We had a wonderfully distracting day on Thursday, going out to Folsom Farms in Alexandria, Tennessee. They are the newest farm that we're sourcing wool from for our Farm Fibers! Jennifer and her daughter led us around her family's beautiful farm, and we got to meet some sheep, her sweet dog Juno, see lots of chickens and goats. They're located right in the heart of Middle Tennessee, and have spent 15+ years restoring exhausted corn fields into what is now a working family farm. I'm so thrilled to continue growing Nutmeg Fibers in this direction, as we begin to work with more farms in our area to source wool and create yarn for you makers out there that is truly unique and wonderful to work with. I'm shipping this off to the mill this weekend! Can't wait to see it when it comes back!
Also, don't forget that we have an open studio day tomorrow! Here are the details:
