The fibers for this gorgeous yarn all come from the Napa Valley hills. Mary, owner of Twirl, has an amazing farm where she cares for a cornucopia of farm animals - sheep and goats and bunnies and alpacas - of all different sizes and colors. Every so often, Mary takes the fibers produced by her menagerie and using a small family owned mill, creates yarn - such a treat for all of us!
Ditto is a 2-ply yarn. Each colorway is named after the animal whose wool is most prominent in the yarn. Our current batch of Twirl is made entirely from undyed fibers - showcasing the beauty and breadth of possibilities created entirely from nature. Hand wash only.
*Please note as each blend is a little bit different, causing nuance in the milling, each colorway has different yardage. However, the gauge will be similar when knitting. See list below.
