American Wool Series: Insouciant Fibers

Insouciant Fibers is a small, local fiber company based out of Bainbridge Island that uses breed-specific animal fibers to create artisan yarns. All of the fibers are sourced in the Pacific Northwest and come from micro-farms and the breeds range from Jacob to Costswold to Border Leicester, just to name a few. 

 As you can see, the Jacob wool I picked up at Churchmouse hails from Port Townsend, WA and each Insouciant Fibers yarn label will tell you where the fibery friend your yarn comes from is located.

Insouciant Fibers' yarn line is locally-sourced wool at its best; breed specific, locally raised, and a beautiful, natural color palette. If you love sheepy wools and supporting small farms and farmers then this is the yarn for you. Read all about the fiber animals that comprise Insouciant Fibers on their website or pick some yarn up in person at Churchmouse Yarns & Tea or Tolt Yarn & Wool.
