“You know we are passionate about yarn. We are also passionate about wool, heritage breeds of sheep and supporting U.S. sheep farmers. When Jeane deCoster of Elemental Affects approached us about doing a private label yarn, we were thrilled. Jeane’s U.S. grown and milled Shetland yarn has been one of our favorites for years. Jeane has developed a new yarn for us that you are going to love.
Heirloom is a 100% U.S. grown, milled and dyed Romney yarn. Romney is an especially adorable breed of sheep that evolved from medieval longwool sheep. Their wool is lustrous, strong and hardy and garments made from it will look great for years to come.
Fancy Tiger Craft’s Heirloom Romney is a worsted weight yarn. The base yarn is a natural light heathered grey which is then over-dyed in small batches by Jeane. All of the colors have amazing depth and you can see the heathered wool in the paler colors. The yarn is sold in awesome 4 oz hanks that give you 200 yards of woolly goodness to work with. One of the most exciting things about developing this yarn with Jeane was choosing the color palette. What happens when Fancy Tiger Crafts gets to pick colors? You get a modern and stunning spectrum of 21 colors. 3 shades of yellow? Check. Hot pink? Check. 2 shades of mysterious almost-black? Check. Not only do we love each and every color, but we can’t handle how good they all look together! We also got to name the colors so of course they were named after Heirloom plants such as Mullein, Radish, Golden Beet, Elderberry and Nettles.”
