Our sheep come in browns(Shetland only), true black, all shades of grey, silver, natural(creamy white) and white. Alpaca fibers are black, fawn(golden tan), dark brown, beige, ivory and white. If you want an alpaca fleece, it needs to be reserved before spring shearing, otherwise all alpaca fleeces get processed. All fleeces are skirted for processing, meaning very little VM. All sheep are coated from October to shearing in April to keep hay out of the fleeces. Visits are welcomed and are by appointment only due to farm work. Best way to reach us is by email due to our crazy schedules.

UNWIND YARN COMPANY

TVH Member:  Dana HamiltonLocation:  Hixson, TN

SHOP WEBSITE: http://unwindyarncompany.bigcartel.com

E-MAIL:  Unwindyarncompany@gmail.com

PRODUCTS OFFERED:Processed natural fiber; Processed and hand dyed fiber; Handspun yarns; Handspinning equipment; tools or supplies.

PROFILE INFO:  I believe in gorgeous yarn, handdyed with attention to detail, that will produce beautiful items that will be enjoyed for years. I haven’t taken any courses in color theory, or gone to art school… however, I believe I have a natural eye for color combinations and a pretty good idea of what knitters love and want to use when making a special project. As a sock and lace knitter myself, I strive to offer a product that offers a lot of yardage for the money, and beautiful colorways that will both please the eye and become a gorgeous finished item.

I believe in soft, fluffy, non-compacted fiber that is a joy to spin for everyone from the beginner to the advanced spinner. I take exceptional care with my fibers while dyeing to ensure that they stay as soft and easily draftable as they can possibly be. Most of my yarn colorways are available on fiber, and vice versa; if you see something you love in my shop or sold items, but not on the fiber or yarn base you want, please feel free to ask!
