Kathleen or Kath, as we know her, is our knitting marvel here at the mill.  Kath designs and knits for us and helps with all knitting and crochet and weaving questions!  Spinner was designed by her, and she was inspired by the mill. 

Here is her note: The yarn used in the prototype was created and spun by Greg, the spinner at Mountain Meadow Wool mill, Buffalo, Wyoming. Greg created a bulky yarn, a soft 2-ply that worked up into a plush fabric with a cozy drape in natural colors of grey, cream, and light brown.

To showcase the yarn to best advantage, a simple pattern was created, with slipped stitches and an adjacent purl stitch, using a travelling stitch every fourth row, as the slipped stitches and purl columns form a stately spiral to the right edge. Inspired by the images of gears turning, bobbins spinning as sliver is spun into a twisted thread, this pattern reminds me of Greg and what he does so well every day.

    I visited your mill in late September and purchased your Saratoga fingering yarn to make this purse. I’m so glad I
    discovered your mill in Buffalo as I am originally from Wyoming and it’s so special to knit with yarn that is sourced and milled there.

    I love your Legacy club and look forward to some fun projects and great yarns to discover.

    I found your company through a YouTube channel and signed up to your mailing list. With your generous offer I was able to purchase Cora in the October colorway. To say the yarn is beautiful is doing a disservice…it’s absolutely stunning!! I was able to make a hat with the yarn and wanted to share it with you.The stitches are so defined and it was such a pleasure to knit with. I am certain my order will not be my last!
