Are you ready for gift giving? Our newest addition to our farm, Little Nugget, is helping to model a pair of fingerless mitts made from our own yarn made from a blend of angora and merino, knit using Susie Rogers' Reading Mitts, a free Ravelry download. Our line of angora yarn knits up beautifully using this pattern. Also to help you with your last minute gifts, we are offering 10% off store-wide through December 31st. New wooden products not included in sale items.
