Insouciant Fibers Fort Flagler Romney

This 100% Romney Wool has naturally long fibers, with expert spinning giving it a springy but substantial character. A delicious knit! This season's batch arrived in the loveliest mix of brown and greyso sheepy! Any worsted weight accessory or garment will boast loads of body and squish. And even better, these sheep have a history.

We've actually carried this wool before in our shoppreviously known as Beaver Valley Romney from Insouciant. When the Beaver Valley farm was recently sold, fiber enthusiast (and part-time sleuth) Carrie DeFoe of Insouciant Fibers kept her eyes and ears open for news of where the flock would be relocated. Then one day, out of the blue, a husband and wife team caretaking a farm down in Fort Flagler, Washington called to say they had purchased several of the Romneys from Beaver Valley. Hurrah! With exquisite fiber and names we loveLily, Lilac, Violet, Tanzy, Sweat Pea and Marigold just to name a few. (Apparently Zinnia is a bit of rebel, diving over fences whenever she can!)
