“Once a year, we harvest the soft, white wool from the sheep and begin the process of transforming this naturally renewable resource into a wide selection of fibers and yarns. All of our wool is specially milled without harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, leaving it comfortable, soft and pure. Custom colored to reflect the ranch’s unique high-desert landscape, Imperial Stock Ranch yarns and fibers offer knitters, weavers and other fiber artists a naturally beautiful array of hues, textures and weights.”
“You won’t find Imperial Stock Ranch wool in any other yarn on the market. We are a USA wool product. We take pride in this, and hope you will, too, as you peruse our yarns.”

Holly adds: This would make a great gift for the quilter in your life!
“Measure-By-The-Yard”TM is the newest measuring tool for
those who work with measuring fabric of all types, especially for quilters.
“Measure-By-The-Yard”TM is the easy way to measure yardage,
because it Converts Inches into Yards at a Glance tm. Now
there’s no more trying to get a stretchy plastic or cloth tape to lay flat…no more flip flopping of a yard stick, no more using a calculator, no more guessing, or making the wrong measurement.”
Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!

QUINCE & CO. Yarns, Patterns, E-books
Pam Allen said, “This was a totally exciting idea to me that we could make a yarn here in the U.S.” So she and Rice set about to create a modern, affordably priced American-sourced yarn, spun in what was formerly a textile mill.”
“Instead of selling the yarn wholesale, Allen sells it directly to her customers from her Web site. This allows her to make a better product, a truly American yarn, at a price that is affordable to knitters everywhere. The yarn is available exclusively to see and touch at the flagship store, KnitWit in Portland, at Purl Diva in Brunswick, and at Loop Yarn in London. But most people buy “their Quince” from the Web site.”
“Allen dreams of a day when she can produce seasonal processed and spun yarn from animals raised in Maine. (The wool in Quince & Co. is currently all “territory” wool, which comes from the American West.) She sees local yarn as the next big thing, highlighting the individual qualities of the animal fleeces, much the way our farmers’ markets celebrate our specific regional vegetable varieties.”
