I brought in this yarn because I like the texture, colors and story.
Mountain Meadow is a spinning mill set below the Big Horn Mountains on the Western Plains of Wyoming. It is a family operated mill, owned by Karen Hostetler and her son, Ben , and dedicated to supporting local ranchers and raising awareness about ranching culture in the American West. Mountain Meadow is committed to revitalizing the American wool industry through eco-friendly operations and fair prices for ranchers.
This mountain merino wool is below 22 microns and comes from Rambouillet, Cormo, Targhee, Merino and Columbia breeds. To maintain the beauty of the natural fiber, Mountain Meadow uses environmentally friendly cleaners and vegetable based spinning oil. Eco-friendly manufacturing practices help the wool retain its natural lanolin, resulting in luxurious yarns that have a soft and natural connection to the land. Each premium skein of yarn can also be traced back to our local ranch supplier.
