Let me introduce to you the creator behind this fantastic fiber company. Sam is the creator and master mind of this wonderment called The Wool Dispensary. I was so excited when I came across her on line shop I could not help my self.
The Wool Dispensary was founded in 2011 by the dyeing and design duo Sam Boice and Bree Miller. The two work together to create supercalifragilisticexpialidocious kettle dyed yarns and complementary knitting patterns.
The Wool Dispensary's yarns are extremely limited and special. Sourcing from small farms and mills they plan to support U.S. farm industry as much as they can. There are no formal dye lots, which means that each time they dye yarns, they turn out a little bit different. This is all the more reason to purchase when you see what you like! I loved the description that was given for the color inspirations. "Colors inspired by a love of circus history. Possessed by the romantic notion of running away into the swirling colors and vibrant reality of circus life. "
I did want to mention that the Branding for this company is dynamic! Everything from the post cards to the yarn tags that are hand stamped to the sticker that adorned my package of yarn.
This is Imperial Poison which is a farm raised wool from Imperial Stock Ranch in Oregon. The color way is rightly named 'Midnight Circus'. This is a fantastic 100% wool, worsted weight yarn, 245 yards, that was like butter in my hands when I knit with it! I chose a great hat pattern Dreamweaver I loved it.
(I made my friend pose in the hat for me!)
The second yarn that I was able to test was Deadliest Poison. I really don't know how to put into words how amazingly squishy and bouncy this yarn is! Not to mention again the fantastic colors.
This is a merino, cashmere, nylon blend in a DK weight. Each skein contains approximately 230 yards of goodness.
The Wool Dispensary receives a 5 Needle Review Rating!
