Hot and Sweet, August Top of the Month Club 2015

Baby its red-hot outside! Lately, weve had temperatures in the nineties, and some days the thermometer says 100 degrees. This heat can be hard for us to bear, but the tomatoes love these sultry days; they take the heat and turn it into luscious color and tangy sweetness.

A quick tour through the farmers market shows a parade of colorful tomatoes: dirty-red-brown and chocolate-red Cherokee Purples, sweet red and pink Brandywines, marbled red and orange German tomatoes, vivid red-orange cherry Sungolds, and redder-than-red Big Beefs and Celebrity tomatoes.

Welcome to our August TOMC: beat the heat with Hot and Sweet!

The wool this month is Corriedale! Corriedale is one of the most popular breeds of sheep. This top is approximately 28 microns, open and moderately crimped, and it is easy to draft and spin into almost any weight of yarn. It is also great for felting.
The wool/silk this month is Polwarth/Silk 85/15. Polwarth is such a favorite: it spins into a yarn with spectacular body, and the gleaming tussah silk adds eye-catching gloss.

The companion tonal colorway this month is Eggplant. It is available by pre-order through the webshop and the Etsy shop.

Stay cool and Happy Spinning!

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.
