WHO WE ARE

Cestari Sheep and Wool Company is a small family-owned and operated American manufacturer of knitting and crocheting yarn.  We have a farm in Augusta County, Virginia where we raise sheep for wool that we use in our yarn.  We also source wool from reputable ranchers throughout the United States.  All of our sheep and wool products are always grown and processed in the United States.  Our cotton products are grown and processed exclusively in Virginia.  

ABOUT OUR WOOL

Cestari wool is washed using a scouring process that keeps natural lanolin in the yarn and maintains the natural bounce and texture of the wool.  We prefer our scouring process to the more contemporary carbonizing process because a carbonizing acid bath, done overseas, would burn out the vegetable matter, leaving the wool very clean but removing the lanolin and leaving the wool with less bounce and changing the original texture.  Sometimes specks of easily removable hay or straw remain in our yarn; owner Francis Chester likes to say that if you put his yarn to your ears, you can almost hear the sounds of life within it.

  • A brokenhearted goodbye to Judie Wise.

    Judie was an icon and constant in Sheep’s Clothing. She started working for Jimalee just after moving to Kennewick, when the store was across from Winco. She was encouraged to teach classes and did so 4 days a week for over 15 years. Judie learned to knit and crochet at age 3, from “Grandmom”, who […]
