Meeting Another Yarn Farm!
Underhill Farm At The Sewickley Farmers' Market
Wow - the colors in the picture are just great! We visited the Sewickley Farmers' Market for the first time this summer ....... embarassing for this farmers' market fan, but the local Ambridge/Aliquippa Bridge has been closed for repairs since March. Boy, are we glad we went. We met Underhill Farm and got a chance to handle their yarns. They have Leicester Longwool sheep & Angora goats. What a great combination for their luster artisan yarns!
Underhill Yarn Colors Close-Up!
They said that the natural yarns are more popular in the spring, but that they start dyeing in the summer for the fall season. Seems many folks love the rich colors in the fall. I promised to keep in touch for the Waynesburg Sheep & Fiber Festival next spring & maybe schedules will mesh!
Check out their web-site for upcoming locations to buy their yarn ..........
