills are geared more to medium fibers. For example, you could
process 10 to 12 pounds (4.5 to 5.4 kilograms) of Romney in a day. I
can do 3 to 4 pounds (1.4 to 1.9 kilograms) of Cormo.
Buckwheat Bridge produces about two hundred fleeces yearly. We
raise the lambs until they are a year old, then shear the first lambswool
clip and sell the lambs for meat. We also take the fleeces from the
ewes and the rams. About ninety to one hundred lambs are born each
year, she says. The first shearing of the Angora kids is at six months.
Called first-clip kid, the fiber has the finest micron count (less than 30
microns in diameter) and is the softest fiber the kids will ever produce.
The fleeces are skirted by hand to carefully select the finest fiber.
They are then washed, opened, blended, carded, pin-drafted, spun,
plied, dyed, skeined, and labeled in the mill, all with wind-turbine and
solar power from eighty-four solar panels.
The yarns produced at the mill include first-clip kid and lambswool:
70% kid, 30% Cormo; 50% kid, 50% Cormo; 100% kid; and 100%
Cormo. Buckwheat Bridge sells yarn, roving, felt, hides, and fleeces

Flea in Hudson, New York; and New York Vogue Knitting Live.
Buckwheat Bridge also provides custom processing for clients. Recently, handwoven jackets in the style of Coco Chanel were exhibited
in New York by artists Lidewij Edelkoort and Pascale Gatzen using
Buckwheat Bridge Cormo yarn. Designers Mariepaule Rossier and
Arturo Ceballos of Cottage on the Hudson are also Buckwheat Bridge
clients.
I believe strongly in educating consumers about the products they
buy, Sara says. We do our best, in a sustainable manner, to practice
farming, and our products truly represent our farm.
