The Fields: Myrtle
100% Bluefaced Leicester wool
300 yds–100 g
heavy DK weight
We are thrilled to introduce the newest small-batch offering from Wool & Honey: The Fields. Bright, bouncy and soft, this is a secret project that’s been in the works for months: a yarn grown, spun and dyed in the Mitten. Sourced from two family farms, this wool-lover’s yarn is 100% Bluefaced Leicester, and spun at the 110-year-old Zeilinger Wool Company in Frankenmuth, MI. It’s a combination of creamy, white fleeces combed together in a 3-ply heavy DK-weight yarn that’s sturdy, lofty and farm-fresh, and hand painted by our dear friend Brittney Lockridge in a color palette named after our favorite flowers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime edition yarn; there is a finite number of skeins available, and once they’re gone, that’s it. Forever.
Zeilinger Wool Company is a fourth-generation-run wool mill in Frankenmuth, Michigan. We chose Zeilingers for the project, not only because of their proximity to the shop, but because of their extensive experience with the fine fleece of Bluefaced Leicester wool. We are so grateful to April and Jon for giving yet another project of ours their undivided attention
Britty Rae Knits of Petoskey, Michigan, is owned and operated by Brittney Lockridge. A former high school history teacher and Arizona transplant, she immediately took up knitting to keep her desert blood warm in the Great White North–where it quickly became an obsession. We love Brittney’s spunky dyeing style and are thrilled with the custom color palette she designed specifically for The Fields.
