Maple Leaf Rag, October Top of the Month Club 2015

Maple trees are a spectacular part of our fall leaf display. The green maple leaves gradually shift to bright yellow and then mellow into gold before they deepen to orange and then finally intensify into a fanfare of reds. As vivid as these colors are, the change from color to color is barely perceptible. Day after day, these blazing leaves defy the passage of time, until the early November rains bring them all down. Introducing the Maple Leaf Rag!
The wool this month is Falkland, the bright white wool from the Falkland Islands. The Falkland breed is a cross of Polwarth, Corriedale, and Merino sheep. Measuring 26 microns, this wool is crimped but still open and easy to spin; it will spin into a plump, resilient, bouncy yarn.
The wool/silk blend this month is Polwarth/TussahSilk, in a 60/40 combination. The extra silk in this luxe blend will give your yarn spectacular glow and shine.

We have two companion colorways this month, Maple Sugar (left) and Sun-Dried Grapes (right.) The companion colorways are available through both the Etsy shop and through the link in your shipping notice to our webshop.

Have a lovely October 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.
