Gosh it’s been a busy week. Yesterday we launched the Woolful podcast and today we launched the Woolful Mercantile. And I say “we” because there is no possible way I could have done this without the help of my ultimate encourager, business partner and husband, David.
These past few months, and especially these past few days, he’s taken Coltrane on extra adventures and answered endless requests for feedback while I edited, designed, emailed, etc. I find myself saying “my” a lot. My blog or my shop or my fiber mill. I’m disappointed when I hear myself say this because everything having to do with Woolful is very much we. You may only really see or hear me on the blog or Instagram, but behind the scenes is someone as equally present and part of these dreams.
So, without further ado, I present to you the Woolful Mercantile, fiber finds for fiber folk. We are the first and only US retailer of Ton of Wool Cormo. You can now pre-order some of the most incredible yarn I’ve ever laid hands on, Ton of Wool Cormo in both Aran and Fingering weights. Also available for pre-order are limited edition project kits featuring Little Woolens patterns. Our first project kit includes the soon to be released Prairie Grass hat pattern, 1 skein of Cormo in Aran weight and packaged in a beautiful bento bag from Ambatalia.
All products are shipped directly from our ranch in Idaho, so you pay only domestic shipping and all orders over $150 ship free.
Cormo is unlike any yarn you’ve ever laid hands on. Founded in 1959 by the Downie family in Tasmania, this breed of sheep is a cross between a Corriedale and Saxon Merino. With Cormo’s strong yet fine wool, it’s composition is unparalleled.
TONOFWOOL is the only Cormo wool originating from the Downie family’s purebred flock, a true single farm yarn, grown in Australia and sustainably processed in New Zealand.
