November Top of the Month Club 2016

While weve been savoring the lingering warmth of this long Indian Summer, fall has imperceptibly crept up on us. It is still unusually warm here, with the exception of a few blustery breezes and near-freezes, but the trees have finally stopped their summer-pretense and slipped into their ebullient party clothes.
Two of our dogwood trees changed into their splendid reds almost overnight; at the same time, the sugar maples slipped into their golden-oranges. The oak trees, with their somber reds, are attempting to chaperone the accelerating rumpus, but the hickory and sycamore trees just tease them with heedless, golden, fluttering insanity. In spite of the heat, the kooky fall shenanigans have arrived: the party is ON and we are making the most of this Fall Folderol!

The wool this month is Organic Polwarth. Polwarth sheep originated in Australia from a cross of Lincoln (coarse long wool with luster and curl) and Merino (fine shorter wool, highly crimped.) At 22 microns, this Polwarth is fabulously soft; this wool is less crimped than Merino and thus more open and so it is easier to spin.

Our wool/silk blend is Merino/Superwash Merino/TussahSilk, 40/40/20. MSWMTS dyes beautifully, is amazingly soft, and it has super-draftability.

Our Tonal Companion Colorway this month is Tree Greens.

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.
