The wool yarn we discuss comes from sheep raised in Crowheart, Wyoming and Riverton, Wyoming. The wool we have in this area has been raised especially for your comfort. As you can probably tell by now I have a soft spot in my heart for Wyoming wool. For several generations, my family has owned ranches and raised animals. I no longer take care of the animals, but I still love the entire process none-the-less. Many a winter Wyoming wool kept me warm, and it will keep my grandkids warm for many to come. 🙂

Most products sourced from here are custom spun and all natural colors. I also like hand dyed yarns, handspun yarns, some commercial yarns, and many knitting and crocheting accessories. Examples of what I like are sweaters, shawls, scarves, vests, handmade saddle pads, rope vases, greeting cards, suede and leather pillows, baskets with deer antler handles, and ponchos. If my memory serves me correctly, most of these come from sheep raised outside Big Horn, Wyoming.

We are also known for saddle pads made from wool roving and if you look hard you can probably find the supplies to make your own. Personally, I recommend Wyoming wool blankets in sizes TWIN and QUEEN.

If you’re looking for something different then Navajo Churro Roving and soy soap wrapped in wool and lanolin bars come from the Spear S Sheep and Cattle Co. which has gulf coast oil and gas in Lander, Wyoming. I also buy A LOT of locally made goat milk soap, lotion, lotion bars, and lip balm, but none of the local companies ship. 🙁 Shoot me a quick email if you want recommendations, or even better if you want to let me know about any companies doing similar things!

I must, for one moment, preach about hand dyed material. Personally, I love it. I find the quality is much higher in terms of longevity and brightness with the colors. You will notice the “pop” and that won’t fade for a long time. However, you should be sure to only use environmentally friendly dyes. The best dyes don’t need the damaging chemicals: they are just a shortcut!!!
