Made in America: Why You Should Knit Your 30 Day Sweater with Brown Sheep Yarns
The Brown Sheep company is a tried and true American success story. Theirs is a story of a 100 year old ranch and a sheep farmer that came upon hard times. That farmer sought out other avenues to make his farm work for him and before too long decided to spin his wool into yarn. After procuring mill equipment he put it all together (without instructions) and in a few months time taught himself to create yarn. The story doesn’t end there, he then drove around and peddled yarn until he his yarn business was successful. Now the “little mill that could” has grown to include 15 yarn lines and an incredible array of colors.
For many knitters, knitting a sweater seems like a huge challenge to face. But we believe you can do it and that this sweater is going to be your next success story.
