Insouciant Fibers Merino / French Angora

Twice local - we love that! These yarns are brought to us by Insouciant Fibers, a Bainbridge Island company dedicated to sourcing local fleeces from happy animals. Each yarn is a limited edition, and every batch has its own character.

Insouciant's Carrie says, "The wool is from two pampered older sheep that live in a very sweet barn with the kindest shepherd you can imagine. She is in her eighties and when her girls get sick, she has been known to sleep in the barn on bales of hay through the night to tend to them. They follow her around the property and eat grain from her hand." SO SWEET!

The Angora bunnies are from Carrie's own rabbitry. She has included only the black angora from Gigi and her new fawn doe, Ruby to give this soft springy yarn a hint of gray.

A wonderfully soft yarn, thanks to the fine merino and halo of angora. It's a lofty yarn and gauge is versatile. Perfect for drapey shawls or cowls.
