Above, from left to right, are a single ply Romney, a double-ply Lincoln Romney blend, double-ply Shetland, & a crazy art yarn made from Mohair & Lincoln plied together. All are from small Maine farms and all are dyed with Cushing dyes. I love the Mohair!

But the Shetland has also captured my fickle heart. So soft! So many shades of brown! So much fun to spin! Sigh...You can expect to find several serious skeins of natural Shetland for sale at VB during our Holiday Open House, Dec 3-5.
Then, of course, there's the CASHMERE.
This wee bowl is from my goats.
VB will also be featuring raw cashmere & gorgeous yarns from Black Locust Farm, just up the road. Yvonne Taylor is my goat mentor & I can only aspire to the greatness of her cashmere products at this point. But my girls & I are working on it! They're both out under the apple trees fiercely concentrating on growing beautiful fiber as I write this post.
Village Books is open Fri-Sat, 10-5 through Christmas. If you are curious about the new yarns or want to know about new titles in books, drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 207-845-2133.
