Introducing our heartiest Bloom yarn, a breed-specific wool made from 100% Cheviot fiber from York Farm in Shelburne, MA.  From the heart of the Western MA Fibershed region, Hearth is the yarn to use for the warmest hats, mittens and sweaters....so you and yours are prepared for the coldest of the New England weather.  Need some water resistance while doing farm chores or out for a brisk walk?  These large skeins of Hearth have you covered!  We recommend kitting in front of a warm fire while the snow swirls....

 

Cheviot wool is unique with its helical structure.  It's crimp follows the same intricate spiral as our DNA.  What does this mean for yarn?  This special crimp makes for a bouncy, airy arrangement of fibers that holds more warmth, especially when woolen-spun - which is exactly what we did!  Spun at Bartlettyarns in Harmony Maine on the last remaining spinning mule in the country, Hearth is a hard-wearing 3-ply yarn that knits up lovely, light and strong.
