Yarn Love

At this stage, you would think it would be nearly impossible for a yarn to turn my head. I am completely spoiled by our glorious Cormo share yarn every year, and I am really, really proud of our commercial yarns.

So when a giant box of yarn arrives from the mill, I rarely ever gasp. I almost never get a lump in my throat and have tears in my eyes. But the latest box of yarn to cross my doorstop brought out my full inner kittenhead.

This yarn is gorgeous, even if you don’t know anything about it’s origins. Even if you don’t know that I started the colored flock as a surprise to cheer my sister up when she was going through a rough patch.

Even if you don’t know Roquefort, who once got into a fight with an ornamental concrete rooster. (Roquefort is still holding a grudge.)

Even if you didn’t watch our very first colored lambs being born on the Lambcam this year.

Even if you haven’t watch those lambs grow into healthy, robust sheep.

Even if you never had the pleasure of meeting Miss Leo.

Even if you don’t know any of this, the 2102 Colored Flock yarn is completely covetable.

But when you do know all those things? Well, it positively glows.

We do have a few spaces left in our 2013 Colored Flock CSA, although I suspect they will go fast now that the 2012 Shareholders have received their yarn. Judging from this thread on Ravelry, and the emails I’ve been getting, they can totally see it glowing.

  1. I got mine yesterday and I am just amazed at it! I already bought shares for next year :)

  2. Gorgeous! I’m so glad I have a space in your 2013 CSA — it will be sooooo hard to wait a whole year!

  3. I can’t wait to get my hands (or my needles) on my share!! It looks gorgeous!

  4. Congratulations Susan and Juniper Moon Farm! Another wonderful story – or should I say yarn ;-)

  5. Got my share in the mail yesterday and haven’t stopped holding it!! Just wish you hadn’t told everyone how wonderful it is….was hoping to keep all the shares for myself:)

  6. LOVE it….it is absolutely beautiful. I received my share yesterday. I am so excited to fluff it and dream of what to knit….

  7. My colored share came yesterday, am glad I have already ordered my colored share for 2013. It is undoubtedly the most beautiful yarn I have bought is a long time, I had planned to weave it into something special but I am reconsidering that choice it screams to be knitted. I will see what it says after it is fulled, but know that whether it ends up knitted or woven it will be special because of you, Susan and the colored flock at Juniper Moon Farm. Thank you for all you do and for the effort you make so us Sheperd wanna be’s can have this gorgeous yarn and be a part of the farm!!

  8. I found my share when I got home yesterday and it is simply splendid! Now I have to decide what to make that will honor this lovely yarn and the special place it comes from.

    As an aside, I opened the package with our new little blind kitten sitting next to me and of course, she had to smell it. A new smell for her and she purred with approval. Before I knew it she was off with one of the skeins just as proud as she could be. She didn’t get far, but it’s now safely tucked away out of reach of blind kittens, curious cats, and the husband – who doesn’t need to know how much yarn I have!

  9. Got my share in the mail this week and I went all goofy when I realized it was the colored flock. I have showed it to so many people who can’t believe that the color is natural. I have to wait until after the holidays to crochet up something special for myself. Thank you, thank you, thank you AGAIN for being so special!
