We couldn't be more excited to be partnering with Bobolink as they launch their inaugural line of local breed-specific, flock-specific yarn. Their initial offering is a 3-ply fingering-weight yarn from the Romney sheep of Scuttleship Farm in Panton, Vermont. This yarn is Animal Welfare Approved and spun by a mill that specializes in producing fine yarn from long-wool breed sheep.
Bobolink Yarns aims to bridge the sheep to yarn market gap by paying small-scale shepherds a fair and sustainable price for raw wool, milling it into top quality yarn, and bringing that yarn to New England yarn shops. Owners Katie Sullivan and Matt Wimmer raise sheep at Cloverworks Farm in Irasburg, Vermont, and are passionate about local yarn.
