Clear Light Dawning, July Top of the Month Club 2015

The early summer heat has been unusually intense here and in order to enjoy time outdoors, I go outside just before the sun rises. The pre-dawn is cool and I like to sit and watch as night becomes day; a special sight awaits me then.

It is dark when I first go outside, but as the sun nears the horizon, faint shadows appear under the trees. Light slowly fills the dark sky as the landscape gradually assumes its daytime colors. When the first ray of sunlight strikes the oak trees crown, the rest of the farm is still swathed in that special clear light of dawn. This is the moment I have been waiting for: welcome to Clear Light Dawning, our colorway for the July Top of the Month Club.

We return to Organic Polwarth for our wool selection this month! This fabulously soft (22 microns) and incredibly white wool is certified organic and is from the Falkland Islands. Crimped but open, this Polwarth is easy to spin and will make a yarn with plenty of body.

The wool/silk blend this month is Merino/Silk, 80/20. A perennial favorite, this fiber will spin into a yarn with plenty of bounce that gleams with tussah silk.

The companion colorway this month is Dawn Sky.

Warm(est!) regards and Happy Spinning to you!

Situated on a hill overlooking the Haw River, Three Waters Farm looks out over a mixed terrain of fields, woods, and water in the piedmont of North Carolina. We moved here in 1989 with the intent to raise our family on a working homestead. Initially we produced a mix of organic vegetables, cut flowers, goat cheese, and baked goods at the Carrboro Farmers' Market.
Since 1997, we have focused on making products from our sheep's wool and our goat's milk. We produce a variety of hand-painted yarns, and spinning fibers, and from our goat's milk, we make Goat's Milk True-soap, using our own special recipe.
