2nd Edition is Under Way
We've been busy this summer lining up sources for our 2nd edition beanies. Jodee Hartman is working with us again to design and knit them. The Vermont Fiber Factory was sold and unable to help but Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney Vermont has stepped in to create the yarn. Sally Mae had a nice year but gave her wool to another cause. For this edition we'll be mixing alpaca and merino, the merino coming from a farm in Ferrisburgh, Vermont. We'll be disclosing this year's star sheep in a month.
Those of you who did not receive your beanies from last year's run are first in line for this one. We'll notify you individually when they are available.
We expect beanies to be available by the end of October and will post updates as things move ahead. In the meantime here's a fun video of alpaca shearing:
