Bread and Wool
And my latest obsession: hearty bread and sturdy wool.
Shelter, Jared Flood's 100% American wool yarn. To say that I actually teared up when I unwound the first skein and found a blade of grass amongst the fibers is not an exaggeration. Shelter starts with beautiful, shaggy Wyoming sheep and ends spinning through a historic mill in New Hampshire. Go take a look-see. It's American and it feels so... real, somehow. Like something Ma Ingalls would have knit if she had her pick of any yarn on the prairie.
It's that amazing.
this recipe best so far, although I've adapted it for my own tastes. I feel a completed recipe coming soon.
Bread and wool talk, to be continued...
