One of Cowgirl Yarn’s main claims to fame is our vast collection of Wyoming grown yarns and fibers. We love staying local because we love our community. Locally grown fiber in Wyoming isn’t hard to find either. Though small farm fiber production isn’t as abundant as it used to be, many Wyoming ranchers are making a living from the land and their animals.
This spring we added a little something new to our local collection, a card your own batt or rolag station! This station features picked wool from the Tronstad Ranch, a local ranch about twenty minutes outside of town, that has been hand dyed in a rainbow of shades.
This opportunity allows picky spinners the opportunity to create exactly what they want from the most local of fibers. Along with picked fiber from the Tronstad’s we have Teeswater, Wensleydale, and Blue Faced Leicester locks to add in to your batts and rolags for a bit of texture.
