yarn using traditional semi-worsted milling machinery."
As part of the Washington County Fiber Tour,
visitors were invited in to learn what it takes to go
from fresh-shorn fleece to processed and dyed yarn.
The mill is filling a huge need here in upstate NY
by providing a service that small hobby farmers
used to have to send out of state for, and that was
only if they deemed it a financially-viable step.
We all got a free skein of partially processed yarn (on the right).
Both it, and the natural sock yarn (on the left) that I bought,
are going to get the Kool-Aid dye treatment at some point.
