February Top of the Month Club 2018

Looking down upon the wintry fields from a second floor window, I can see the bleached greens, soft golds, and muted oranges of the field grasses. From up high, these fields appear still and unchanging, but my morning walk reveals a more nuanced reality. Close to the soil, mixed in with the frosted grass, bright bits of green growth tell the story beneath the earthy and subdued winter colors, the story of roots and shoots making ready for the coming surge of spring grass. The hardy tips of the daffodils and crocuses are already pushing their way up, signaling that the treasures of late winter and early spring won’t be too terribly long in coming. I will patiently wait! Welcome to Quiescence, our February TOMC!

Our wool this month is Rambouillet! Rambouillet sheep were developed in France by crossing merino stock with long-wooled sheep; they were introduced into the US in the mid 1800’s. They thrive in the western range-lands of the United States, which is where this Rambouillet originates. Fine and springy like merino, this fiber will spin into a next-to-the-skin-soft yarn with plenty of bounce.
Our wool/silk blend is the deluxe blend, 60/40 Polwarth/Tussah Silk. The extra silk makes this a fabulously luxurious blend and will give your yarn spectacular glow and shine!

Our companion tonal this month is Winter Greens.

Our Instagram tags for February are #twffeb18 and #threewatersfarm

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.
