yarns

Last fall when I traveled to the Taos Wool Festival, I discovered a remarkable cormo yarn from Elsa Wool Company.
The simple, pure honesty of her yarns, paired with a buttery softness and delicate texture, enchanted me...

...I think this is the most beautiful yarn ever. So soft and alive and great, great colour!

It is nothing short of the most divine yarn I have ever worked with.....

All of my yarns are made from the fine and soft wool of purebred Cormo sheep.
The yarn colors are the actual colors of the fleeces of the sheep (white, black, and gray), and blends of those colors.
White Cormo fleeces are a bright white, not a cream color.
Black and gray fleeces become brown-tipped after exposure to the sun; so the more dark wool in a blend, the more brown the color.
My light grays are warm grays; my medium grays are brownish grays; my dark grays are very brownish grays; my darkest shade is chocolate brown.

  • Woolen-spun yarns are lofty, warm, and absorbent.
  • (woolen-spun and worsted-spun)
  • Worsted-spun yarns are dense, smooth, and strong.
